I was just wondering....its 91 degrees here in san diego right now and my house is sooo hot and my mom has a pool. I think my baby is too small, he is 5 weeks and 4 days, but summer is coming up and i was wondering at what age they can get into a pool? ( I'm not going to have him try or swim or anything) and do you keep them in a diaper?

He's too young IMO, I'd wait a few months...

Personally I would not.
We waited until Gavin was 6 months

I took Hailey when she was a month old she did fine, of course being that young she could have cared less what was going on but she was fine with it til she got hungry lol

i deff think its too small.
wouldn't the water be too cold for the baby? i think you should just sit out by the pool. he shouldn't get too much son though either.

Lots of momma's take their babies in that young. You just can't leave them in too long, because of the sun and all. Maybe like 5 minutes. I took my daughter in at 6 weeks. If you think about it. .they do newborn swim classes, so it's really no different.

I'd say wait until he's big enough to at least hold his head up. Is the pool heated? The water may be too cold otherwise. I'd say put him in a shallow kiddie pool this summer. The water will warm up with the sun, so it won't be too cold.



You can put him in lil swimmers diapers. Regular diapers will suck up the water. And make sure you slather on plenty of sunblock!

I waited 6 weeks and she loved it. I live in a really hot area on the central coast of Cali and we needed to have a cool down. You will be fine. Have fun but put a hat on him:)
