my dc has been doing waterbabies this last yr but recently has started getting really red eyes due to the chlorine (I think)/
has anyone else had this problem? not sure if I should just stop the lessons or if there's anywhere I could buy him some goggles?
he really enjoys the lessons otherwise.

My instant reaction would be to avoid goggles in such a small baby. Neither of mine ever suffered with red eyes after swimming though. Have you tried a different pool to see if it is a problem with the pool used by water babies?

Are his eyes actually bothering him after swimming

Why is this in AIBU?

Because (I expect) that's exactly where the OP wanted to post it.

Then she is BU. I'm here for a good argument not questions about baby swimming. <feeling mardy>

thank you. I don't know if it bothers him though he has started screaming when dunked so it could be the chlorine upsetting him. He gets inflamed eyes in other pools too unfortunately. I will buy him goggles - thanks for link. just have never seen other babies with them so not sure whether I should just stop the swimming??

AIBU to want to throw nextdoor's baby off the end of Southend Pier so I can get a bit of peace and quiet and not hear it blowing a blasted recorder through the wall all day long? grin
