How many of you take your LO's to the pool or a swim lesson? Any funny experiences or pictures you'd like to share?

We live in a small town - I think your city is MUCH bigger....so we don't have access to an indoor pool. Our public pool where kids take lessons is outdoor.

Not now since it's way too cold here! I am not a fan of swin lessons. We have always taught the kids ourselves.... meaning my ex-lifeguard sister teaches them

Matthew spent pretty much the entire summer in the pool. He is a fish! We just got off a cruise a couple weeks ago and he loved splashing in the Caribbean for the first time.

Some water pics of him from the cruise....

Nope no swimming for her yet, but on the summer that is coming she is going swimming to the sea (not a pool i mean this is GREECE KWIM? LLLOLOLOL......) and she will have swimming lesson with yours truly (she needs no one else really... i am a sea fish).. knowing how to swim here equals knowing how to walk

Weve been told that you can take them swimming after their belly buttons healed, but mum has to wait till after 6 weeks! Inny is 6 weeks on w
sunday. Out 6 week checkup is on wed and I hope well be in the pool on thurs (as long as our colds have gone!) I cant wait . He is such a water baby, if hes tottaly stresses the best thing to do is we both have a deep bath together.

Inny is going to start those baby swimming lessons after xmas. I have no idea how to teach a child to swim!
