why have the swimming pool decided DS must wear swim shorts over swim nappy?

I'm just curious - usually DS wears swim shorts but after a couple of 'accidents' I switched to buying swim nappies.

This time when going into the pool I was stopped to say DS should wear swim shorts over the nappy, and when asked why he said, because that's the way it is now.

It wasn't rude, he didn't stop us from going into the pool, I just wandered why - since his swim shorts are equally revealing.

surely it is usual to wear a shorts over a swim nappy?

swim nappies arent poo proo so most pools require double bagging

I didn't ever bother with ds. The swim nappy had Nemo on it (Huggies Little Swimmers) or Winnie the Pooh and clearly was a substitute for swimming trunks.

The reusable swim nappies I've seen are also brightly coloured and look like outerwear (iyswim)

It wouldn't make a leak any less likely so I don't really get why they'd want you to double up.

But surely swim shorts are not poo-proof, hence the swim nappy hmm

some swim shorts are more effective at containing baby poo than huggies little swimmers IME

That's the whole point - they look like outerwear and are DEFINITELY more poo proof than swim nappies... IM recent E grin
