Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
1 year old baby
hi nimisha - many parents overseas start very young. if u r a swimmer urself, i wud suggest getting her initiated to the splash pool with arm bands whn u are comfy. i waited till she was a year old. it gives them a bit more immunity! do ask ur ped - pls make sure her ears are protected with a cap. pls make sure its a good pool and cleaned regularly! good luck!

I myself was a player and won national awards in swimming but I will definitely suggest u to wait till 1-2 years it's so soon to get into a pool once or twice is fine but not regularly in every pool they use chlorine to clean the pool that is very harmful for adults also he is a small baby

As asha chaudhry said, kids abroad are introduced very young. I guess you should seek your doctor's approval before deciding. By 1 to 2 years of age kids develop better immunity. They also gain physical strength that is required in swimming. So better to wait till the child turns a year old atleast.
awesome prabhjyot! do keep us posted and whn u start teaching her pls share valuable tips with all of us! will be super helpful! saving this post for reference! looking fwd to a pick of both of u at the pool - let me dig one out too! good luck!
Awesome I think Nandini Aravind also has some ideas. I used to take my 6 month to the pool for play. Not teaching him but just splash. Great summer activity. Tag Fwd
Hi Nimisha, at this age swimming will be all about having a good time with mommy. The best age for a kid to take instructions in a pool like holding their breath or blowing bubbles or even jumping into the pool would be 3.5yrs above. But you can take your kiddo to the baby pool and let him get accoustmed to the water!!! In bangalore they do have an infant swimming classes where the instructors are certified to teach infants. And one parent have get into the pool with their kiddo!! You can search for something like that!!
