Wetsuit for diaper-wearing toddler

March 2002

Hi - my family is going to Hawaii in May, and have 2 toddlers who are not yet potty trained. I've read in these emails about toddler wetsuits, which provide good sun protection. However, I'm not sure if combining the wetsuit with swim diapers would work? Any advice or experience taking toddlers to the beach would be appreciated! Thank you Leigh

These ''wet suits'' are great. They are a lot thinner than a typical wetsuit and really help block out the sun. No problem with a swim diaper. It is just like a bathing suit. You may find in Hawaii they also have just the wetsuit shirts that you can use with just he swim diaper. Hadley
