I grew up in Hawaii which means I was basically born in a bikini. There’s a question I always hear that I actually think says a lot about you as a person: Would you rather be able to fly, or breathe underwater? There’s no question for me that it would be breathe underwater (P.S., I was a mermaid in another life). It’s been very important for me to pass on my love for the water to my sweet children. What I have been unprepared for, was the fear that comes with water and babies.
Those sad stories of little ones that have an accident in the pool is heartbreaking and terrifying! How can we as parents make sure that day won’t come for us?? The most important thing is to be prepared! We need to teach our kiddos to swim so they are ready for the pool/beach/lake/backyard; which ever summer brings for you.
National Learn to Swim Day is held the third Saturday of May every year, which means it falls on May 20th, 2017! I signed all my littles up for private swim lessons this month to celebrate, even my 1 year old! To find swim lessons near you, just google it! We take lessons at our city pool. Our pool offers private, semi-private, or group lessons, and I even found a pool that teaches pool survival skills for my one year old. Get on the computer and start your search for lessons right now!
SwimWays is the leader in providing awareness for National Learn to Swim Day and we seem to find ourselves always using their products! Their pool gear is the best bang for your buck and I know I’m always getting high quality and safety conscious products.
The SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy is one of my very favorites. It is the very best baby floaty on the market! We have a pool in our subdivision so I have used one with each of my tiny littles. It is the very best way to transition your baby into the pool for the first time. They learn what it feels like to have their bodies in the water, and still have the ability to kick their little legs. We use it continuously as they grow as well! My Little Man has been hesitant about the pool since the water is a little chilly. He doesn’t even want to try it! I put him in the Baby Spring Float and he realized he could move around safely, got used to the water, and then Loved it!
The Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy is built for durability, as well as safety and comfort, plus they’re super cute! I love the Sun Canopy so much! It protects those sweet faces with UPF 50+, and it can be strapped down, or moveable on top, and yet it always stays right where I want it.
There is also a patented inner spring on the outside edge to make it extra stable, and the double inflatables keep my Little Man safely in the middle. The seat is just the right depth to keep him from being able to climb out, and not deep enough for his face to get into the water. It is perfection.
You can easily buy the Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy at one of my favorites (of course): TARGET. Everything good happens at Target. Get involved with National Learn to Swim Day this year! Leave us a comment below and tell us what you did! Happy Swimming, Friends 🙂
