Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot!

No matter where you are in the world, there is always an opportunity to swim. Whether it’s a backyard pool, a community pool, a beach, or the bathtub, AppleCheeks Swim Diapers keep the poo out of pool!

We’ve had a lot of questions about our swim diaper and how it’s different from other diapers, so let us tell you!

The AppleCheeks Swim Diaper is the only one of its kind out there! It’s the softest, best-fitting swim diaper you’ll ever try. The reason for this is that we’ve incorporated our signature double row of snaps, meaning you get a perfect fit at the thigh AND the waist, not one at the expense of the other. We all know how important good fit is in a daily diaper, but it’s even MORE important in a swim diaper. Why, you ask? Well, you know all that water swishing around your baby? Its only purpose is to spread stuff around, and that’s something we don’t want to see happen with your baby’s poop in the pool, right?

An adjustable Swim Diaper is very important as we don’t want to give poop the chance to escape. And our Washable Swim Diaper features elastic at the legs, back AND tummy for a really snug fit. And our amazing swim diapers come in a One Size option so that you can use them from baby’s first swim as a wee little one to when she is around 2.5 years old or so and graduates out of diapers.

The lining of our diaper is a fine polyester mesh and the outer is the same knit polyester that you’ll find on our regular diapers, only unlaminated. This combination of fabrics allows water to move in and out of the diaper but makes sure any solids (including breastmilk poop because it’s thicker than water) stay nicely inside, giving you time to get baby out of the pool and changed should she have a bowel movement. There are no plastic or vinyl components to our diaper because all those elements achieve is to nicely channel water and poop straight out of the diaper into the pool, which kind of defeats the purpose of the whole exercise.

A question we get pretty frequently is how come there is no absorbency in our Washable Swim Diaper? And what does one do with baby when they are out of the pool having their snack? Any absorbency in a washable swim diaper will quickly get saturated with water the minute the baby enters the pool, and it causes weight and drag, neither of which you want when your little one is learning to float around in the pool! 

Once baby is out of the pool, we recommend either changing her into a regular AppleCheeks diaper or wrapping her in a towel as chances are pretty good that if she’s out for a bit she will pee!
