What should I know about my pool's chlorine and my baby?


Answer by  kgrim (510)

Chlorine is a strong chemical and can possibly cause irritaion with your baby's sensitive skin and eyes, not to mention if it is ingested. Seek YOUR pediatricians advise before splashing in the pool. Always watch for signs of irritaion and reactions. In the mean time enjoy the bathtub.

First off, whether or not your baby is allergic to chlorine, and second, what are the levels of chlorine set at in the pool.


Answer by  whoareyou (3483)

For minimum side effects, chlorinate properly, and don't put your baby in until at least an hour (or 2) after fully settled. Some say chlorine exposure with babies under 4 years old can possibly lead to asthma, and other minor breathing issues. Opt for a kiddiepool that doesn't need it.
