For lap pool swimming, the width of the lanes is narrower than the Olympics. For lap pools, it is 6.5 to 7 feet wide for each lane.

What is the lane width for a 25 meter pool?

It depends on where you are swimming. For an answer on the standard width as defined by US Swimming I suggest you visit their website. If you are just looking for the distance at your pool, an easy way to find out is to simply measure the width of the pool and divide by the number of lanes you have. Another way would be to actually measure the distance between the eye hooks with a tape measure.

I am trying to find out if the rules for lap pools differ from regular swimming pools and if infants and toddlers should be allowed in a lap pool?

Each facility makes up their own rules. Most places allow only lap swimmers in a lap pool. It is common for there to be two swimmers in a lane in a recreational facility. The general rule, too, would be - - if the lap lane(s) are being used by someone then keep the children and yourself out of those lap lanes. Common courtesy.
