I'm wanting to take Abby swimming at our apartment's pool.  I got the swimsuit and a little boat with a cover over it.  Now the problem.  I was looking at the lil swimmers and the small says 16lbs and up.  Ok, Abby is 5 mths. old, but she only weighs 12lbs.  I need to know from ya'll if the swimmers are gonna be to big or what ya'll use.  Please help cause I have no idea!!!!!!!

    I would use them because a diaper sucks when it is soaking wet, they fall apart and all these little balls of gel come out of them.  I think that it is ok if it is a little big on her.

    try the little swimmer on her before you to the pool, if they gap anywhere on her don't use them. Don't use regular diapers on her. This can get her and everyone else sick. If you can they make swim suits with diapers already built in. hope this helped!

    They should be totally fine. They seem a little small anyway...atleast that's my experience. But look at it this way, if they try to blame your daughter for peeing in the pool, you can atleast say that you have a little swimmer on her, so it's not your daughter...hehe

    my daughter is 8mos old, 18lbs, and I tell you, she's in small and they seem big on her.  Chances are, her swim suit will hold it on, so I wouldn't worry about it.  Should be fine

    in my experience they are actually small, my daughter uses the same ones, she weighs 23 pounds, but they seem too small for her, even though they say up to 34 pounds, they should be fine on your daughter, and the others are right about not using a diaper, hope this helps

    the little swimmers seem to run smaller than that for my babies. they are always really tight. i think you should be ok.
