    We have used the swim nappies that are reusable for the past 18 months. They work fine, just rinse or throw in the machine after use. You can get them from Big W for about $8 or Woolworths have them this week for $6. I think all swim nappies only contain a poo, none soak up wee. Ours have been washed 2-3 times a week and are still fine for about 6months before they grow out of them or the heated pool chlorine kills them.

    You can also use a cheap cloth nappy with no inserts- so just the shell- if you have one around. I either use that or Huggies swim nappies (picked some up at a garage sale, bargain!)

    Thanks ladies! Sorry I should of been more clearer in my op..I read that some people use swimming nappies, disposable or reusable, but then put a plastic nappy cover over them as well. I wouldn't put a normal nappy on Ds in water Ive seen how much they poof up lol!

    I hadn't even thought of re using the disposables so thanks!

    Oh and I wasn't aware that there were comfy bots ones that's awesome...we use their normal nappies for Ds.

    Im such an idiot..for some reason I thought the dispoable swimmer nappies were meant to hold wee too...even though just by lookibg at them you can tell they wouldn't hold much liquid

    Ah well, I'm not so confused anymore thanks again ladies

    I bought a reusable one from Kmart for $5 and it is still going strong 1 year later! Love it!

    I am confused about this too. I have not taken bub swimming but was given some target swim nappies that look like a pair of undies but I guess a bit more swimmer like. Am I meant to put a swimming nappy under this or not?

    I don't really understand the point of disposable swim nappy??
    Using a washable nappy here, looks just like a baby speedo ;-)
