7 Mo Baby Swimming

Keli - February 2

We belong to a gym. They have an indoor pool. They have a kiddie area that I could sit and hold the baby in the water, and let my 9 yr old swim. Is it too soon? She has eczema, will the chlorine irritate her skin? Has anyone taken their babies to the pool yet ? If so, how did they like it ? My baby loves the bath, so I am sure she will love the pool, and being around all the kids.

Well, when my little cousin was 7 months old, I took her into my swimming pool. Actually, my dd will be 8 months when we open our pool this year, and I plan on taking her in. My ds would go in when he was 7 months too. I do remember my ds freaking out when he got splashed though. My cousin loved it! I cant wait to take dd in:-) About the eczema, I honestly don't know. It should be fun! You have to let us know how it goes too!

We live in Florida so my baby was swimming when she was 5-6 months old. I have niece that had eczema but i dont think swimming negatively affected her. Most babies love it! Get them used to the water before they are old enough to become afraid of it.

I took my son in the water at 3 months! I have a pool at my house, I just made sure the water was warm enough, atleast around 80. He loved it and would kick his feet like he was swimmimg
