ds is 3 yrs he has had one illness after another cold mild and bad mainly .. I feel like I am just keeping him cooped up now because he is always ill.. spoken to GP she says its normal at his age to always be ill and he again has a pretty bad cold with a temperature ...
but he is bored out of his mind ! we have exhausted all of our rainy days activities he needs to get out of the house but its raining outside and I don't really have the money to take him to play place and he just gets so over exited when he is there.
my gut is telling me swimming is not a great idea but wondered if I was being over protective.
he has a swim lesson today its half hour inside pool obviously should I let him go or not...??
Hiya - personally, I wouldn't. Mainly cos you get cold when you are in and out of the pool even if the pool is warm and thats not nice when you have a cold. Never mind the snot in the pool issues !
On the other hand it sounds like you both need to get out - could you just put on waterproofs and splash in puddles? That would give him some air to blow the cold away and if my 3 rd old is anything to go by, he would have a blast.
Hope he gets better soon and that it stops raining!
I've taken ds with the remnants of a cold and when he's still had a cold. But never when he has a temperature (he even struggles getting out of a nice warm bath when he has a temp, let alone a swimming pool) or if he's still not feeling right in himself.
