    Baby Swimming?

    I would like to share my experience during my post-natal period, my husband and I found a bit frustrated with my baby's crying and her irregular sleeping pattern. Luckily, my friend recommended to let my baby (1 month) start some exercises in water for 8-10 minutes! She found it fun and enjoy the freedom by wearing the baby swimming neck ring. She could control movements all by herself in the bath tub. She is happy with it and after swimming she could eat more and take a peaceful sleep.

    that is great news! I have always found water calming (esp a nice warm bath) for both adults and babiesa/toddlers so you may have hit on a discovery but just for your info, at 1 month old, babies that age do cry (for no particular reason) and have irregular sleep patterns!

    Yes, babies do so relax in warm water without control from their parents. You would find her totally count on that neck ring like a cushion and kicking their little feet as a froggy. The most important is to keep appropriate room temperature and assure feeding her after swim. Take some photos and video. It's also a great fun for the whole family. Best wishes,

    I got the neck ring from a swimming coach. You may take a look of the following website: www.mambobaby.net.

    Just saw the photos. I don't think I would feel comfortable using the ring.

    Can't see the photos as the website seems to be down, but I don't see a special need to use an inflatable. It's easy to take baby swimming without and you provide the support; it's nice and close too.
