Do your babies like the water? Have they gone "swimming"?

J has "swimming lessons" every Friday, he LOVES the water, and I LOVE the place.

Share a water pic!

My pedi said to avoid chlorinated pools until 6 months - not to mention, I'd be bonkers to try to go to a public pool with a 3 month old, a dev delayed 4 year old that can't hear in the pool, and a 5 year old that can't swim yet...all by myself! Andrew seriously loves the tub though, so once the big boys go back to school I definitely plan on hitting the pool with just him.

Yeah that would be difficult! Haha. I have heard differing opinions on that but the class he is in is specifically for babies under 6 months and my friend also took his kids there. It is a tiny pool, kept around 90, and they have this little area after they get out where you can shower them in clean water right away, plus the class is <30 mins.

Anden loves water! I've been to the pool when hubby can come so he can chase the older two. Our local pool is kind of crummy and way too cold so we go when we're out of town.

Yeah, that would be totally different if they had a specific pool for it, Kelsey! We don't have any places that offer <6mo swim, it's all in the big pools that the general public use, and that are colder. There is a 6m-18m infant class that I may do, I'm stilld eciding if I want to do a class or if I just want to take him myself whenever.

Yeah, another great thing about this place is that <6M classes, once a week, is FREE! They try to get you hooked to pay for the next level class, and they totally have! Lol

Oh man!! I wish, I'd totally do free classes. The 6m+ ones are like $50 for the session, but I haven't calculated out the cost of going swimming that many times on our own vs doing the class. Eric still hates to get his face in the water (which is why he isn't swimming - every time we've tried classes, it's been a huge block in the road), and Danny...well, swimming has been low on the list of things to teach him, plus I have NO idea how to do it when he can't hear me. I am determined to have Andrew better in the water as a younger age!

In fl it is imperative for them to learn how to swim. Mine are all waterbugs. I can handle two toddlers, but haven't taken the new baby in yet. I wait til 3 mos or so, depending when in the year they are born. Petra loves her bath though. So, she will likely follow everyone else's footsteps and be a waterbug too.
