There's no technical reason why you can't take your baby swimming as soon as he or she is born! In practice there are considerations, and it's ultimately up to you when you feel confident enough to take your baby swimming. Babies under 12 weeks do need a warmer pool than general public pools allow. Many parents wait until after the first immunisations but that isn't necessary because the chlorine in water should kill bacteria, making the pool no more dangerous than anywhere else. Babies will enjoy the sensation of being in water, and exposure from an early age will give them a confidence in water that will remain with them. Many public pools have baby swimming classes, why not investigate what you have locally? It's great for your babies, and a great way to meet other mom's!
