I set my daughters baby pool up around 8 months.   As long as you are with her and she enjoys the water I don't see any problem with it

1 is awesome. They get too big and grow up so fast. Your dh is too conservative. You are not gonna leave her alone.

At 1, you need to be there all the time with her, but it's no big deal. Another option is to get a large laundry/dishwashing tub instead, since a 1yo can sit in that and splash around, play with cups, etc, and you'll never be tempted to leave it sitting out, full of water all day, because it fills in seconds. When she gets too big for it, use it to store toys, or to soak your feet.

well i will not leaver her alone in or around it she never goes outside without me there and i got little fence to put around it..but i really appreciate ur idea but he went a head and bought one because we will have his other child this summer and she is 4 so it will be big enough for both of them
