  • Maybe, I'm not aginst it, but Idk if I'm for it. If I did I would be prepared and make sure my baby was not in any direct sunlight and make sure it wasn't to hot out.

  • My little girl was born in June but, by the end of summer I was letting her in the pool, letting her splash her little feet in the water. I was very careful to keep her out of the sun. She loved the water as a baby.
