    baby swimming class

    i've called and checked YWCA and they won't take babies under 1 yr old for the swimming class.

    for Harry's it's too far for me, and besides their CS attitude...don't want to mention anymore, the worst i've ever come across.

    yet still there are 2 options we could chose from for baby (starting from 4mths old) swimming class...yet they r both Cantonese speaking class.

    I 'm curious - are there any risks taking babies for swimming? what about ear/eye infections? Would they know NOT to drink the pool water? Not entirely concerned about "technique" 9 asif that would matter for babies) as I used to swim competitvely, but more concerned about safety and sanitation. have no idea ....

    My daughter will join the ywca, Mac donald rd start from wed. She is 10mths old. I enquired is it possible to enroll younger infants (like 9mths onwards), the one who is in charge of swimming prog (Mr. Lai I recall) claims it shouldn't be a problem Assuming parents who are participating will keep an eye on their babies along with the instructor supervision.

    I did few trials with my daughter already in the last couple of days, putting up a paddling pool at home plus clubhouse swimming pool in order to get use to the water level. She felt so nervous and grumpy at first and now enjoy the split splashing and lying in the water outdoors. Once she sees the pool, she will pointing it and starts babbling !

    From what I know, baby never unfamiliar with water/ fluid as they were in the womb for 9 mths!! I find babies at this stage are very courageous in general and willingly to try everything! Why don't I train her to swim now instead of the time when she has all the thoughts/ worries about safety and sanitation? That's my 2 cents..

    babies "swim" for 9 months in-utero...of course there's no chlorine in the womb.

    i took my son for a swim the first time when he was 10 weeks old! he still loves the water and we're planning on having proper lessons now that he's older.
