Baby swimming in winter

by FAMILY talk0 comments

As the days draw in and temperatures drop, you may be tempted to hang up your baby’s ‘happy nappy’ and hibernate.

But there are many reasons why you should continue swimming in the winter.

What better way for your little one to exercise than splish-splashing in a warm pool. Maintaining exercise as part of their weekly routine (tiring them out!) can help little ones with the challenges of clock changes and early nights. Some research suggests moderate exercise can strengthen the immune system, reducing the risk of coughs and colds.

Swimming is one of the most complete and beneficial activities, and with NHS guidelines stating that infants don’t have to have had their immunisations before they go swimming (even underwater), it’s one of the few things parents can do with a baby literally from birth. And not only is it fantastic for your baby’s health and development, it’s also a huge amount of fun.

At Water Babies, they are extremely proud of their world class teachers, the only ones with a national diploma in baby swimming. They will show you how to teach your baby to swim, building your little one’s confidence and independence in the water and ensuring that safety around water becomes second nature.
