My DD is 15 weeks. At what age is it ok to take her swimming in a chlorinated swimming pool?..
Just for a splash around not for swimming lessons.. TIA

  • can they start


  • I would wait till any child is immunised properly before taking them swimming… most swim schools start at 4 months :)


  • Think my bub had splashes from around 3 months.


  • What about just for a float around? She won’t be putting her head under.


  • Most won’t allow you to start until they are 6 months of age


  • I think you will find that it is fine unless she has sensitive skin. I started swimming lessons for one of mine at 6 months.
