Let’s talk swim diapers!

Is your child wearing the proper swim diaper?

We have noticed an alarming increase in accidents among our younger swimmers. These accidents are not only unpleasant to clean up, but they are inconvenient to us and all of our swimmers. When there is an accident we have to move classes to the other pool, which often results in students not getting the quality of lesson we strive to provide. In order to reduce these incidents, we want to remind all parents about our swim diaper policies and provide you with some helpful information.

Our swim diaper policy:

  • Children who are under 3 years old OR are not 100% potty-trained must wear a reusable iPlay swim diaper underneath their swim suits. These swim diapers can be purchased in our office.
  • Disposable swim diapers CANNOT be worn under the reusable iPlay swim diapers. Regular disposable diapers are not permitted in the pool.
  • Our definition of potty-trained is: A child who has the capacity to know when they need to use the restroom and will ask to be let out of the pool to go to the bathroom. If your child is not quite there, please put them in a reusable swim diaper.
  • Read more about our swim diaper policy here.

Let’s talk about fit. Swim diapers should fit snugly around the legs and waist. There should not be any space or gaps. Our retail shop carries iPlay swim diapers in sizes 6 months up to 4T. We also carry a special line of Finis reusable swim diapers designed just for our 0-3 month old Water Babies. However, the “size” is not always the important part. Make sure to check the weight and buy the one best suited for your child. The iPlay size chart can help you decide which is the best option!

Check out this video our Infant/Toddler Program Director made that will hopefully help better explain how swim diapers should fit. She shows us, using her own little fishy, just how they should fit and how to tell if you need a different size.

Does your child’s swim diaper fit properly?

If you still have questions about swim diapers or need to purchase one that fits a little better, please stop by our office and any of our staff can help you find the right size! If you are unsure about your child’s current swim diaper, ask the Deck Supervisor or your instructor before your next class. Our staff is more than happy to help!

Thank you for helping us keep our pools clean and our swimmers safe!
