Swim 1-2-3!

I came across this video today on YouTube while trying to find some tips on teaching LO to swim. She's 11 months old and has been to the pool several times already. She really enjoys it! I absolutely love to swim and I want her to enjoy it, too! But I am SO scared at the thought of a drowning accident. So I'm hoping to find a way to help her learn early to enjoy the water and not to fear it.

I'll probably give this technique a try at the pool on Friday and see how she does. Should be interesting!

On a related note, I am in serious need of a new swimsuit. Probably of the Tankini variety. Any suggestions?


  1. Oh goodness, that kind of frightens me. I don't know what I'll do when I have children.

  2. i let my girlies do that in the tub, but as soon as they get some water on their face they get startled, jump a little and lose their balance. We haven't been to the pool yet, still think they may be a little too young for chlorine (??). But, we will go soon! Good luck, let me know how it goes.
