Baby and Me Swim Class

Carter and I are signed up for a swim class starting May 9th. That gives me 2 weeks to find a swimsuit. God help me.

Pics from this weekend to be posted later. Carter had a blast meeting his cousins and aunt and uncle.

Edited: I've cancelled the class after reading I'm Not Skippy's comment and doing some online research. I'm not willing to risk it.

I don't want to alarm you, and maybe your local pool has a UV filter, but I asked our pediatrician about baby swim classes. His concern was there are several studies that link early swimming to Asthma. Not from swimming, but from being in an indoor pool with the fumes from the chlorine.

And I really, REALLY want to take a swimming class with my son. My older sister and her son are the only two people I know who took baby swimming classes (under one year), and they are the only two people I know who have severe Asthma. Especially my nephew who is now 5 and does at least one nebulizer treatment a day.

Just something to check out.

I desperately want to do a class with him, but I'm waiting for at least one year. I'm not saying don't do it, I'm just saying a quick google search on the subject may not be a bad idea.
