I haven't with my 4 month old. My first daughter went in the pool at 3 months. She didn't mind....They either like it or they don't. I have put my 4 month in the tub for the first time with her big sister and she liked it. She had fun kicking her feet around!

I took my little guy when he was around 2 months or so for the first time and he has always loved it. I have him go in a reusable swim diaper plus a full body swim suit (looks like a baby wet suit) and no shivers since then! Will be great for the summer too as it blocks out UV

i did a trial run with my son about a month ago before signing up for swimming lessons....he mostly just looked around...our parent-tot class starts next week...when we got out of the water we took a quick shower to wash the chlorine off.. :)

We have been going to swimming lessons for the last couple of weeks and my daughter absolutly loves it. The pool we go to has a special pool that is warmer just for little ones so that helps alot!! She stands and sits on the side and i pull her into the water we have dunked her under a couple of times she does back floats front floats.. absolutly loves it. As a lifeguard myself now is the time to introduce swimming as children do not have fears yet and it is great to get them used to swimming and water before the fears can develop, otherwise you will have a very hard time getting your older child into the pool. Hope that helps if there is anything else you want to know (like what the average class entails etc just let me know )

we took kylie to the YMCA to go swimming last week and she LOVED it, i cant wait to go back with her. We brought a little rubber ducky and she put her hands out to chace it around the pool. She was a little aprehensive at first cause the water was colder then her bath but after she got used to it she was all smiles!
