Though infants are not developed enough to learn how to swim, there are some guidelines for having them in the pool.
- Keep your baby in your arms at all times.
- Make sure they are wearing a swimming diaper to avoid fecal matter getting into the pool (which can be harmful to all other swimmers).
- An infant can drown in an inch of water in under 30 seconds, so be aware of water levels in buckets, inflatables, and tubs.
- Keep rescue and first-aid equipment near the pool at all times.
