Hi girls.

Just a quick question... When is it okay to take baby swimming? My daughter is 5 weeks old almost and loves the bath. Me and OH are keen to take her swimming and weren't sure if it's okay to at this age.

There is some conflicting advice a lot of pools and some people say they need to wait till they've had first set of jabs. Some say that's not the case. I just waited till first set of jabs to be on
the safe side. My area has no warm pools either so I bought a Baby wrap to
keep him warm. Unfortunately my son has a bad chest and we hardly get to
Take him and he loves it too!

i took gabriel last week (@ 9 weeks) and he loved it! luckily the pool at my gym is nice and warm ( a seperate kids pool) so we were able to stay some time. check out your local pools and go for the warmest one!

Both mine were about six weeks when they first went. Def check out the temp at each leisure sentre as i found it varied hugely. And I would highly reccomend a baby wetsuit as keeps them much warmer (you can get in mothercare)
