Tip – Swimming Lessons

Swimming lessons are great and can be started when your baby is five months old. To help prepare your baby for swimming lessons, during bath time fill a cup with water, say your child’s name then “ready, set, go” and tip the cup of water over your baby’s head so it runs down their face. This will teach them to close their eyes and mouth and block their nose.

If you are planning to go to a certain swim school, go there first and ask them which voice commands they use when pouring water over the face.
