Wondering when you can take your baby swimming? 

Dr Eunice Adei  advises; By around 8 weeks, it is generally safe to take your baby in the sea or pool. However, there are a few things to consider. 

  • Younger babies may not be able to regulate their temperature as well as older babies, so it is advisable that they don’t swim in water that is too cold.
  • It’s best to avoid crowded public pools.
  • If taking into the sea, the saltwater can sometimes dry out their skin, so ensure that you wash and moisturise after as required.
  • Ensure that babies and children are supervised at all times while in or around water. 

If you have any concerns, then please always discuss with your physician.
