In my country, let baby swim is a fashion. Some parents even let the baby swim within one month age.
Do you agree with that ?
I would have been nervous to let him swim as early as one month, even with him in my arms, but I do wish I'd been able to start him on lessons at a younger age (we started last summer, he was/is 5), but working did not leave time in my schedule for it before that.
My LO started @ 7 mos............he's 6 now....He LOVES to swim :)
Newborns can supposedly swim. I wouldnt leave them unsupervised but why not? DD never learned how to swim and unfortunately has limited access to water in that way. She will be 7 next month and i would love to do lessons for her.
I think it is awesome! We had our daughter in swim classes as soon as she could sit up. She has a sensory issue though and hates water in her face. So swimming is an issue. But I think it is a good thing .
My child was older when I took him for Mom and Me swimming lessons, at an indoor pool, but there were a number of infants. It teaches the babies how to hold their breath underwater and how to swim underwater- I think it is a good idea for the safety.
