Baby & Me
Survival Swim’s Baby & Me swim lessons are for our infant swimmers and their parents or caregivers. Our instructors will work with you, side by side, giving you techniques to teach your baby the basic needs to survive in the water. Babies automatically know how to hold their breath from ages 0 to 6 months, but they lose this early survival skill if they don’t practice.
Earlier the Better
These early lessons will teach your baby the skill of holding their breath (under water), floating, kicking and just becoming comfortable in the water. By parents learning these teaching techniques, it allows you to feel comfortable with your baby in the water with you. In addition, parents can practice the techniques at home in the bath tub or swimming pool.
The statement, “babies can drown in a bucket of water”, is true because if they lose the skill of holding their breath, they will suck up that water and drown. If you get your little ones in the water early and practice these water safety skills, you can save their life.
