How to introduce your baby to the water


“Watch as Parents Magazine shows you how to make your baby’s first swim experience fun and safe. Pick the right time and place when introducing your baby to the water. Going in the morning may have less people in the pool and hopefully your baby will be well-rested. Acting confident in the water will reassure your baby that she is safe. Try dipping your baby’s toes in the water so she can get used to it against her skin and the temperature. Bring a water-proof toy or play a game to make the experience fun. If your baby becomes upset get out of the pool. She might not be ready yet, but try again in a month or so.”
