Product Details

Happy Nappy Overview

The famous award winning Happy Nappy by Splash About is the most reliable swim nappy and baby swimwear in the world. Insisted upon by swim schools including water babies swim school lessons and by pool owners worldwide. The Happy Nappy swim nappies gives a leak free swim and helps protect other babies and swimmers from faecal leaks into the water.

The Happy Nappy swim nappies offer superior poo containment compared to disposable swim nappies.  Little accidents will be a thing of the past and no need to use a disposable swim nappy again once you have your neoprene nappy!

Happy Nappy is the best reusable neoprene swim nappy, other brands have tried to copy but the Happy Nappy is the original design and still the best.

Why is the Splash About Happy Nappy the best?

The super soft neoprene Happy Nappy is shaped into two back pieces, which cup the baby’s bottom. These are held securely in place by a gusset, whilst specialist waist and leg fabric grips comfortably yet snugly to your child’s body. Ensuring that no matter how they move and twist in the water there is gaping. The front rib of the Happy Nappy is designed to roll gently down under the tummy button to form a seal against the neoprene. The Happy Nappy fits snugly at the legs giving a leak proof leg.

Splash About swim nappy is an ergonomically form fitting nappy to be secure yet comfortable no matter how hard they play and kick in the water. There is a reason UK swim schools ask for the famous Happy Nappy!

The Happy Nappy is unique, and in my opinion the best swim nappy ON THE MARKET because of the Happy Nappy ribbing around the thighs and tummy which will contain both solids or semi solids.  This is a very simple yet effective design, with no ties,Velcro,or elastic necessary, the Happy Nappy simply pulls on and off. This is the ONLY SWIM NAPPY I HAVE COMPLETE FAITH IN no poo is escaping this one!

 

Sizing

Size Age Waist Thigh
Small 0-3 months 34-41cm 17-22cm
Medium 3-6 months 37-44cm 19-24cm
Large 6-12 months 40-47cm 22-28cm
XL
1-2 years
42-50cm 24-31cm
XXL 2-3 years 44-52cm 26-33cm

 

Please note that the Happy Nappy is a snug fit, so if in doubt we would suggest going for the next size up. Baby normally needs to use them for  2 years + until they are reliably potty trained.

If you need a bigger size than on the table please visit the Splash About Splash Jammers which are available from toddlers right up to adult sizes.

How do I use the Splash About Happy Nappy System?

The 3 Parts of the Splash About Happy Nappy System:

  • Outer Layer Happy Nappy - is the Happy Nappy. The Happy nappy is made of 1mm supple, stretchy neoprene and finished with super soft, snug fitting, deep bands of rib fabric with a high rubber content. The Happy Nappy can be used on its own but for complete confidence and ease of cleaning up 'little accidents', use with the inner wrap (described below). The Happy Nappy is the main barrier against leaks.
  • Inner Happy Nappy Wrap - Is a lovely soft adjustable wrap made of traditional swimwear material. The nappy wrap is your first layer baby wears to protect against leaks and holds the paper liner secure inside. The wrap IS NOT suitable for baby to wear on its own, most baby swimming schools insist on the use of this layer as well.

      - Alternatively you can still use a disposable swim nappy underneath the Happy Nappy however we would encourage you to avoid the use of disposable swim nappies as they can absorb too much water from the swimming pool plus have environmental and financial impacts. The cost of disposable swim nappies soon mounts up if you take baby swimming regularly.

  • Optional Paper Liner -This is placed inside the inner wrap and is used to make removing solids easier. Bambinex Paper Liners are the only paper liners I stock which are suitable for use with a swim nappy.

 

After use simply rinse. If required the Happy Nappy reusable neoprene swim nappy can be washed in the washing machine as well.

I purchased this to go over the splash about inner. I also use it over disposable swim nappies. It is a snug fit and I’m glad I read the reviews and ordered the larger size for my 5 month old. He’s tall, has chunky thighs but a slim waist and there are no gaps with the nappy. We’ve had no leaks, which makes it a success.

Hard to put
Rating:
10 April 2017  | 

I purchased this item because it was quite cheap, but I do not know if it will work quite well. My daughter used it for the first time a few days ago to go to the swimming pool, and this swim nappy was very hard to put on her (almost as hard as a sailing suit). The faeces (?) will mostly stay in it, but I am not sure about the urine : there is not any absorbing "fabric" in it.

 
Was this helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Response:

swim nappies don't hold urine in as the cholorine in the pool is there to neutralise it. The concern is about poo getting into the water and these are snug to make sure it doesnt escape.

They where very small for my boy, he leaked poo, luckily he was in towel in my mums hands. I think the sizing is way off. We only used them once and purchased another make.

 
Was this helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Response:

sorry you found the sizing off for your child we've never had this feedback in the 10 years we've been stocking them. They are designed to be very snug so as to keep everything inside. Splash About happy nappy is the approved brand for UK swimming pools as it conforms to the new British swimming pool standards.


Great!

We haven't had any poos to the put the nappy to the test, but it's great otherwise! It has also survived an accidental 60 degree wash (wouldn't recommend) and still works great. Only issue is that the sizing comes up small. My 22lb 5mo is in the XXL - not sure what we'll do when he grows out of it...

Bought a medium size for my 12 week old in hope he would grow into it but was far too big. Have now purchased the smaller size which works well - a bit tricky to get on but I guess that is necessary to ensure no leaking!!

Swim with confidence
Rating:
21 August 2015  | 

My little one loves to swim and this is a great product to allow us to take to the water with confidence. It is difficult to get on, but well worth the effort and seems to be comfortable and secure. My only gripe is that there is no adjustment in these nappies, which is a necessity to prevent unwanted leakages but my son doesn't quite conform to the standard size. The result is a slight balloon effect around the midriff - thankfully he doesn't care about appearances just yet!

This is required by my daughter's swim school. Fits snugly and a really pretty print (Tutti fruiti). Thankfully it's containment ability hasn't been tested yet, but I'm confident it will perform when inevitably it eventually will be.
If I have one complaint it is that it can be a bit of a job to get it on a wiggly baby, however this is also the aspect that prevents leaks!

I ordered this for the summer as she was growing out of her medium happy nappy but the xl seems much bigger and she's not grown into it yet. Otherwise I've always loved using happy nappies, I don't know why anyone would youse disposable swim nappies as I just rinse it and hang it with her swimming costume
