  • I only took my kids once. They HATED it lol. They were just under a year. We're gonna try again this summer, so they'll be 2. But there are TONS of little babies in those mom/baby classes. I think those are great.

  • He was born in November, but we took him shortly after the pool opened in the spring, so he was maybe 6 months? He's 13 months and he LOVES water - baths, pool, and and the ocean. Even at 6 months he was splashing around and enjoying it.

  • Ethan will be a year when he goes for the first time. He could have last summer but he didn't like his baths so I figured it would feel the same to him to be in the pool so we waited.

  • My oldest DD was born in April at the end of April so I think she was 6 weeks she didn't know what to think at first until she got splashed then she didn't like it but she didn't like baths either lol.

    My second was born in January so she didn't go the first time until she was more like 5 or 6 months I think and it was a sprinkler for babies and she loved it she loved water and still does at 2
