My baby never full submerged himself but his diaper stayed dry for his frequent backs and forths to the waterfront and his shorts were soaked. The diaper pants were a bit odd shaped that's why I said good not excellent.
All the new parents I know put specialty burp cloths on their registries. I ignore that and buy the Gerber Flatfold diapers. First off, they are the right size. Secondly, they absorb EVERYTHING. Thirdly, you throw them in the wash. And, finally, they last forever. I am not sure that new parents have any idea how much laundry they are in for and this makes it all easier. I bought them 24 years ago when my baby was born and I still have them. Yes, they are that tough! I now use them to clean up after the dog. He, too, is a drooler. ;-)
