Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: i play Little Unisex Child Ultimate Snap Swim Diaper (Toddler) (Apparel)
I bought size 18 months for my 22 lb, 9 month old boy. The diaper fits well and is thin enough to fit under any swim trunks. We tested it out on vacation and it worked fairly well - it caught the poop (although would probably not hold up too well with loose/runny poop), but didn't hold up well as far as absorbing pee. If you plan on spending a day at the beach or pool, you should plan on getting several of these to change every couple of hours or so.
We normally use cloth diapers for our little one and have been using the pocket diapers without the insert as swim diapers. Those work awesome, absorb well, and don't weigh the baby down when they're soaking wet as much as the iPlay diaper does (surprisingly). If you are already a cloth diaper user, I would recommend this alternative as opposed to spending the money on this diaper. If you are new to cloth diapering, the iPlay Swim Diaper is a great way to experience how easy it is to use reusable diapers, save money and save the environment while you're at it.

I hadn't even thought of using our cloth diaper covers. What a great idea--thanks for saving me some money!

Ditto on the previous comment. I hadn't even considered taking out the pocket insert of our cloth diapers so that we could use them in the pool. Genius!! Now I don't have to spend money for special swim diapers. THANK YOU!!

Swim diapers are not designed to hold pee.

One thing to consider is that often the waterproof PUL lining can be damaged by bleach -- and public pools use a lot of cholorine to kill germs. But if using only for lakes/beach that wouldn't be an issue. To be honest, I'd much rather use a $10 swim diaper than mymuch more expensive cloth diapers even at the beach. Also, wwim diapers aren't designed to hold pee, so that's not a malfunction at all.
