When did you start to take you baby in the public pool?
I have thought about bringing mine, he is 7 months but im still not sure if it would be ok. (All the icky germs that are in there and the chlorine)

alot of kids start swimming classes at about 6 months and i think it will build up their immune system and chlorine shouldnt be a problem.

My son was about that old when i first took him to the pool. He loved it and he didn't get sick. He just kicked his legs, waved his arms and splashed. Its your choice tho.

I know no babies under one should be in a untreated body of water like lakes or ocean until over a year.. don't know about pools. but i think they are pretty good to go. Ask your Pediatrician.
