We're going swimming at my dad's house today. She's five months old and today will be her first experience in the pool. She HATES bathtime, I think because she hates having water anywhere hear her face. Do you think there's a chance she'll like the pool even though she hates the bath?Answer Question
Yeah. She might like the pool. For my kids temperature is the biggest factor. If the pool is cold, none of my kids like getting in it. For my kids, I introduce them slowly. I'll carry them in and get them wet very slowly from the feet up.
She may fuss a little.... but try to wait it out for a minute and see if she calms down and gets used to the water.Chances are, it will feel a little chilly to her at first. If she doesn't calm down in the pool within a few monutes (with you holding her) then I would take her out and try again later.
