Difference between swim/regular cloth diaper

Ok, I have to ask what is the difference between swim diapers and the regular cloth diapers?

I figured they were really all the same, to keep moisture in and out.
Maybe I just haven't really thought about it to much.

But, do u have to buy 2 diiferent types?

Re: Difference between swim/regular cloth diaper

I'm not sure about what the waterproofing is on swim diapers. I remember reading that you might not want to use your regular diaper covers as swim diapers because having it in the chlorine water too often might affect the PUL. I don't know if that was just an opinion or whether that really is indeed true. I've done it once or twice, but I usually used a swim diaper. Most swim diapers usually have a thin layer of terry or something inside to give a bit of absorbency, like if your baby pees on the way to the pool I guess. If swim diapers are made of PUL then I think they'd work the same. But if they are something else, then maybe it would be better to get a swim diaper?
