  • Have you tried swim lessons? Like the Mommy and me ones? I don't know about the pools around where you are but we have a pool that has a beach entrance. He would be able to splash in the shallow end and gradually get a little deeper. I don't know how old he is but you could try putting him in swim trunks and letting him play in shallow water and that when he's in the trunks it's ok but not in clothes? Good luck!
