My dd will be 10 weeks this Saturday and Friday we wanted to go to a local amusement park. Is it okay to bring my dd in a public pool at such a young age?

Absolutely. Just don't be surprised if she doesn't want to be put down at all.

Absolutely, just make sure there is shade for her to keep cool in. My babies usually just napped in their stroller next to me while I watched my other kids swim. :-) Have fun!

My dd was a summer baby, so we really didn't get her in a pool until the following year.

I wouldn't be to worried, as long as she stays in a shaded area and stays cool:)

I wouldn't. Primarily because there is just SO MUCH chemicals in the water. Other than that, if the chemicals aren't an issue for you, I don't see why not.

I would think so just keep her cool and in the shade

As long as there's plenty of shade for the baby, it should be fine.  Just don't expect her to like it! We introduced DD to a pool at 3 months and she was definitely not happy about it the first timeQ!
