Default Infant Swimming Resource

Don't know anything about it except for the video, but...

Can your child swim?

Pretty amazing stuff

My girls swim like fish thankfully as they take after their mother and not me

I think my hair would fall out if I ever saw my kiddo in the pool at that age even if she knew how to float and swim. Cool vid though.

OH MY GOSH!

I almost threw up, my stomach was turning and my brain is SCREAMING, GET THE KID outta the pool!

Amazing! Absolutely amazing! I grew up in Florida and so many babies drown from carelessness that is truly sad.

That video is amazing!

I have to go calm down now...

Pretty cool!!! I'm watching and all i'm thinking is where are this kids parents!!! I can see him making it into the pool, but as all of us know with toddlers it's much more scary when it's quiet.

This vid was on mud too. Somone said they put their infant through the course and it works. plus the to pass the course the instructor literally tosses the kid in and they have to float. The only downside is you have to practice later on as they forget down the road. I'll do swimming with sophia here soon. If i had a pool or she was at someones regularly that had one i'd do it but right now i don't have that issue

FYI for those on the Southside with little ones...I sent this to the wife and she told me that the Rec Centers in HR offer this course.
