**Product received for review, all thoughts are 100% my own.

When it comes to summer playtime, nothing can beat having fun in the pool! Or the water table. Or the sprinklers. Oh, even the garden hose is fun for a kid! The point is, nothing beats splashing around to keep cool and have fun on those hot summer days!

And when you have a little one in diapers, you need a GREAT swim diaper that can keep up with the fun! For than, Charlie Banana cannot be beat! Let's take a look at what makes their Extraordinary Best Reusable Swim Diaper... well, the best!

Fit & Function

One of the things I loved most about Charlie Banana pocket diapers is that they seemed as though they would be incredibly comfortable for baby. They're soft, move well and not overly bulky. Many of those features I loved in the regular diapers crossed over into the swim diapers. They too were incredibly soft and wearable for summer fun.

As with all swim diapers, disposable and otherwise, these are not meant to be absorbent. Instead, they are there only to keep solids from ruining the swimming experience for all! The inside features a soft organic cotton lining that feels great against baby's skin and the outside is a waterproof PUL. This PUL outer is great for a few reasons- first of all, it helps with any accidents that may occur from the time its put on to the time you reach the water. Secondly, it allows it to pull double duty as underpants during potty training... or even as a cover for ugly disposables- with a bonus added protection!


Like all Charlie Banana diapers, the cuteness of these diapers cannot be beat! They offer a wide variety of prints and colors that are sure to compliment any style! I love the adorable prints I received, and so many others! Choosing just one would be nearly impossible! They will look great on their own for at home play... or with coordinating swimwear!

Affordability & Availability

At just $12-13 these diapers are VERY affordable... a much cheaper option that purchasing disposable swim diapers again and again! Just 1-3 diapers (depending on how often you swim/how quick you get them washed) should last you the entire summer! They ARE sized diapers, available in 4 convenient sizes, BUT at their cheap price, they still certainly beat out disposable options for sure!
And they're readily available! Of course, you can order online for the full variety of prints available, but they can also often be found at your local Target stores! If you're the type of person who prefers to see in person before buying, this is definitely a plus.

Summer Potty Training?

Aside from swimming, summer can also be a great time to jump into potty training if your little one is ready. After all, the warm summer weather is perfect for staying around home with no pants on- ideal for early potty days! As I mentioned, these swim diapers could serve double duty for PT, but Charlie Banana also offers their own Extraordinary Best Reusable Training Pants!

Now, while my little miss is beginning to show signs of potty training readiness, we are not actively potty training, but are already looking into good options when the time comes, and I think we've certainly found that. They are available both with side snaps for easy changes and without for a more natural underwear feel. The shape is very similar to the swim diaper- very much like typical underpants, but offers a thin microfiber lining for absorbency and a waterproof cover. These do not offer near the protection of what a cloth diaper would of course, but does offer more protection for those inevitable accidents than any cloth training pants I've seen!

Perhaps my favorite part of these training pants is the size range- they offer 4 sizes ranging from the super tiny (11 pounds) to big kids too (55 pounds). Having a special needs child who at almost 8 years old is not yet entirely potty trained, I can very much appreciate that these are available for kids of all sizes. I truly wish that I had had these available when my son was 3-4 years old and still learning to pee in the potty! How many headaches they might have solved!

Overall, I was really impressed with these great training pants, and (while I am not ready to enter that stage just yet), I look forward to having them available when we DO need them more! You can find out more and see all the cloth diapers available from Charlie Banana at the links below:
