My son Jamison BLue is 2 months old and my parents want to know if he can swim in their salt water pool! I was thinking as long as the temp is ok, i keep water away from his ears and he is not directly in the sun that it might be ok for 10 min or so at a time!! Any advice would be awesome!!

Thanks !

Careful with baby sunscreen though. You should really consult your doc before applying to babies younger than 6 months/20lbs.

I agree just make sure he has on baby sunscreen and a good hat to cover his face. My daughter was just a little older then your boy when we took her swimming the first time, started lessons at 5 months. They will be a bit scared at first but then most kids usually love it, always rinse him off afterwards and put lotion on

I don't see why he can't swim in your parents' pool. Just make sure he is well covered above the water, has a hat on and that you moisturize his skin really well afterward. Salt water is probably better than any other chemicals in a pool and our water at home is typically treated with some kind of chemical as well, so they are already exposed to certain things regardless.

As long as he's protected from the sun... not a problem. Some babies here are in the ocean at just a couple of weeks old. :)
