Swim nappies - do they stop wee, or just poo?

Have just had two Motherease swim nappies delivered - have always used the Mothercare ones before.

Motherease have a poo catcher bit in them, but I don't think they'll stop a wee - do any of them stop wees, or is that just wishful thinking on my part? Thinking about it, not sure the Mothercare ones would have done, either!

given how much DS enjoys weeing in the bath, I think a wee in the pool/sea is pretty much a cert, then!

No, they don't catch wee!

DH will testify to this as he was once carrying ds1 on his shoulders on the way back from the beach. After a few minutes he felt a wet warmth spreading around his neck and down over his shoulders. I laughed A LOT grin.

grin - your poor DH!

Back in the sea for a wash, then?

we have a couple (Mothercare, Ladybird/Woolies) that feel like they have a plasticy liner under the towelling inner - they would keep in a poo no problem, but I reckon if (for example) you were carrying a baby wearing one on your hip on your way into the pool, it'd stop a wee actually running down you.

I stand corrected

Not poo, just wee. DH was holding DS before his swim lesson (me in pool, DH watching and holding DS for me). On DH's shirt. DH then had to go back to the office for the remainder of the day in said shirt grin!
