Is it safe to bring my almost 6 month old in the ocean?

I live on the beach, and I've brought my son out to the beach , and today he experienced his first time in the sand.( just his feet) but I was curious if his feet can be in the salt water? He already has really dry skin, but I am just curious. I will obviously be asking his doctor but just curious

    We have had Tristen in the ocean pretty early on because we lived by the beach too. We just made sure we bathed him as soon as we got home. It never really bothered his skin and he has eczema pretty bad. I mean we never dunked him or anything lol just dipped his feet in until he got big enough to play with us in the water.

      Definitely safe but bathe after to get the salt off and moisturize.

        James was baptized at 2 months in the ocean, by his great aunt :) he didn't really know what was going on. We have been back to the ocean once more after that and he loved getting his feet wet.

          I had my son out there around 3 months but i did make sure to keep a visor on him and under shade.
