01 Jul Splash Safety
Ok parents, here’s where I get nervous and yes, I want this blog to scare you. It’s alright to start swimming lessons early with your baby, but definitely wait until your baby gains head control first. There are plenty of parent child classes for you to participate in with your baby. Take a first aid and CPR course before introducing your child to the water, these skills will help you to think and act fast in the event something happens. If you have a pool at home please keep the doors and gates secured to avoid any accidents. Never leave your child alone near water, that includes your bathtubs and buckets. Kids are quick and fast, so always keep your eyes on them when they are near or in water.
Water play is something most children will enjoy and have so many precious memories to reflect on later. Let’s do our part and keep them safe. Make sure you follow the proper guidelines for safety gear, and have fun while your baby learns something new.
