Um yeah babies can't breathe underwater lol.
We started DS at 12 months...I believe the bathtub is enough for 'water familiarisation' prior to then.
I don't fancy exposing my baby to all of the chemicals in pool water when they are still so little.
As a family, we spend a lot of time around pools, river, creeks,.lakes, the ocean, so it wasn't an option for me to put it off.
I started DD at 6 months and she absolutely loves the water. the sooner you can get them used to splashing around/falling in/turning back to the ledge, the better I think.
Thanks everyone that's awesome info I can't thank each post from my phone but thank you to each post.
