Swim lessons for babies.

What's your experience and opinion on them. DD is almost 7 months and I'm contemplating putting her in one.

  • my dd and I started swim lessons when she was 6 months old she is now 6 years old and competing with 12 year olds SHE LOVES IT It was great for her development-- she could swim before she could walk! DS is 4 and swam the same at 6 months old- he is in class with the 6-12 year olds group in the highest level of that group he can go before having to leave -- he is not legally allowed to compete until he's 6 so the swim school is keeping him he does agility now

  • I didn't put my DD in swim lessons till 18 months. She did great at first but then her 2nd year she freaked out because a instructor dunked her when she didnt' want to and we stopped going. We started teaching her in my parents pool and she has done AWESOME!!
