Hi pippa congrats on the birth of your little boy ollie I have 2 questions for you how old was ollie when you first brought him swimming I have a 12 wk old who I am eager to bring swimming soon and secondly is ollie sleeping through the night? If so how old did he start this our little boy Charlie sleeps for at least 8 hrs at night then another 3 after his morning bottle.

Hi Rebecca,

Ollie was 14 weeks old when we first brought him swimming.
He really enjoyed it. He also slept really well after it.
We are starting water babies soon so I’m looking forward to that.
I’m sure your little Charlie is ready too. Babies can be brought into a swimming pool from birth.

Ollie’s sleep is getting better every week. At the moment he goes to bed at roughly the same time every night, 8.30pm. That’s after a bath, book, cuddles, bottle.

He’s been waking once at about 5am, he has a bottle and goes straight back to sleep until 7.30am.

His morning nap is about 9am for 1 hour.

I’ve tried the dream feed several times at about midnight but he still wakes at the same time regardless so instead of me waiting up till then I try go to sleep earlier and then at least we’re only up once.

We’ve started solids now so it’ll be interesting to see if this changes any night time sleeping pattern.

Good luck with the swimming
