Disposable swim diapers are a blessing and a curse. They keep a wee one's bum from appearing hugely swollen after a dip in the pool, which is delightful. They do, however, have their faults.

Yesterday morning my daughter went number two in her swim britches. My husband had to figure out a way to remove the pull-up style bottoms without making a complete mess. He discovered a trick — the sides tear pretty easily. So instead of patiently wrestling your poo drenched child, just tug a tad on the sides and grab the diaper in one fell swoop.
