For this post, I have put together a collection of the best swim nappies currently available. For more buying guides, see my list of essentials for a new baby.
Taking your baby or toddler swimming is fun and will help build their confidence in the water. To save on any accidents whilst splashing around it is essential for them to wear a swim nappy.
We’ve handpicked the best reusable and disposable swim nappies which will help avoid any messy situations or the embarrassment of your child having an accident in the water.
Let’s get going!

A reusable swim nappy looks like a normal pair of swimming shorts or forms part of a swimming costume and can be worn multiple times. Great for taking on holiday.
