    A few of us moms were talking over the weekend about the first time our LO's swam.

    Did you take your LO swimming for the first time over the long weekend?

    When will you or when did your little one enjoy the pool, beach, river or lake for the first time?

    I have not taken my 5 week old swimming yet, but I did take my now 3.5 year old swimming for the first time when she was only 3 months old in a pool and she seemed to really like it.
