Kourtney Kardashian wants her baby to have swimming lessons.

The stunning socialite is considering sending her seven-month-old son Mason - her child with boyfriend Scott Disick - to a class to learn to swim but is paranoid he is too young to start.

She wrote on her blog: "I am thinking of having Mason start swimming lessons this summer. I've heard that babies become great swimmers when taught early because of their natural survival instinct to hold their breath under water. The combination of a pool and a baby does scare me if lots of caution isn't taken though.

"How does everyone feel about it? When is the right time to teach a child to swim?"

Kourtney got the idea to get Mason started on swimming lessons after she and Scott went to New York to celebrate July 4th weekend and the tot had a great time splashing around his paternal grandparents' pool during a visit.

She added: "For the long Fourth of July weekend we ALL - Mason, Scott, Kris, Kim, Khloe, Lamar, Kendall and our entire camera crew! - headed off to the Big Apple! It was Mason's first trip to New York, where Scott was born and raised.

"Scott and I enjoyed taking Mason around the city, strolling outside. What a fantastic city for children with the culture, the museums, the parks, endless activities and the energy.

"We also took Mason out to the Hamptons to visit Scott's parents. Naturally, the grandparents were beyond excited to spend some nice time with their grandson relaxing by the pool.

"Mason LOVES the pool! (Lots of sunscreen, a swim diaper and a big hat, of course.) (sic)"
