Michael Phelps announced today that he and his family will be partnering with Huggies Little Swimmers while they are #Trainingfor2032. The campaign centers around encouraging young children to enjoy fun and safe water play, all with Huggies Little Swimmers.

In a press conference held by Phelps, Boomer, and his wife, Nicole, Phelps explained,

“Some of the best memories of my life have been in the water – and none more special than the days I spend swimming with Boomer. I’m not teaching Boomer to master the butterfly just yet, but #Trainingfor2032 includes safe water play that helps build comfort and confidence in the water. I’m partnering with Huggies Little Swimmers because I want all babies to be the best swimmers they can be.”

Giusy Buonfantino, president of Kimberly-Clark Baby and Child Care North America, added,

“Huggies is excited to be partnering with the Phelps family to offer fun ways for parents to help their babies thrive in the water. Huggies Little Swimmers swimpants are designed specifically for the water so they don’t swell, and feature easy open sides for an adjustable fit so babies can focus on fun.”

    This disappoints me. The Little Swimmers Diapers are so wasteful. It is much better for a family’s budget and for our planet to purchase 2-4 non-disposable swim diapers and a wet bag. If the child has an accident, you can pretty easily clean the non-disposable swim diaper (they are plastic lined) and then toss it in the wet bag and launder it at home. Keep the spares in the swim bag for a quick return to the pool. I have raised 4 children and have countless hours in/at the pool with them as an instructor and coach. I only remember 2 x that I felt it was really messy, but it’s no worse than a messy diaper change. Please do not buy disposable swim diapers.
