    So I waltzed up to the lifeguard and asked him what their ploy was on bubs and swimming nappies as there was a young baby with nothing on. He said he would check with his supervisor. I went back in the water being careful to steer away from the mum and bub in question. Perhaps I wasn't discreet enough as the whole family got out of the pool shortly after even though they had t been there that long.

    When I hopped out the lifeguard tracked me down and said apparently there are no guidelines. Although staff try to encourage parents to use swimmer nappies the parents can dress their kids in whatever they like. He did say it would be inconvenient to everyone if the pool had I be shut down due to an accident.

    My response: "thanks for checking. Thankfully the family got out the pool before their baby did a big crap."

    What!? No guidelines? That's the dumbest thing I've heard all day.
    So unhygienic..

    I did point the family out to hubby and he said they looked like a hippy family (won't say why as although he may not be that far off the mark his assumption was based in something which is probably not that accurate an indicator and may offend some hubbers).

    I was at an outdoor lagoon pool with friends and one of the bubs had no nappy on and we were just sitting at the steps with only bubs feet in water and was asked to put a nappy on by lifeguard. Another one surprised about no rule in place regarding this

    Hey VP, I understand how confronting a random stranger when you have your own bub in tow can be a bad idea, especially not knowing how they may react; I'm glad a staff member was informed as the other children may have been at risk. Wouldn't have been smart to approach a "hippy" nutter, hey? Or, you could have enticed her out of the pool by offering to buy her a coffee

    Way back in the day when my oldest was a baby there was no such thing as a swim nappy. He started swimming lessons at 6mths and just wore speedo type swimmers same as everyone else. These days I still put DS2 (3yrs) in a reusable swim nappy (under rash shorts) just in case of the odd accident even in his paddling pool. One extreme to the other. I find it very strange the pool didn't have a policy on it.

    Glad you spoke up, VP! So weird they don't have a rule about it -- it's like they WANT poop in the pool...

    They have that rule at our local indoor pool, but guarantee you there's a poop siren every now & then and the whole pool is shut down and drained and everyone else gets the sh*ts lol...

    At home dd3 doesn't wear a nappy in public she wears those swimmers

    I don't think it's ok for a child any age to be naked in public unless it was a quick change just my imo
