I want to put my son in his 1st swim class next month.  Do I have to use a "swim diaper"?  I bought 1 Charlie Banana swim diaper but it looks small, almost speedo like  LOL.  If I put this on him, can he wear just the swim diaper or do I need to put on a pair of swim shorts over them?

My motherease swim diaper looks like a little speedo, too. I would put some swim shorts on my DS, though I would be tempted to want to show off that swim diaper.

I generally use a cute bathing suit over the swim diaper.

Mine just go in the swim diaper by itself (Mother-ease).  I think the speedo look is cute!

There’s a big difference between Knowledge & Wisdom. Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in fruit salad.

I just use a Bummi's Swimmi by itself.  Never had anyone say anything.  But he is still so young (5 months).  I guess when he is walking around, I will probably use something over top.

we use iPlay swim diapers. they have the speedo type and trunks with the diaper built in. At our swimming classes, all kids under 4 have to have 2 swim diapers on (1 sposie and 1 cloth, or 2 cloth). Check with your place.

I just use an unstuffed pocket dipe for a swim diaper.
