We Have A Water Baby

| June 23, 2012

We went swimming for the first time today with Imogen… and she absolutely loved it!

I know a lot of parents who take their babies swimming from a very early age.

This is something I looked into, especially with the very popular Water Babies Classes.

I almost signed up for the classes, but with a young baby you just never know what’s going to be going on or how they’re going to be feeling on the day. Signing up to a term of 10 weeks with a set day and a set time each week to go swimming seemed a little too regimented for us.

So having decided to leave the big swimming pool experience until Imogen was older, we now know it was the best decision we made for our baby.

Imogen’s always loved bath time and has had plenty of time to get used to water, splashing about and having her hair wet.

She had such a happy and confident time kicking around and splashing in the pool with Mummy and Daddy.

It was no surprise that after 30 minutes she began to yawn and we decided it was time to call it a day!

There are plenty of pools in London for babies and children, many of these pools are heated. You can find out more about swimming pools for babies and children at Kids Fun London.
