  • Ya I am the same! They set that baby up to fall into the pool and edited the video because it looked like the baby whacked its head. I mean yes teach ur child how to swim but dont set a trap to prove a point.

  • The 1st kid was pretty cool. He was swimming all over the place. The second baby I felt bad for. Poor kid fell in the pool and the parent was just filming away. Sure, he didn't get hurt...but that could have been bad.

  • I was scared at first, but the second baby looked happy at the end, smiling with his daddy. I don't know if I would be that brave, but obviously those babies were safe and more importantly, they felt safe. The first baby was sooo cute to watch!

  • I was part of a Red Cross swimming class that taught babies how to swim. It was amazing. My son was 9 months old and loved it. We just blew gently in the babies faces and they would hold their breath. We would gently put them under the water and let the babies kick. We also had some severely handicapped kids who did great with swimming.
