Mom With Kids After Run

    My daughter is 11 years old and has a developmental disability. She is not potty trained yet. I would like to be able for her to go swimming on our disney trip but the "Little Swimmers" wet diapers/pants do not fit her anymore. Any ideas?

    Hi, Claudine!  There are several options for you out there! 

    My sister works with children of all ages with developmental disabilities, and one place she recommends is kiefer.com.  If you click on the link at the top of the page that says Fitness and Therapy, you'll find a link for personal products.  My sister has used with great success the adult and youth swim diapers.  They look pricey, but they are completely washable and reusable.  The youth size accommodates children up to 110 pounds.

    Another option is to check out mypoolpal.com.  They have disposable swim diapers designed for older children and adults with special needs.  The youth sizes there will fit kids up to 140 pounds before you move into adult sizes.

    I hope your little princess has an absolutely wonderful vacation!
