    On the topic of pedos taking pics at pools. It must be enough of an issue in our area as our local pool has banned the use of cameras altogether in the facility. Not sure how they police it but there must've been cause for them to take such a drastic step.

    I imagine the risk of someone trying to take photos of a naked newborn is very, very small. There's really no way to do that in a subtle way. Children are at far higher risk from family members and trusted friends

    I did think all public pools required a swim nappy of some sort, just to contain poop- they sure don't do anything else!

    Considering newborn BM are so runny, how much do the swim nappies help to contain it anyway? Regardless, I would def have one on DS to at least be seen to be attempting to contain any poo's. It's a bit of common courtesy really isn't it?

    Yes, sexual predators are a concern but that would be a secondary concern on an average trip to a public pool IYKWIM? I think you should always be alert and aware but can't allow those thoughts to rule every venture out of the house.

    Do they make swim nappies that small? Hopefully she didn't do her business in the pool though being that young it was probably likely

    my eldest was completely tt by 2.5, having to put a nappy on him to take him in a pool wouldve peeved me off.
