I have an Aunt who taught little guys... 12 mo+ how to swim... unfortunately she doesn't live near us. I always thought this was a good idea just in case (God forbid) our little one should fall into a pool or body of water. If they at least know how to float on their backs it gives you that much longer to get to them.... Does Not Mean That They Are Drown Proof!! Always keep a close eye out.... but anyways.

I was looking online and found, with surprise, that alot of people start teaching their little ones to float/swim based on abilities they poses at the moment.

I also found alot of videos on youtube and was considering attempting to teach Chloe myself.

Any of you planning on/doing this already?

Here's a youtube link to a video that explains a little more.

Claire loves the water so we take her to the pool a lot. I've never tried to teach her to swim though. We just let her splash around and kick. They do offer mommy and me swimming lessons here starting at 6 months but she missed the age cutoff this summer. I think we will start swimming lessons with her next year.

We took Cooper swimming this year but haven't done any kind of lessons. I think that sounds like a great idea!

I had seriously considered swimming lessons for Robby, just because he loves the water and I do, too, and I thought it would be a fun bonding thing for us, plus good for him. The classes start at 6 mos, though, and he just hit it, and now I'm about to go back to teaching, so we won't have much time. Probably next summer....
