What is your opinions on taking our babies this little into public swimming pools? Wyatt is only 9 weeks, but it's so hot here, I would love to take him over to our apartments swimming pool. I asked my Pedi about it and he said it was fine, but I'm still not sure about that one. What do you guys think?
Once baby is two months old I would feel comfortable dipping him in for a bit as long as it wasnt too cold. I grew up with a pool in the backyard so I was in at a very young age. May alter my opinion on it from others?
Yeah I could do a little blow up pool- just didn't want to spend the money and effort of blowing it up and putting it down each time if I didn't have to. Also, don't really know where I would set it up in my apartment complex. Lol, in my parking space??
We went to Schlitterbahn when Avery was 6 weeks. She didn't spend a ton of time in the water obviously, but I did sit withher in it in her diaper and bathing suit for 5 -10 minutes a couple of times. We stayed in a corner at the edge of the water away from everyone and she liked it. Well really she slept through most of it, but she is still alive so couldn't have done too much damage.
I'm taking Natalie and Caroline swimming tomorrow at my aunt & uncle's house. They have a salt water pool. I'm not sure if Caroline will be getting in or not. mostly because they don't make swim diapers her size and I'm worried about her leaving a funky present in the pool.
*thinks markswife and ashj_1218 are the same person...*
Hilarious!! Today will be my first experience with a saltwater pool. I thought my aunt & uncle were crazy when they said they were making the switch from chlorine. It's going to be quite a surprise to Natalie I am sure. I'm thinking I should bring margaritas instead of beer for my poolside beverage. Too bad it doesn't come with waves.
We are taking Koa in a salt water pool on the 4th although there's a pool party going on this saturday too (chlorine pool).
Our friends with the salt water pool have lots of shade, a little waterfall cave, and rock places to sit and drink/hang out on. the shallow end is nice too... everyone gets those plastic outdoor chairs and just sits on those too. If he can lean right, I'll put Koa in a plastic floatie thing. I did that with DD and just laid 2 towels down to block the holes in the float, and propped her up. She liked it. We won't be keeping him in longer than 5-10 minutes at a time though.
