Sooo, you put you little cutie in the tub, wash them up nice and clean and give them a little play time. You are sitting on the toilet, reading your magazine when you get this funny feeling….something is wrong. You peer over the side of the bathtub and there it is….a FLOATER! Yep – if you are the parent of a bathtub pooper, you know the feeling. Your nice clean child is now sitting in his/her own soup of feces….lovely!
I have to admit that this is not a story of my own experience. I recently saw an acquaintence of mine on Facebook complaining that one if her TWINS does this. As if one child sitting in their own poop soup isn’t bad enough, having to re-wash two toddlers. I tried not to laugh, because I actually hate giving baths and to have to re-wash and all that would seriously push me over the edge!
One of her friends suggested a swim diaper and a conversation ensued about them and how expensive they are and for what? The inside of a cheap disposable diaper! I don’t know how many times I have preached to my non-cloth friends about how great cloth swim diapers are and how much money they can save. One swim diaper that can be washed countless times costs about the same (if not less) than a package of swim diapers and can be used for years and on multiple children. So in this colder season where swimming diapers are not really on our minds, I thought I would mention this alternative use and maybe get a chuckle or two in the process!
