Why Diaperaps® Swim Diaper is the Answer
1. Our Swim Diapers have a unique waterproof lamination between the cotton blend liner and the outer layer of fabric. This contains accidents.
2. Our special design fits snugly around the legs and waist to prevent accidents from leaking. And there’s NO Velcro to come undo in the pool.
3. Our sleek Swim Diaper is lightweight. This makes it more comfortable for baby.
4. These features give parents the confidence they need to enjoy the pool or beach with their babies.
5. Our beautiful prints and bold colors will make baby the best dressed swimmer in the neighborhood.

Swim DiapersEach month, we will feature an organic baby product carried by Baby’s Organic Nursery and give you the story behind the people who create  it.  I felt it would be appropriate to launch this series by  featuring  Diaperaps® Swim Diapers- created by our very own Rachael & Abraham!

Rachael Flug & her husband Abraham, owners of Baby’s Organic Nursery, exemplify an ideal business partnership.  The couple works seamlessly together to fulfill their commitment to find the the healthiest products for babies while serving their loyal customers.  It is their passion to teach parents how easy it is to “do the right thing” for babies and the environment and go through a rigorous process to select the products they carry.  They only offer organic products from companies they know are committed to Fair Trade practices as well as Certified Organic Standards.

Rachael, who oversees product development, has always relied on her sharp instincts to make the best choices for their 3 children (now grown) and now relies on those instincts to create healthy, comfortable and environmentally safe products for babies.   She says her guiding principal to making the right choices is asking herself: “What products would I want to surround my 1rst grandchild with?”

These very instincts combined with their innovation led to the launch of Diaperaps® 26 years ago.   The Diaperaps® Swim Diaper is one of the most popular products from this line and has been been used by swim schools , swim parks and many happy parents for over 15 years.  In Rachael’s own words:

Baby Foot Massage Swim DiaperI introduced my swim diaper in 1993 and today Diaperaps offers the largest selection of infant swim diapers in the world. Most swimming pools now require infants to wear tight fitting covers for hygiene reasons. My swim diapers are the solution to a messy problem and give parents the confidence they need to enjoy the water with their babies.  Our unique construction combines a cotton blend knit fabric laminated to a stretchable waterproof barrier. Only the soft cotton touches baby’s gentle skin. Our special design fits snugly around the legs and waist to prevent leakage and is lightweight and comfortable to allow free movement in the water.

  • My swim diaper has a unique waterproof lamination to contain accidents.
  • My special design fits snugly around the legs and waist to prevent leakage.
  • My sleek style is lightweight and comfortable to allow free movement.
  • My beautiful prints cover baby in style.
  • NO VELCRO to come undone in the pool!

Back in the day (1976) when I had my first home birth, it was way before home births became popular. I used cloth diapers before there was a green revolution. And I even stopped using teflon pans before it was discovered that this coating was toxic. So I have always been just a little bit ahead of the times and the news. This doesn’t mean that I am always right but I have great instincts and I do a lot of research.
I have always tried to have my work and my values support each other. This is why I started the Diaperaps company. I developed my products out of my personal commitment to healthy, comfortable and environmentally safe products for babies. We decided to expand this past year to Baby’s Organic Nursery. So I have practically driven myself crazy trying to find the very best organic products for a baby’s nursery. I have poured over material product safety sheets and asked detailed questions to the technical staff of organic mattress and crib companies. There was a lot to consider and weigh, in choosing the right products. But I did so with this guiding principle , what would I want to surround my first grandchild ?

The Holistic Moms Network Reminds Us that Nursing is Normal

The general consensus among the health community (most pediatricians, The World Health Organization, and the CDC just to name a few) is the benefits of breastfeeding your baby are clear and widely supported in the scientific literature.

Despite this, the Australian media recently reported that young women are reluctant to breastfeed their babies due to fear of public embarrassment. Upon hearing this, members of The Holistic Moms Network, a non-profit organization, launched an initiative encouraging mothers to share photos of themselves breastfeeding in public locations all over the world.

The result is this empowering Nursing Our Future video featured on the organization’s website:


Please help make our culture more accepting of breastfeeding and help mothers find the support and encouragement they need to continue by sharing this video.
