As always the Baba indaba is a great place to see what is happening in the world of baby business and this year felt a bit like a wet squib but did not completely disappoint.
My baby used to love the water and couldn’t wait for our weekly swim lesson, now she clings to me like a monkey, screams and refuses to take part in anything! What have I done wrong, why has she suddenly changed?
I am often asked about this and I always find that parents are surprised at the amounts of benefits Baby and Toddler Swimming has in store for them. Everyone just thinks of the obvious one and let’s be honest the most important, i.e., to safe guard your child around water.
As a new parent, everything about babies is new and daunting so it is understandable that it is hard to believe that #swimming from birth, and taking your baby underwater, is one of the most natural things in the world.
