Summertime means pool time for my family, and while I’m so so glad we’re finally all out of diapers this summer, I’m a little bit jealous that we missed the boat on so many adorable reusable swim diapers that are now out there. Not that jealous, mind you, because I’d much rather spend my extra cash this summer on popsicles, not diapers.(And heaven knows I’m delighted to be out of the diaper phase all together.) But if you’re in the market for cute, eco-friendly, and cost-effective alternatives to those disposable swim diapers, check out these favorites of ours that look more like bloomers or actual swimsuits for babies.
Psst, they’re all also great for potty training too.
The Honest Co is really taking over the eco market since their original launch of baby care products. Now in addition to regular diapers, they’re offering really well made Honest Reusable Swim Diapers in such fun, summery fabrics, they’re a hot ticket. In fact, if they’re sold out on their own site, find them at plenty of online and
I love the simple graphics and bright colors on the Whale Reusable Swim Diaper by I Play. The price is fantastic and I’m happy that they have built in UPF 50+ sun protection. Plus, machine wash. Score! ($9.99, Target, with limited time offer to get a second one at 50% off)
The sophisticated, Japanese-inspired fabric on the Koi Pond Swimmi reusable swim diaper by Bummis makes them perfect for boys or girls, but they have lots of other cute designs too. Nice bonus: They’re all made in Canada. ($14.50, Swim Outlet; other styles $12.99, Pure & Simple Baby)
The Lolla Spots resuable swim diaper by Tuga is a little bit modern, a little bit girly. There are other styles too which are so cool, I would wear them in an adult swim suit. Not the diaper kind though. Of course. ($11.99, Diapers.com)
What a great find: The Submarine reusable swim diaper pocket trunks by I Play which look just like big kid swim trunks. They have a built in reusable swim diaper inside but on the outside, you’d never know. How perfect for little kids who are ready to be big kids–and there’s even a board short style, for future surfing dudes. ($20, I Play Babywear)
Enjoy your time at the pool, and don’t forget the sunscreen!
