How old was your child before you took them into a pool? My daughter is 2 months and the pediatrician said the pool is fine (as long as not in sunlight for too long and no sunscreen). I was leaning towards an indoor pool, since it would be warmer. Thoughts?

I can't remember the age, it was very young. She always liked it and learned to hold her breath and dog paddle at age 2. She can now dive and body surf in the ocean at age 7. No fear of water and loves it. I think it's because I introduced her to the pool at a very young age. My son is not a fan of water, I didn't do pools with him at a early age, we moved countries and didn't have a pool. We now have a pool, he was afraid to go into the pool until he turned 3, he spent the longest time watching his sister in he pool before he gained confidence to go in.
