I took my daughter swimming last week and we was only in the swimming pool for 30 minutes and her wee and poo started to leak out the sides of the nappy all over the side of the swimming pool and all in the shower cubicles, least the day that I will never be buying these nappy’s again.
Let water in
I have always used little swimmers for my girls but recently they have been letting water in. Thankfully they haven't leaked so far but they are always bulging now and when we take them off there is a puddle of water (and most likely urine) sitting in it. Today my husband had our wee one at the pool and she done a poo,he went back to the changing room to change her and again water had got in so when he took the nappy off poo ran everywhere,all over him,our daughter and the floor. My daughter is 2 and 33lb so they should fit. Not sure if the design has been changed but they're definitely not as good as they used to be.
Need bigger sizing!
I find it so frustrating that these nappies only go up to sizes 5-6. My 22 month old daughter is in size 7 normal nappies, the swim nappies don’t come near her and they leak straight away. I think Huggies should consider producing a swim nappy for sizing 6-7 for toddlers and disabled children.
The best swimming nappies ever
Tried lots of different brands but Huggies are by far the best swimming nappie ever
Are they designed to hold urine or not? They clearly don’t and as such “leak guard” is misleading to parents. Clear labelling of what they are intended to do would be useful for parents in a rush and possibly not reading the full details on packaging
Great for swimming
These pants are great. I started using them when my daughter was 7 weeks old when I first started taking her swimming. They don’t expand like normal nappies, easy to pull on and the Velcro doesn’t come loose until you ready to take off the swimming nappies
Not even deserving of 1 star
I have bought these nappies several times before and had noticed that twice at least my daughter was soaked before going into the swimming pool but just blamed myself for maybe sitting her down on the wet bench whilst I got changed. Then when I was on holidays I would change my daughter into one of these "leak protection" nappies immediately before going into the pool and both myself and my daughter where destroyed in urine because these nappies clearly do not work. These nappies are very expensive and are clearly not fit for purpose. I purchased Spanish swim nappies and they did an excellent job at half the price! I will not be wasting money on these again as I have absolutely zero confidence in there ability to stop urine from leaking through.
What's the point?!
They keep absolutely nothing contained. As they aren't absorbant (obviously) they don't contain wee which is fine as the chlorine kills that. But a poo? It just leaks out of every crevice! Better off with a neoprene swim nappy.
Leaked within 2 minutes
I bought these for my 1 year but I had only just put swimming shorts on over the top and wee was running down his leg!! I am very disappointed as I was very conscious during the swim. I will be looking around for other brands.
Great for older kids
My son is 10 and two years ago he got kicked in the back by a horse. As such he is now incontinant. He used to swim all the time but he couldn't after being kicked. He is quite small and thin and he manages to fit in to these. It's fantastic because he can now swim all the time and all of his accidents during swimming can now be dealt with
