  • anytime after 6 months they can be in a pool. if they are younger they can still sit in a baby pool though, just without the chlorine, maybe a blow up one at your house.

  • I had my son at the pool six weeks after birth. We had baby swimming lessons with ohbaby fitness. It was the greatest mommy and me class ever.

  • My dd is 8 months and has a baby tube....she loves it! Idont know i there is any specific age, but just make sure they can be covered, by a hat or a awning over the tube. and plenty of sunblock!

  • We took our son when he was 2 months old. He didn't really like it, but we tried :) He's now 13 months and likes to sit in his blue plastic pool in the backyard and play with his toys.
