So it is going to be summer time soon and I was thinking about putting my son in swimming lessons. Hes 6 months now but I wouldnt really start until June, so he'll be 7 months. I was just wondering if any of you have done swimming lessons at that age? What were your experiences like? Do they really learn how to swim at that age or should I wait until he is older, like a year?Answer Question

The today show did a ditty on this a couple years ago. Their expert said while kids might learn to float or doggie paddle, at a very young age they will not learn skills to save their life in the water (what to do if you fall in, how to get a toy out, or things like that) so many parents have a false sense of security around the water.
I personally think swim lessons are just a waste of money until a child can ask to join the activity.
