The sun is shining. Diapers are fluttering on the line. Birds are sweetly chirping in the rustling leaves of the trees. You get the picture....spring is here! And what does that mean? Summer is just around the corner! Ahhh...summer...my favorite time of year. Give me 100 degree weather, some sunglasses, Episencial sunscreen and a pool to play in.
And what does EVERY baby (and toddler) need in the pool? Why, a swim diaper, of course...something to catch those little accidents that are bound to happen with your little one. Just for fun, I checked out Target.com to check out the price of "Little Swimmers". They are $8.99 for 12 if you are lucky enough to need a small and $8.99 for 10 if you need a large. That's almost a dollar a diaper! They can't be reused, and if your kids are anything like mine, you will be going through at least 2 diapers when you are at the pool. We intend to go swimming a lot, so we would likely go through 8-10 swim diaper changes in a week. To be conservative, I'll say we'll go through 5 a week over a 12 week period (not counting swimming lessons in the fall and spring), I would spend almost $50 this summer on swim diapers.
Luckily, I have my Bonfire Red AppleCheeks swim diaper that Paige used last year. Asher can wear it this year. I'll spare him the Pink Flowers Imse Vimse and buy him a "manly" color this year...maybe the Black Lizard so he can look really tough.
I have just saved $30 for 12 weeks of summer. (And in reality, I'm probably saving closer to $80 since we swim so often.) Yay, me! And you can save, too. Enter to win an Imse Vimse swim diaper of your choice. And the best news - even if you don't win, you can buy a reusable swim diaper this year and you still come out a winner. Happy swimming!
