Veelgestelde Vragen over Zwemluiers

Whether it's your first time taking your baby to the pool or you're just looking for more information about swim diapers, we have the answers to all your questions. Read on to learn more about the benefits, uses and unique features of HappyBear swim diapers.

What is a swim diaper?

A swim diaper is specially designed to be worn in the water. Unlike regular diapers, a swim diaper does not absorb water, which prevents the diaper from becoming heavy and sliding down. Swim diapers keep feces in, so your baby can swim safely and cleanly.

Why can't I use regular diapers in the water?

Regular disposable diapers are designed to absorb liquids. If you use a regular diaper in the water, it will absorb water, become heavy and may fall off. This is not only uncomfortable for your baby, but can also be a hygiene problem in swimming pools.

How do swim diapers work?

Swim diapers are made of materials that do not absorb water. They have a tight fit around the legs and waist to keep solids in, while at the same time being comfortable and flexible for your baby to move in.

Are washable swim diapers better than disposable swim diapers?

Washable swim diapers offer several advantages over disposable swim diapers:

  • Durability: Washable swim diapers can be used again and again, saving costs in the long run.
  • Environmentally friendly: By producing less waste, washable swim diapers are a more sustainable choice.
  • Fit and Comfort: Many parents find that washable swim diapers fit better and are more comfortable for their baby.

What makes HappyBear swim diapers different from regular disposable diapers?

Our swim diapers are reusable and designed to grow with your child from approximately 3 months to 3 years, thanks to the adjustable one-size design. Not only are they more environmentally friendly than disposable diapers, but they are also more cost-effective in the long run.

Do swim diapers absorb moisture like normal diapers?

No, both our washable swim diapers and disposable swim diapers are not designed to absorb moisture. This is to prevent them from filling themselves with water while swimming, which would be uncomfortable for your child. Their main function is to retain feces and ensure hygienic swimming conditions.

What is the difference between the swim diapers with Velcro and snaps?

Both swim diapers are adjustable in size, with press studs at the front. The biggest difference is in the closure around the hips. The Velcro swim diapers have a simple Velcro closure and the press stud swim diaper has a sturdy closure with buttons. Handy if your child is a bit older and wants to open the Velcro. The Velcro swim diaper is great and easy to use for young children. The inside of the swim diaper Velcro is made of a soft and comfortable fleece fabric, the other swim diapers have a 'mesh' fabric that is often used in swim trunks.

How do I know which size swim diaper to choose for my child?

Our swim diapers are one size and adjustable, which means they are suitable for children from approximately 3 months to 3 years. You can adjust the size with the press studs and Velcro at the front for a perfect fit.

Do I have to wear a disposable swim diaper under the washable swim diaper from HappyBear?

It is not necessary to wear a disposable swim diaper under our washable swim diapers. Our swim diapers are specially designed to be effective at containing stool on their own without additional layers.

How many swim diapers do I need?

This depends on how often you plan to swim and how quickly you can wash and dry them after swimming. In general, we recommend having at least two swim diapers so that you always have a clean diaper while the other is being washed.


Swim diapers are a must-have for parents who want their baby to enjoy the water without worries. Whether you choose disposable or washable swim diapers , it is important to choose a diaper that fits well and is comfortable for your little one.
