Does your baby like to go in water like a pool or lake? Mine does not

Does your baby cringe when their toes start dipping into a pool or lake?  Makes family fun days a lot less fun.  What do you do for this?  Just force it and let them cry or avoid it?

I think you need to bring interest in the baby to go in the water. Make your baby feel comfortable with water. He must be afraid to go in the deep water so you will have to work towards eliminating that fear. Show him some videos and encourage your child to step foot in the water. No need to force if he is not liking it. With time he will start coming in the water.
