    My mil works at a public pool, they don't take **** lightly. The kiddies pool gets drained completely. In the indoor pool it has to be shut down and heaps of chemicals put in, and not reopened until the chemical levels are ok.
    Even little babies can have gastro. Plus it won't even be solid at that age so not as easy to scoop it out.
    I would have told a staff member

    Most public pools would have a rule about bubs wearing nappies and if you want to use their pool then you have to follow their rules... BUT if I had a pool I'd have no problem with it. Some parents know when their bub is going to poop because they practise infant toileting or elimination communication and never have their bub in a nappy, in or out of water.

    Same as most others, I would have said something to staff... And moved away in case the baby pooped. So unhygienic :thumbdown:

    I would have said something to a life guard.
    Recently I saw the manager threaten to call the police on a father who refused to either put nappies on his 1 year old twins or remove them from the water.
    As soon as the police were mentioned he was out the door as fast as he could. His attitude to the staff was disgusting.

    The elimination communication thing did cross my mind when I was trying to figure out what to do. In the end I don't think there's anyway a parent can predict with reasonable certainty when a 6 week old will crap. Definitely not with enough confidence to risk it in a public pool. It appeared like the parents toddlers were wearing some type of swimming pants too which made me doubt the EC angle..

    Even if they were practicing EC, rules are rules and are there for the health and well-being of all.
    Definately not on and a quiet word with a staff member would be my course of action.

    In my own pool at home wouldnt bother me. In a public pool... different story. Im not sure what i would have done.... probably just quietly thought to myself ewwww hope bub doesnt poo and leave it at that.

    What do i think you did? Either had a quiet word to the mum and/or pool staff member.

    I would mention it to the lifeguard. Every pool I've been in/worked at has a very strict policy of swim nappies on little ones.

    Default WWYD: Baby swimming without nappy

    I would probably tell a lifeguard or some sort of employee, that's so so gross, on so many levels!!

    I reckon you would've spoken to her personally and asked her what in the world made her think that having a newborn (or any untoilet trained child for that matter) in a pool without a nappy on was a good idea.

    For the record, what did you do?

    I should have

    I was going to go up to the mum and say "I have a spare swimming nappy if you would like to borrow it?" But decided against that... I had my bub with me and didn't want to deal with any crap if the mum turned out to be a feral.
