    I have a "speedo" one for DD... its good, but they are quite tight fitting around the legs! (and dd is on the smaller side)

    I also use the huggies swim nappies, i know there disposable, but you can re-usse each one a few times (just rinse the when you get home and hang the on the line to dry)

    Blugh to expensive Huggies swim nappies, monkey doodlez do a swim nappy as well as mother ease, and bonnibuns, they really are basically all the same, waterproof outer with elasticized legs, it just needs to hold the poo in if they poo in the pool, if you already use cloth and have some ai2's or pockets you can use an existing shell

    I love resuable swim nappies, not only are they obviously re-usable, thus saving money, but they look so adorable on as opposed to dispoable ones.

    The ones we use are 'Fluffies' and Speedo ones. I find the Fluffies ones really good as they don't pill after heaps of washes, are adjustable at the waist and don't have a rigid elastic like some of them do.

    I prefer the Fluffies over the Speedos as the Speedos are a little more rigid in the elastic, so not as comfy as the Fluffies around the legs and waist.

    Just for information - Huggies swim nappies are reusable! Just chuck them in the wash with the swimmers when you get home. You can use and wash them quite a few times (about 6ish) before they get too flimsy.

    I bought a $25 "swim afloat" one from my local pool.

    They don't allow Huggies Swimmer nappies for lessons, only the nappy pants they sell there.

    The previous BBH owner always recommended using the shell of a multi-fit as a swim nappy, so that's what we have always done
