When is the right time to start?

Guidelines say that you can take your baby swimming at any age, both before and after they have been vaccinated. Your baby may feel feverish or irritated in the days after their vaccination, so you may prefer to wait until they feel better. For more information consult with your local GP.

making the most out of bathtime

Get them used to the water, swaying movements of the water, noises, colours and splashes will be similar to the pool environment. This will help sensory development and prepare your little one for the new environment when all of their senses will be working at the same time.

Keeping your baby warm

If you plan to go swimming but your baby has been experiencing cold or flu type symptoms or a tummy upset recently, postpone your swimming plans until they have been clear of any symptoms for at least 48 hours. As babies tend to lose heat quicker than adults, it is important to keep your baby warm while in the pool so begin with short 10 minute sessions in the pool while encouraging them to kick their legs and keep moving. If you’re concerned about the temperature of the pool, ask a pool attendant for reassurance. As a guideline anything around 32 degrees is considered suitable for babies. If possible take your baby’s poncho with you to the poolside so that you can put it on as soon as you are out of the water to reduce heat loss and to keep your little one covered and cosy. Chlorine levels in some swimming pools can irritate your baby’s skin. If you are concerned, make sure you visit your GP before you go swimming especially if your baby has sensitive skin.
