ISR? (infant swimming resource) Have you done it? Heard of it?

We didn't have the opportunity w/ my daughter but did with son. They replicate real life situations (Baby in diaper, clothes, shoes) and toss 'em in and teach them to not panic and drown. The earlier you do it the better the outcome. I am curious if this is available where you live?

  • Not all children are going to react to it the same way this child did.... I know for a fact that if they would have done this to my son he would have swallowed water and gone under. I don't agree with this method at all!

  • I have heard of giving very young babies swimming lessons, but not this. Sounds traumatizing!
