Add swim diapers to the list of issues that can get turned into a federal case.
A Florida family is suing their condo board over what they say is a rule barring children from using the community pool while wearing swim diapers.
Swim diapers are a snug-fitting lightweight alternative to disposable or cloth diapers, which become heavy like anchors when wet.
According to the website SwimOutlet.com, swim diapers are “meant to be used only in the pool or ocean to make sure that your little one’s bum is covered and contained.”
But if banning them in a community pool prevents a child from using that pool, swim diapers can also become a symbol of the fight against discrimination.
