I just had a quick suggestion and would like to hear comments from anyone else who may have tried this.

I was in Target yesterday and found swim diapers to be on clearance because it was the end of summer.

Well, being in Southern California I figured I might as well get a bunch since they were marked down from $6.99 to only $1.50!!

I picked up a bunch, twelve in total!! I figured for that price, my baby can wear a different swim diaper every time!

Well, then last night it hit me, I put one on over lil CJ's prefold to wear at night... it worked!

Has anyone else tried this??? Has it worked in the long run??? (I only used it last night so far)

Also, if this works I would suggest all of you who are trying to save on $$$ to pick some up, as I said my Target had them marked down to $1.50!

I got some barney print, gingham print, neon, polka dots, and tropical prints... They are so cute!!!

Most of the swim diapers are made of spandex type material with a waterproof liner, and three are just cotton on the outside with a waterproof liner.

Oh, if your local Target doesn't have them, I also found some inexpensive Swimways Reusable Swim Diapers on Amazon!

Thanks to Veronica for this Frugal Baby Tip!
