    They have that rule at our local indoor pool, but guarantee you there's a poop siren every now & then and the whole pool is shut down and drained and everyone else gets the sh*ts lol...

    A few years ago I was at a public pool with some toddlers I nannied for. They were done swimming (had had swim nappy and bathing suit on) and one of them had a HORRIBLE nappy rash, like weeping sores it was so bad. I decided to let her run around without a nappy on for a bit to just let her little bottom get some fresh air and 'breath.' We were still at the pool, having a play date with friends but the kids were finished with the pool and running around the grass and a small plastic playground toy. Honestly never occurred to me to be worried about hygiene and it gets better......

    She ran by with something swinging between her 'cheeks.'

    The other mom I was with and I laughed that she had, what we thought was, a leaf stuck between her cheeks.

    Then she ran by again and it was gone.

    Then a few minutes later I went to check on them as they were in a spot where we couldn't see them well.

    As I walked over I saw tiny nuggets of poo scattered about. I thought to myself 'uh-oh' and I dared to look at the slide where there was poo smeared in a perfect line all the way down.

    The 'leaf' dangling between her cheeks was poo.

    I just signed up for baby swim lessons at a place that only does baby swim classes, so the pool is especially designed to be baby friendly, warm water, etc. They have a double nappy policy which is a swim nappy with a 'happy nappy,' a swimsuit like looks like little tight swim shorts but has little flaps around the leg holes for protection. Somebody was telling me that poo sometimes STILL breaks through and they actually have a 'code brown' and cancel lessons and drain the pool.

    I thought you were going to say that it was you at the pool today.

    how do you know the age of the baby? I would be more worried about a 6 week old being exposed to pool chemicals. If they're hippies then baby is probably bf, which means the poo wouldn't be too toxic and loads of toddlers pee in the pool.

    I would love for one time, when a thread like this pops up, for somebody to raise their hand and say 'it was me!' 🙋

    Our local pool has a sign up stating that children under 3 must wear a swim nappy. They also have a pamphlet with a list of their rules and at the bottom they suggest that children should not have their clothing changed around the pool and instead taken into the parents room for privacy.
