Nappy Policy

At Waterlife Swim School we require each child under the age of 2 years to wear a Happy Nappy whilst swimming.

The passing of solids (or semi-solids) into the water can create a serious risk of an infection called Cryptosporidium being passed into the water. Should a movement occur and leaks into the swimming pool, we must cancel classes, and drain, clean, re-fill and re-heat the water, usually a 24 hourNappy1 turn around.

If you arrive at your class without a Happy Nappy you may not be able to swim.

The Happy Nappy is made from neoprene material and comes in a variety of colours and sizes. They start from:

X small – birth to 2 months (3-4kg)

Nappy2XX large – toddler (16kg+)

Prices start from around £9.99 from www.splashabout.com

A re-usable soft cotton wrap and biodegradable liner from www.splashabout.com or disposable swim nappy from chemists and supermarkets are worn underneath as a liner for ease of cleaning.
