A Summer of Fluff – BabyKicks Swim Diaper Review + Giveaway

I was given this diaper in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.

Time to kick of the Summer of Fluff!  (And if you want to know what I mean by that, check out this post)

First up is this adorable little swim diaper by Babykicks. Since 2000, Babykicks has been making comfortable, high quality, and affordable diapers out of natural and organic materials.  Their swim diapers come in a cute unisex print called “Anchors Away” and look adorbs on pinchable little baby legs!

Now, I’m new to swim diapers, so it took me a little while to get used to how different they are from regular cloth diapers.  Regular cloth diapers are all about absorbency, whereas a cloth swim diaper’s primary purpose is to keep the poop out of the pool! When I first got my Babykicks diaper, my initial thought was that they’d forgotten to send me the insert! Until I remembered that I wasn’t dealing with regular fluff…

When buying cloth swim diapers, fit is extremely important since it needs to be able to keep “everything” in (nobody wants to be THAT mom of THAT kid that made every other kid have to take a “break” from water time).

The  Babykicks swim diaper sizing is as follows:

Small:     11-18lbs
Medium: 16-21lbs
Large:    21-35lbs
XLarge:  35-48lbs

My daughter was 17 lbs when we got the diaper, so we ended up going with a small because of how important a secure fit is. The diaper fit great around my daughter’s chubby legs, so I had no worries about anything escaping from that end.  The top, however, had me kind of concerned.  It fit securely, but was a little short and caused a bit of a “plumber’s crack” if I didn’t pull it up really intentionally (which I did in the pic below).  I think we should have gone with a Medium, because I think it’s safe to say that girlfriend is a hefty 17 lbs.

All in all though, we loved the diaper. 

  • It kept poop out of the water.
  • It was super easy to put on.
  • It had a good fit around the legs and tummy (and probably wouldn’t have had a plumbers crack in a medium)
  • It wasn’t too bulky under her swimsuit. 
  • It’s only $13.95…one of the most affordable I’ve seen! You can purchase one here.
