Award-Winning Children's book — Happy Nappy DUO

Happy Nappy DUO

The Happy Nappy DUO, is the most technically advanced swim diaper on the market, developed by UK baby and children’s swimwear specialists Splash About.

The Happy Nappy DUO is a reusable 2-in-1 swim diaper; it effectively contains unwelcome accidents and is scientifically proven to destroy any fecal bacteria, including E.coli & Cryptosporidium which chlorine alone cannot kill, and once ingested in water are responsible for nasty tummy bugs and diarrhea.

Made from durable neoprene the DUO has snug, specialist fabric waist and thigh ribbing & a fixed gusset to prevent gaping, ensuring solids are contained long enough for you to exit the pool. Integrated inside the DUO is an innovative Silver Lining. Naturally anti-bacterial silver is soothing on baby skin but importantly it destroys any fecal bacteria present in the diaper, rendering it harmless. So now when it mixes with water or urine & seeps into the pool, it’s sterile, meaning cleaner water for all swimmers.

Available in sizes from birth to 3 years in 10 beautiful designs, the Happy Nappy DUO is the only swim diaper a baby needs for a stress-free visit to the pool and is an eco-friendly alternative to disposable swim diapers.
