    If you do buy swim pants they'll last forever. Just throw them in the wash with the swimmers. They're not designed to break down but the companies don't want you knowing that.
    I have a packet that's from 2 years ago and I still have heaps of them left coz I only use one nappy the whole swimming season.

    Disposable swim nappies can be rewashed. They only hold the poo in, not the wee. Like a PP said, just chuck them in the wash with the swimmers.

    You can use MCNs for swimming. You can buy washable swim nappies or you can use a shell of a pocket nappy or AI2. Don't use any absorbant layers because they will just fill with pool water and bulk up.

    i used the cover of the MCN's. As my bubs got bigger though i got a washable swim nappy from target and it was great.

    yep just the cover. BE warned, chlorine does stretch the nappies, So I just use the same one over, and over, so I wouldn't corrupt my stash.
