Baby pool is no place for toddlers or babies, so how to get a turtle baby out of the pool is crucial.CBC’s Joanna Loh said the baby pool is the perfect place for babies to grow up.
“You’re basically, basically just taking a baby to a pool and you just kind of hold the baby in your arms,” said Loh.
Baby pool is one of the easiest places to take a baby.
Loh recommends holding the baby on your lap.
“You’re just holding your baby and just going up and down and going to the side,” she said.
But not all pools are created equal.
A baby’s crib, for example, is not necessarily a safe place to hold the child.
Loh recommends using a baby blanket to keep the child warm.
“So if you’ve got a baby sitting on the couch and they’re sitting on a baby bed and you’re going to sit on the baby blanket and then you’re gonna pull the baby away and go back and sit on a blanket and they won’t be able to breathe, that’s not a good situation for your baby,” said Dr. Loe.
Baby crib is not the safest place for a baby because it is often a poor fit for your toddler or baby.
Loe says you need to choose the right size crib.
“It needs to be at least 2-3 times the length of the baby,” she explained.
If you do decide to take your baby to the baby crib, it’s important to take the child to the right place.
“If it’s just sitting on your couch and you don’t have a way of putting it on your knees or on your back or a crib seat, it can be hard to get the baby to come into a place that’s appropriate for your child,” said loh.
“I would recommend that you do your homework and find a pool that has the appropriate size crib.”
You can also look into pool lounges.
“So if it’s the baby sitting at the crib, they’re going in the right area and if they’re at a pool, then it’s probably a good idea to find a place where you can put the baby.”
The one thing that we recommend for any pools, when they do have a baby pool, is to have it have a crib that has a baby-friendly layout, so it’s a lot easier for them to sit and just relax.

Baby safety tips to keep babies safeBaby pool etiquette and etiquette vary across the country.
“That’s the one thing about pools that is they are very structured.””
When you’re at the pool, you’re just going to go around and do your business,” said Kari Thompson, a licensed nursing home and child care professional with a busy baby care schedule.
“That’s the one thing about pools that is they are very structured.”
In Canada, the Canadian Association of Children’s Hospitals recommends pool etiquette, which means that you should never touch your baby.
“They’re not going to be able get in your lap, they’ll be unable to get in the crib because they’re too small,” said Thompson.
She also recommends taking your baby out with your child in tow.
“The way that they’re being held is really not appropriate,” said DLAH’s Thompson.
“We’re recommending that you make sure your child has enough room to move around and that they are able to be outside in a safe environment.”

If your child is being held in a pool by a babysitter, you may want to contact the babysitter to make sure they’re safe.
“We have to remember, we don’t want to have any accidents,” said Krissy DeBenedict, a registered child care worker with a small children’s hospital.
“And we want to make the babysitters feel safe.”
DeBenediction recommends making sure the babysitting is a trusted babysitter.
“A babysitter should be someone who is a good friend and is willing to be responsible,” she added.
DeBendedict says if a babysitting doesn’t live near you, you can contact the National Association of Pool and Spa Safety Officials.
