    Hi

    We want to take Isaac swimming but have no clue what we need to put on him?!! lol

    I know there are special nappies for swimming but what do I put on him floaty wise????? Arm bands? rubber ring? One of them swim suits with the floaty lumps in them? or do I just hold him?

    I have no idea...! Please advise :)

    Lou

    were not taking any thing, as im taking alana to a special aqua tots swimming club, where they train baby to take advantage of their reflex for holding breath and let them swim un aided under water. like a proper water baby, look in your yellow pages as there are quite a few clubs that do it or look on www.aquatots.co.uk

    Have been taking Dom since he was 3 months. Dom wears a floatie, it's a special pair of pants that keep things in and they are reusable.

    I sits in an inflatable chair, which is like a rubber ring but with holes to stick his feet is, so he is fully supported and bobs along.

    Hiya Lou,
    At this stage I would get a floatie (your pool might have them available) but take baby in the water in arms first (sorry if im stating the obvious). If baby has a favourite bath toy you could take that too.

    Our pool runs water confidence classes which are for wee babies and or up to 3 years. The only thing about ours is that Jess is the oldest at 19 months and is hellbent in not doing a thing she is told by the instructor. She is too water confident and wants to do her own thing.

    I hope your first swim goes well!

    Laura

    Thanks :)

    We still havent taken him! He has been to Nonsuch park a few times and today we fed a squirrel that had no ears or tail! How weird lol

    I will post as soon as we have been swimming and let you know how it went. I know Isaac will like it. He loved me having a bath when I was pregnant and he loves his bath time before bed.

    Lou :)
