It may still be spring, but it sure feels like summer. We are living it up, and are so ready for the long summer nights and weekends spent all day by the pool. I remember as a kid, we started in swim lessons and began to swim at such a young age. Our days were filled by the pool, where my sister and I would pretend to be mermaids splashing about. When my son was born I knew I had to get him involved in swim, and we did at just 3 months old!
I found it so very important to teach my little ones to swim at such an early age, as there are pools, lakes, and bodies of water all around. We began at a simple water babies class, then went on to a parent tot class, and a then to a group class of about 4 kiddos. I find it very important, even if you don’t live near a body of water–to teach your kiddos how to swim. At some point in their life they will be near a body of water and can save their lives.
When at home, I love using the SwimWays Baby Spring Float Activity Center with my babies and allowing them to explore the water. This May, I’m partnering with SwimWays, who is an industry leader in helping children learn to swim. I’m here to tell you about National Learn to Swim Day coming up on May 19th, that was created by SwimWays in 2012 to educate parents and kids about water safety and the benefits of teaching your children to swim.
I have used the SwimWays Spring Baby Float Activity Center every year since my littles were born. It is the perfect float for babies 9-24 months and is the #1 selling baby float in the U.S. I have always loved that is has a large spring for added stability, and the canopy for our Florida sun is a definite plus! My little ones have always loved splashing in the mesh play space, that allow for toys. It then folds up into a compact carry bag.
I love having the SwimWays Baby Spring Float Activity Center for when I am working with my older son on his swimming skills. I don’t have to worry about my little guy jumping in on his own, and he can kick himself all around the pool with us. He loves the interactive octopus play station, that keeps him busy when his brother wants all the attention. Including a squeaker, rattle, stacking rings, teether, and a soft touch star.
I love that we can use this SwimWays Baby Spring Float year after year for friends, family, and even my own baby. Grab yours SwimWays Baby Spring Float at Activity Center at Target or the Canopy Baby Spring Float here.
