Summer Swimming for Babies

0 Comment

June is literally here and I’m not going to lie, I’m loving the summer vibes, but I can’t believe my littlest baby Eli is already 7 months! Give me a second while I go ugly cry!

Eli is over half a year old and I’m stoked to do all sorts of activities with him and Kaden. Here in Central Florida most days our weather can be unpredictable, nonetheless, it’s always HOT. Making swimming one of the top summer essentials. Lately, we’ve often used our Infant Baby Spring Float by Swimways! I am getting Eli fully comfortable with our pool by taking him in every other weekend. He’s absolutely loving it!

Swimways For The Win

The brand Swimways is one of the top leading industries that promote water safety and proper swimming skills. We were sent this particular Infant Baby Spring Float because it is designed for infants 3-9 months of age. Eli has been introduced to the water since he was about 4 months old. Thanks to the Infant Baby Spring Float it was a fun and positive experience for him! He feels secure and supported in the seat while it cradles him and creates a comfort level of water interaction. Personally, this is incredibly convenient for moms that like to hang out in the pool too, you don’t have to worry about carrying baby the whole time!

Swimming Tips for Babies

Our oldest Kaden was a natural water baby, but Eli wasn’t so fond of it when we introduced him for the first time.

  1.  I would suggest purchasing this Infant Baby Spring Float for newborns. That way they aren’t exposed to the sun (SPF of 50+) and they’ll feel close to mom/dad/etc.
  2. Gently splash water on their legs to help get them more comfortable, Eli found it soothing when I rubbed water on his chunky thighs.
  3. If it’s the first time, try to get them in the water when there’s not much commotion going on. If you’re on vacation or family gathering, I’d take them to a less busy section of the pool.
  4.  It’s okay if they freak out lol. You won’t want to force it. If baby isn’t happy with the experience, just try again another time!

We can’t wait to keep using this throughout the summer here in our pool and our family outings too! Eli is simply the happiest and calm little babe when hanging out with his brother and I at the pool. I’m glad he truly enjoys it! Do you have a specific item or method to teach your babies how to swim?
