Frequently Asked Questions: What Can I Do To Prepare My Baby For Swimming Lessons?
Often when someone books their first Parent & Baby Swimming Lessons we get asked…“What can I do to prepare my baby for swimming lessons?”
The most important part of preparing your baby for swimming lessons is to give them positive experiences in the water. You want them to enjoy their aquatic experiences so they can feel more comfortable as they transition to swimming lessons.
One idea is to get into the bath with your child at bath time, play games, sing songs, bring toys and have fun. Some parents also find it works to buy fun swimming outfits including one completely fabulous Pink Pepper Pig ensemble we saw recently!
All children under the age of 3 years are required to wear the double nappy system in SwimWay Classes. This consists of an aqua nappy (such as Huggies) that can be bought in most supermarkets/chemists and a Happy Nappy over the top. The Happy Nappy can be bought on-line at www.splashabout.com and from JoJo Maman Bébé.
