View Full Version : Rubber pants for pool?

I signed DD up for a water babies class. They require swim diapers and then rubber pants for OVER the swim diaper. What are these? Where do I find them? Sporting goods store? Target? HELP! TIA!

I think we got some last year at Target. They weren't "rubber", which our pool requires, too, but rather a plastic. The brand was Gerber. I am actually headed to Target today to look for them so I'll let you know if I find them there!

Edited to add: I checked Target. They do stock them - they are Gerber Vinyl pants but my store was out of stock.

Babies R Us carries some too - you can also get them online through anyone who sells cloth diapers.

Our swim lessons have a similar policy. If you're wearing a disposable swim diaper, you need plastic pants over the diaper. But, our instructor is also happy with the re-usable swim diapers that they sell at Target. (I think the brand is "I Swim") They have plastic pants built in & are lined with terry cloth, and then a cute little fabric cover. The instructor's only requirement is that the diapers have real elastic around the whole leg.

I went to BRU for something else and checked for the covers - didn't find them. I'll have to get to Target to check out the I Swim's. Those sound interesting. Thanks, everyone :)
