  • 2018 Bronze Best Swimming Product
Mother & Baby 2018 Bronze Award Winner

At a glance:

Unlike other disposable swimming nappies on the market, these won’t bulk up when wet, so your baby will be comfier in the pool, with little chance of leakages. Our panel of mum testers loved the cute designs and found them true to size.

What they say:

“Unlike disposable nappies, Huggies® Little Swimmers® do not swell on contact with water, allowing your little one freedom of movement to splash around and have a great time.”

Tested by mum Harriet Ainsworth for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Swimming is always something that I like to do with my children, but it's a hassle getting them in and out of the pool. These nappies are easy to use and reliable - a win-win! They don't bulk up when wet like everyday nappies do, but still form a tight seal around the legs and waist so there's no chance of leakage

How did the product make your life easier?

The Huggies Little Swimmers can be put on either like a normal nappy, where you undo and do up each side, or you can pull them up like you would do with pants. It's great to have both options, as we all know children can be wriggly little things. The nappies seem to be a nice fit, and look comfy and allow the children to move freely

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes I would – the nappies are reliable and well designed, and the fun design on them is nice and child friendly.

What changes would you make to the product?

I guess that the price is my main issue; they do seem rather expensive for what they are. It might be nice to have the option of a 'value' range as paying for pool entry or swimming lessons is expensive enough as it is. Also, neither I nor my friends could work out which side was the front!

Tested by mum Donna Adams for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would only recommend this product for swimming pool use and not beach use, as they did leak pretty quickly after entering the water. The design is nice with the different characters, though I would like to see a wider choice. They are very easy to put on and take off being pull-ups, and my daughter seemed to be very comfortable in them. They don't take up much room in your swim bag or beach bag as they are quite thin, but this may be the reason they leak.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product didn't really make my life easier. It was great for in the water, but I would say it's not all that different to just using a normal nappy, only a little lighter when wet. Before entering the water these swimmers leak very badly. We only had it on for five minutes, ready to go to the beach, and the nappy leaked all through to her clothes. That said, the design and colour of the swimmers are nice, with the Finding Nemo characters on them and the price is also very reasonable. My little girl seemed very comfortable in the swimmers and they aren’t bulky at all. I like the fact that these are pull-ups, making it much easier to put on and take off, especially when they are wet.

Would you choose this product to win?

I think this product should win only based on swimming pool use. They are a very good design to look at with the characters on the front and back. They are soft on the skin, not too rough on the sides, and are very easy to put on and take off, even when wet. I would say they are good value for money, but I would suggest being able to buy smaller packs.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would only change the way they absorbed without being submerged in water, as the nappy leaked five minutes after putting it on. I would like to be able to purchase smaller packs, as children grow quickly, so you probably wouldn't use the whole pack by the time your child needs to go up a size. I would also like to see different characters rather than just Nemo.

The instructions for fitting are clear and simple - you can't really get them wrong, and there is also a cute little bow to show the front and back. You can easily fit the nappies into a changing bag or holiday bag, the same size as normal nappies. This product is great when swimming with a baby or toddler. I personally don't like the neoprene nappies or suits, so to be able to put this on my son and then put his shorts on is very helpful and makes swimming so quick and easy. I would definitely recommend them, and have even given some to a couple of mum friends to try.

How did this product make your life easier?

I find the product really easy to use, as it’s just like a pull up nappy. I also find the quick tear sides very handy after swimming, as I don't have to worry about laying him down and can just tear them and get him showered. It has a nice design, so I don't have to worry about swimmers when we are outside at home, as they look cute worn on their own.

Would you choose this product to win?

I think this product should win, because I haven't seen many alternatives. I personally don't like the neoprene nappies and I love the convenience of these ones. I can just put them in the changing bag and we can go swimming. I think the designs make them stand out, as it distinguishes them from more ‘normal’ nappies. And kids love them!

What changes would you make to this product?

I don't really think there is anything I would change about the product. It is nice and simple to use and also very efficient, as we had no leaks or problems in that respect. If I really had to criticise, I would say that the price is possibly a little high for what you are getting.

Tested by mum Eloise Allum for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would definitely recommend the Huggies Little Swimmers to a friend or fellow mum, as they are easy to put on and fit true to size, they are convenient to carry around (as they are just like an ordinary nappy), and we never had any problems with leakages. They have a very cute design on the nappy, and the price you pay is very good for the pack size.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product made my life easier as they are easy to carry around in or out of the bag. I found it quick and easy to put on my baby where as sometimes I tend to find myself faffing around trying to find the right side. They fit was true to size, and didn’t leave any marks. She seemed to be quite comfortable wearing the nappy!

Would you choose this product to win?

I would these over any other swimming nappy, as I found they are the truest fit to size nappy out there. They are easy to carry around, either in a swimming bag, baby bag or just a small bag. They didn’t look big and bulky whilst being worn, and they have a very cute design on the swimming nappy.

What changes would you make to this product?

If there were one thing that I could change about them, it would be the tags that stick to the front of the nappy. I was a little concerned when I first put the nappy on, as I didn’t think it was going to stay on whilst swimming. There just didn’t seem to be much stickiness to the actual flap.
