Wow I've never heard of 'dry-drowning' before...weird, and a bit scary. Ashley always has a nap after swimming. In fact he's upstairs now... Sad

Can videos do it then? I was under the impression that a professional trainer has to be there in person ?

Yes the dry drowning is very strange, especially that kids tend to sleep after swimming, like Karli's Ashley, because they are drained from all their energy Wink

I also have a video called Waterbabies by Little Dippers UK. It's a 21 week by week instruction and demonstration of how you can teach your baby to swim. Their main aim is to teach babies to swim to the edge or to turn and float in case they do fall into the water.

They also say that most drowning occurs when the baby panics and takes in water, but if they manage to stay calm, it actually reduces the chances of drowning.

In the video, they have around 10-15 babies doing the demo and the youngest is only 5 weeks old. It's really amazing to watch them all being taught how to swim and also when they actually swim.

However, at the end of the day, it is the practical experience which matters so I definitely still think a real coach will be better than any videos or books.  yes

Thanks for the info! smile

I was wondering, did you try the videos with your baby then? I mean, did you watch them and try doing them yourself? how well is that working out?

Did try the first few weeks as some exercises I can do in the bath tub at home and it was fine, but then I enrolled her into an actual swim class.

Hi everybody

We had to give the brand-new Reading section of BrillBaby priority over the Swimming section (do check out the new Reading section if you haven't already!).

But... I had a chat with a baby-swim instructor and pediatrician to put together a Swimming FAQ that I hope some of you will find useful.

Personally, I've found the submersion technique invaluable. I don't think I would've had the guts to put Naimah under without it!

I also recommend counting to three right before you blow in your baby's face. Nim got the hang of it immediately and now, when I start counting, I can see her preparing to go under. She used to look so completely shocked (and a little scared) when she came up - but not anymore. smile

Hi,

I started teaching my babyboy swimming in the pool last week.  He is now five months old and gets realy excited when he sees the water smile  I still cant let him on his own but he is already doing the doggy style swiming technique smile
Here is our favorite video - we love the song as well smile

Felicity has only just been able to go underwater without TOO much complaint! Wish we knew these techniques much earlier!

I couldn't have imagined that babies could swim like they do in the videos. I'm really impressed! Thanks to all of you for those fantastic videos. I had never thought about teaching my baby how to swim before but after having seen those videos I am really thinking about taking my baby to some swimming lessons.
It's a shame summer is coming to an end because I suppose this is the best season to start swimming learning ( because of the good weather)

My DS started the infant swim program when he was 6 months old.  It was the first lessons taught in Michigan.  Our classes were in February and held indoors at the local hotel.  I suggest visiting www.infantswim.com and you can type in your zip code and see what's available in your area.

Hi there, I have just showed my son these swimming clips.  He was so enthrolled as was I!  Thanks for sharing these.  We haven't started any sort of swimming lessons.  My son loves water though - will have to make a plan!
