  • You can take him or her now. Just make sure to have a hat on the baby, along with sunscreen (don't forget the head- uv rays can go sraight through hats and clothing).

  • I took my son in the pool when he was that young. I just kept his head out. He's almost 1 and loves it now. He goes under and everything.

  • Both of my children are summer babies(June and July) but I waited until the following summer when they were both one. I think their skin is too senstive to the clorine, sun, sunblock, etc. Thats just my opinion though!
