    We took Freya last week at 19 weeks! Probably later than others but we were on a waiting list for lessons! Aqua tots it's fab! She absolutely loved it too!

    Can't wait to take her this week x

    I took Charlie last week, he did like it but it was colder than his baths so he started getting niggly after 15 mins which was plenty of time anyway. If you can take someone with you just to help when you're getting changed, I was on my own it was a bit of a disaster! Also, try and use the stuff they have there like floats to see if they pike them if you're planning on buying a ring etc, as I was gonna get a ring and tried the one they had at the pool and he hated it! Saved me 15 quid though :D hope it goes well when you do take your Lo :) x

    Well cause Charlie can't sit up properly he just sort of lay back on it I think that's what he didnt like, plus the ring was in between is and he seemed quite far away from me iykwim x

    NHS website says whenever you want--- they used to say after six week jabs but that was when polo was a problem apparently its safe now from birth although some pools have a certain age x

    think the water is supposed to be warmer than a normal pool, thats why the water babies type classes use hydrotherapy pools etc. We went at 12 weeks cos of when lessons started and Holly loves it, goes underwater which is amazing. She's got eczema though so can't go now till it's under control again. You can get baby wetsuits that keep them warm in pools.
