I understand that people don't like it, but it's illogical. There's no adverse effects of having milk, urine, feces, sweat, or saliva in the pool (all of which you have, even if the mother didn't actuall feed the kid in the pool but just went there right after feeding). The only one of those which may cause sickness is the feces, but the water has enough Cl to prevent that from happening.

Not quite accurate. The presence of observable faecal matter prompts a closing of the pool in order to superchlorinate it. The ambient chlorine is typically ineffective in dealing with moderate concentrations of faecal coliforms. This is why we request infants to wear rubber swimwear; to prevent the contamination of the pool with faecal matter. A similar principle applies to vomit, and to large enough quantities of blood.
