Did you welcome a bundle of joy in West Chiltington in 2017?
Babies might appear to be able to do very little, beyond crying, eating and delighting us with their smiles. But surprisingly they can have the ability to swim, thanks to a clever reflex called the ‘bradycardic response’ which means they instinctively hold their breath underwater.
Although this skill shouldn’t necessarily be used during swimming lessons, it is nonetheless an awe-inspiring ability, that sadly disappears after one year.
Build your baby’s water safety skills.
Learning to swim early is one of the best ways to build your baby’s confidence around water. Babies who swim also have better balance and find it easier to grasp things. So, if your baby is still rolling around rather than sitting, swimming could make a difference.
It’s also been proven to improve their motor visual skills and even their learning abilities.
