Need a swim diaper by tomorrow!
I found out swim lessons start tomorrow! I searched everywhere in town for swim diapers and found none. Can i use a cloth diaper? What kind? I have Sunbabys, bummis covers, fuzzibuns, and bum genius. Will any of these work? Thanks so much.

Re: Need a swim diaper by tomorrow!
yep any pocket diaper will work :)

you just may not want to use it as a regular diaper after that as the cholorine breaks down the pul

unstuffed pockets work great.. BEcause the clorine can weaken the PUL (though I've done it fairly consistantly with no issues) I'd vote for the SUN babies because of their cost. Unless they are your favorite then another less desirable one.

That's great. I'll sacrifice a sun baby. I wish I had one to match her swimsuit.

I sacrificed a sun baby today for swim lessons today and it worked perfectly!

Any unstuffed pocket diaper will do. I've heard the the PUL breaks down, but I have 2 swim diapers that I also use as laundry day diapers and have not found this to be true: We swim once or twice a week, and I use them as diapers about once every 2 or 3 weeks. Neither of them are any worse than my others.

If you are really concerned about it, just use what you have today, and order a Babyland for $2 and start using it. The once or twice you swim with the good diaper won't effect it.

Re: Need a swim diaper by tomorrow!
I actually ended up using a small AMP diaper she had outgrown (it fit her without the liner). It was the first cloth diaper she ever wore, so I'm probably going to go all sappy and buy her a swim diaper so I don't hurt her first diaper.

The bummis will work! I like to use Flips.
