  • My daughter has been enrolled in swimming lessons (parent/tot) since she was 6 months old. She already knows how to stick her head under water and kick her arms and leg when you hold her across the tummy. I say the earlier the better!

  • my girls are 2 years this month, we started them last summer they were 14 months or so when we started. we had a baby float for each of them but also the swim wings (the things that go on their arms) they did well, by the end of the summer emma would fload all around the pool with just the swim wings on and kicked and everything. the sooner you start the better otherwise they will be terrified of the water.
