Water safety is a common worry for many parents and a fear of water for whatever reason can be very limiting. Introducing babies to water at an early stage is the first step in avoiding such a fear and making swimming and water play an enjoyable experience!
Other reasons for taking your baby swimming:
- It helps develop different kinds of movements and physical abilities to help develop the higher functions of the brain. Swimming allows the babies freedom of movement which allows them to develop actions they wouldn’t otherwise have had the opportunity to experience.
- Although the structure of the lessons is very gentle they provide a complete physical work-out strengthening your baby’s heart, lungs and respiratory system which again aids the development of the brain.
- Swimming is excellent for improving core muscle development and co-ordination.
- Regular swimming can improve eating and sleeping patterns.
