    They say the best time is after their first lot of immunisations.

    I would be very wary of taking a new baby into a holiday-resort pool, as it's anyone's guess how clean the water would be.

    I've heard the same thing about waiting for their immunizations, but I don't think they deem it necessary to wait anymore because that was back when polio was being spread. I personally don't plan on taking my baby into a pool until she's around 2 months old, and even then it won't be a public one.

    Hi,

    I took both my babies swimming as soon as able. This was when they had recieved the first round of injections.I think they were about six weeks old but I can't be sure.I would call your health clinic and ask to speak to one of the health visitors (im assuming you are in UK). They will be able to inform you correctly.Enjoy your holiday.
