Swimming Class?!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
HI

My husband just enrolled our unvaxed 17 month old son in swimming class at a YMCA.
We have taken our son to swim in salt water pools before but not on a chlorinated pool before....

Have you taken your unvaxed kiddo to swimming classes ?

I admit I tend to get a bit anxious about these things...
Thanks!!!

I have taken DD swimming. Our local pool is salt water. I never gave a second thought to going swimming. I dont really think about that stuff. I just live life like anyone else would. i would be more concerned about the chlorine than the germs at the pool IMO.

I don't think twice about taking my unvaxed kiddos anywhere. I would never consider the pool to be a dangerous place other then the chorine issue. We do pools all the time, I just make the kids take a shower afterwards to rinse the chemicals out.

I would be more concerned about the chlorine than diseases. Chlorine is NASTY stuff.

My vax free 6 yo has been swimming at the y since she was 1 week old. (DH is the membership coordinator there). I never even thought about her vaccinations status for that.

What are your specific concerns?

My babies, (1 yr and 2.5) are vax free and in swim lessons, never thought twice about it and have had no problems

The nasties typically picked up in pools do not have vaccines.
