Ladies, please help. My daughter is scared of pool - she cried so hard on Saturday she threw and we barely got her feet wet. We did have a hard time transitioning to big tub, it took her a while to get used to the size, but she never cried as much as she did on Saturday. Suggestions on how to deal and teach her are greatly appreciated.

Ummm...I took my son in the pool for the first time this year a few weeks ago. I just held him really close to me. It might have helped that there was another baby in the pool with him.



Ofcourse...since he seems a little fearless around the water, he had no problem running chest deep into the lake on Father's Day.



Maybe you could get a little pool and start there? But I do know the main thing is like her set the pace. You don't want to scare her.



Good luck...wish I had better advice.
