If you have a little one I am sure you know that they can either love or hate the water. SwimWays aims to help make that transition to the water easier and helps babies enjoy pool time and love being in the water. It is a great product to make that initial introduction to the water for baby.
National Learn to Swim Day is May 16th, and what better way to celebrate that than with Swimways Swimways has a whole line of floats that help children become confident swimmers and lets face it- teaching your children to swim is a life saving lesson so the sooner they learn the better! This is why they created Swim Steps- which is a variety of products to help kids learn to swim and become more confident swimmers.
Colton started swim lessons at just 4 months at our local YMCA. I thought it was important for him to love the water and enjoy swimming at a young age, so this is why I started him that young. We kept up with swim lessons and now at age 5, he is a great swimmer (thanks to our favorite swim instructor, Miss Cheri). I also give credit to Swimways because their Spring Float was what we used even back then for Colton in our own pool. He just loved being in it in the pool
I am very glad that Colton learned to swim at an age because when he gets excited he is definitely a bit fearless and sometimes that fearlessness turns into danger when he decides to do something like…. run ahead of mom and jump into the deep-end of the pool while we were at a water resort last summer. He was only 4 at the time, and a small 4 so I am sure the lifeguards didn’t think he could swim, but he jumped in (gave mom a scare), and immediately swam to the surface and I pulled him out. The lifeguard that was standing there was getting ready to jump in after him (as was I had he not swam to the surface so fast)– but luckily- he was able to swim and no life saving measures needed to be taken that day
