Swimming with babies after birth
Babies can be taken swimming immediately after giving birth. The NHS advises that babies can be taken swimming at any age, and there’s no need to wait until your newborn has had their first immunisations.
Although your baby is safe to swim, to avoid infection, mum should wait until around 6 weeks or 7 days after vaginal bleeding after birth stops. If you do want to take your baby swimming beforehand, it’s the perfect opportunity for dad or other family members to bond with your little one.
