Question:

is it safe for newborn babies to go in a chlorine pool


Answer:

There are varying opinions on this topic, but most experts agree that there are risks with exposing newborns to swimming pool water. It is typically recommended that babies have all initial immunizations completed, typically 4 to 5 months old. If you do plan to swim, make sure to test the water for proper chlorine and pH levels and bathe before and after swimming with a moisturizing wash to prevent babies skin from drying out.
