Ask Dr. Sears.... http://www.parenting.com/article/ask-dr-sears-too-young-for-the-pool
I'd just be concerned about chlorine and getting it in baby's eyes or irritating their skin.
Also, assuming the pool is outdoors, speak with your pediatrician about their recommendations for sunblock. Some say OK before 6 mos old, some say no.
Dd is 3 weeks today and we've been going to the pool for over a week now because my older dd and DS have swim team practice. It's been too chilly to introduce the baby to the water, but our ped gave us the ok when we r ready and suggested California baby sunblock. I also bought a Hanna Andersson Rash guard to protect from the sun --> http://www.hannaandersson.com/category.aspx?id=baby_swimwear
I have a water wrap to wear dd into the water. I don't think I'll get her all the way in, but maybe her lower body. We'll see. She loves loves loves her baths and I'm hoping that will translate to the pool.
