As it is very hot this spring, we decided that it would be a good time for Chhori to start going swimming. Of course, she won’t swim but I wanted her to get used to water.
Normally when she has her bath she loves it so we thought it was a good sign. I bought a few swim suits for her even before she was born. The excitement of having a baby girl took me shopping many times while I was pregnant and on one of those trips I bought a beautiful one piece suit.
To make it easy for her, we went and bought floaters so we don’t need to hold her all the time and she too will be free to enjoy the water.
We got her ready at home with her swimming nappy and the new swimming custom. She seemed excited already.
At the pool I took her into the water so she could get used to it before getting her into the floater. She was a pro, playing and kicking with excitement. The only bad thing was she wanted to drink the water and kept taking her tongue out. 🙂
After a while, we put her in her floater and we swam while she enjoyed floating around. She was thrilled to be in the water and her expression was priceless.
We plan to take her to swim classes soon but in the mean time we just want her to get used to the water so she will learn how to swim quicker when the time comes.
Just a quick question for everyone with kids; what is a good age to send kids to swimming class? And when did your bub start swimming on their own?
Take care everyone till the next post.
