well even though my daughter is not a baby anymore, when she was I would take her all the time. What I did is hold her over my shoulder and wrap my arms around her tightly; this made her feel secure. I also took her often, so that when she was older she would be used to and feel comfortable enough to be in a baby floatie, or splash around. I did the same with my son, and it worked for him too. Water is a big thing to a baby, so maybe cuddling your baby like that might help. Good luck!

Blake LOVES the pool! As long as it is warm enough, he has a blast!

Miah and Alyssa love the pool and the beach. Ella went to the beach with us, but she slept the entire time.

We took Tyler to the lake on the long weekend and the water was pretty cold but he was like a little baby sea turtle when they are born and he went straight for the water as soon as we put him on the sand. He loved it, he crawled around for a couple of hours and splashed. Needless to say he was exhasuted when we got home.
