I am going on vacation with my little one and was wondering if anyone has taken their baby into a swimming pool. Is that okay? Is the chlorine too much for them?

Hannah loves the pool. She objects to the cold at first, and then really objects when I dunk her under :-) but she loves it after a bit of a cuddle :)

Mason looooved the water, we did make sure to take a bath fairly quick afterward. We so look forward to summer so he can swim again!

No problem! I've only taken Zach swimming once so far because it's winter here and the indoor pools are expensive - and I can't take a baby and a toddler by myself - but he loved it! Both my boys seem to love the water, which I'm so happy about!

I take my son swimming in our own pool, but He always crying on the first couple minutes before He actually enjoy it. It always makes me panic, the first couple minutes. Anyone experience the same? What could be the cause? Is the water too cold? Now I only take him swimming on a very hot day, which is became rare now since Its rainy season here in Indonesia... :(

We took Hadlie swimming over Christmas so she was about 3 1/2 months. She starts swimming lessons March 3 (the day before she turns 6 months.) She did just fine and we made sure and gave her a bath right after so the chlorine wasn't on her skin long.

I haven't taken Abby swimming yet, mainly because she is a fall baby and it's winter here and cold. But I did take Noah when he was only a few months old. (He was a spring baby.) It didn't hurt him at all. Just make sure you give your baby a bath and put lots of lotion on afterwards.

i started taking my son to the pool every week since he was three months (would have went earlier but i couldn't buy swim diapers that were small enough until then). he LOVES it and cries when i take him out. have fun!!!

Kira has been swimming since 8 weeks old. We have our own pool and she went in the resort pool in Fiji with no ill effects. She loves the water. Have a good holiday!
