    Default WWYD: Baby swimming without nappy

    What would you do? What did you think I did?

    I was at a very crowded public swimming pool and a lady had her 6-8? week old baby girl in the public pool without a nappy (naked).

    I thought you had to put a swim nappy on babies at public pool's? It's a rule at every pool I have been to anyway. I would probably be silently thinking ewww I hope it doesn't poop and move away just in case. Were you a 'dobber' VP?

    Not something I would do, never know when a poo is coming! I would probably have said something to the staff and let them make a call on whether they say something or not (my guess is for hygiene issues it would probably be a requirement that babies wear something just incase of accidents).

    I'd have a discreet word to one of the lifeguards/staff and let them deal with it.

    I'm interested to see what you did. I'm a sook and probably wouldn't have said anything!

    Say something! Having just had to entertain kids for hours, in the scorching heat, after a child without a nappy poo'd at the water park. I can't imagine the consequence of it happening in the pool!
    With the bub being so young perhaps the mum hasn't thought it through?

    Oh gross, it's not like newborn poo can just be scooped up either! I'd go with a PP and let staff know. Public pools almost always have a sign alerting parents that babies must wear a swim nappy, they could let her know that it's a condition of entry.

    I've always seen signs saying kids and babies who aren't toilet trained must be wearing a nappy. I would of let one of the life gaurds know and let them sort it.

    That is gross, I would have thought there'd be signs about nappies etc as well, where's the common sense? Naked? Not even a little rash shirt?! Poor bubba would probably get sun burnt on top of that...

    I should clarify it was an indoor pool...
