Wet diapers are one of those unknowns you face when you go into the water with your baby for the first time. I didn't know anything about it and the truth is that I was quite afraid of having an "accident" on the beach or in the pool.
Although at the beginning I used disposable diapers, I have ended up using reusable ones, so I have made an interesting journey between different types and brands, and I have found important differences between them, mainly if we compare disposables with reusable ones.
What is the difference between a water diaper and a normal one?
I must confess that at first I did not know if there was a difference between one or the other, but they do exist: the main one is that the water diaper, unlike the normal ones, does not absorb anything (imagine how it would swell and what a diaper would weigh normal when putting it in the water), although they do retain the baby's poop.
The second main one is that the closures (at least the disposable ones) have a texture that resembles Velcro to prevent the water from taking them off.
The best disposable diapers
Disposable diapers have advantages such as not having to wash them, they fit the baby's body quite well, and they are quite soft both inside and out. Being disposable, they are very practical; are used and discarded.
Huggies Little Swimmers
These are the best selling disposable diapers on Amazon. They offer protection to prevent small accidents in the water and I can attest that they work perfectly because we never had one in the time we used them. They don't swell, they have fun Disney designs and an easy opening system on the sides. They are available in sizes 2-3 (3-8kg), 3-4 (7-15kg) and 5-6 (12-18kg).
Dodot Splashers Disposable Swim Diaper
Huggies Little Swimmers Disposable Swimsuit Diaper Size 3-4 (7-15 Kg) - 20 units
They are quite similar to the previous ones in terms of quality, but physically they are more like swimsuits that are not disposable. They are available in sizes 3-4 (6-11kg) and 4-5 (9-15kg).
Dodot Splashers Disposable Swim Diapers, Non-Swelling and Easy to Remove, Size 4, 9-15 kg - 11 Units
These diapers incorporate an elastic waist that offers a perfect fit to the baby's body and great comfort. They have anti-escape barriers that offer the baby maximum protection (and parents great peace of mind), and a side opening by tearing makes it ideal for great comfort. Their design is similar to a children's swimsuit with marine animals and they are available in sizes M (9-15kg) and L (+15kg).

The best reusable diapers
Obviously, reusable diapers have the advantage that they help us save money by not having to buy them. From my experience I tell you that they are very comfortable, and although you have to wash them, unless the baby defecates, you don't even notice it because you can put them in the washing machine. It is also a great small gesture to make parenting a little more sustainable with the planet.
Diaper Swimsuit Bambino Mío
It is the first reusable diaper that I used and with which I have repeated every summer because it seems unbeatable. Both the inside and the outside are made of non-waterproof polyester, so it's very soft on baby's delicate skin.
