We started at 6 months. Best money spent on him. For a long time him and his friends were in a special group as they were all too young to advance up a group but too advanced to stay where they were.
You really notice the difference between the kids who have been doing it for a while and the ones who have started older. The downside is that they can be a little over confident and have no fear of the water.
Ds did have ear infections but his friends didn''t. I think its just his genetics.

When I asked my GP about it, she said that sometimes it's just the luck of the draw. Some kids get infections - particularly ear and sinus - at the drop of a hat, while others cheerfully go through infancy with barely a hint. I'm working on the assumption that the same applies for swimming :P

DD started at 4mths and is 18mths now. We do swim lessons twice a week, 3 times in winter. She has never had an ear infection or illness. Most ear infections are caused by not drying the ears, not the pool water.
