TweetHello there here is a Questions and answers from Puddle Ducks South all about baby swimming enjoy.
A child learns best through repetition and by having fun, so in every Puddle Ducks Swim Academy class we make sure we address both of these to make sure the children never get bored! Heather though which is me teaches baby signing with TinyTalk and recently won the best pre school class in Leicester as voted by netmums.
So join us on our ride to getting this site up and running, and also on the ride for preparing a amazing baby show, it will be truly remembered.
The benefits to Mum and baby are immense, strengthening the bond through skin-to-skin contact, whilst your baby develops water confidence and an understanding of water safety. Babies under six months of age can experience around 20-30 minutes of swimming before they get tired and cold.  Babies between six months and 12 months may stay in for a little longer but not exceed an hour.
We would advise against them, as floatation aids such as arm bands or rubber rings provide a false sense of buoyancy and restrict movement – if a child should (heaven forbid) fall into a canal or river, they won’t have armbands on and will be unfamiliar with the sensation of open water, so not have the necessary skills. Swimming lessons teach infants how to turn, kick and reach for the side, which become instinctive life-saving skills. The sooner your little one is introduced to swimming, the better, as babies have a real affinity with water having just spent nine months in their own wonderful watery world. It’s a sad fact that in the UK, at least 50 children drown each year – shockingly, drowning is the third most common cause of death in children under 16.


It’s such a wonderful activity and babies have a real affinity with water having just spent nine months in their own wonderful watery world. Qualified and experienced baby swimming teachers will be able to advise parents and when and how to submerge safely. It all depends on how baby feels – if they are upset or cold then they should be taken out of the water and have lots of skin to skin contact. It’s a great idea to have a nice towel poolside to wrap around your little one after a swim, whatever their age. Babies can be taken into the water as soon as their cord has healed (to avoid infection) and when the mother feels able, which is usually from just a few weeks old. Yet 200,000 children still leave primary school each year without the basic skills needed to survive in the water.
Babies can be taken into the water as soon as their cord has healed (to avoid infection) and when mum feels able, which is usually from just a few weeks old. Baby swimming often provides that precious one-to-one time that Dads often miss out on if Mum does most of the caring and feeding. This gag reflex disappears around six months so it is best that baby has been exposed to underwater activities before this time.  If they haven’t then it isn’t a problem – they can still be taught to hold their breath but it is easier to do this if they still have the gag reflex. The benefits to Mum and baby are immense: strengthening the bond through skin-to-skin contact, whilst your baby develops water confidence and an understanding of water safety. At Puddle Ducks, our children learn water safety skills from their very first lesson when they learn to wait for permission to jump into the water, to kick to the surface and to turn and reach to the side.


And on top of nurturing the new relationship, child development professionals claim that babies who receive this early introduction to water are more alert with better eating and sleeping patterns, and develop their brain and cardiovascular and muscular systems more quickly through the free movement that only an aquatic environment allows. Dads and even grandparents can also gain the same wonderful early bonding experience – baby swimming often provides that precious one-to-one time that Dads often miss out on if Mum does most of the caring and feeding.

At every level of Puddle Ducks classes, children will learn to trust the aquatic environment and transform from a child who cries when they have their hair washed to a child who giggles when water is poured over them. We believe that all children have a natural affinity with water and can enjoy the experience of swimming.  In the Puddle Ducks Swim Academy, we teach a natural, efficient and effortless swimming style – and your child can join us even if they didn’t come to our pre-school classes.
We start with simple skills and build on these slowly in accordance with your child’s physical ability and understanding.
