Who has done them with their LO? How did they do

I wanted to do them last year, but that just didn't happen, then I wanted to do them last month, but DH never got us signed up.
But we officially start tonight! (of course it's going to 103 with a heat index of 110)

We're doing them right now with Savannah - and she LOVES them....our swim school has a whole strategy of teaching the infants/toddlers to swim in a way that emphasizes safety in case they fall into water unexpectedly (i haven't decided what I think of that yet, but they have a whole model built on it). She already holds her breath 7 seconds underwater and can swim a very small distance (no floaties or anything) underwater to us after jumping into the pool.

This swim method has kids as young as 2 (one of her friends of daycare is this advanced) swiming entirely by themselves w/o parents in class. It's kind of crazy to watch actually...Savannah's nowhere near that point, but she's definitely enjoying the lessons and I'm happy she's not afraid to go underwater, etc.

Good luck with your class tonight & let us know how he liked it!

Savannah Stylin!

Lara - that is a different plan for teaching that I've heard of, but makes sense in that you would want them to know what to do if they unexpectedly fall in. I bet it would be strange to see little ones that young without their parents in the pool. I don't know if I (as the parent) would be that brave.

We haven't done this yet, but may see if we can at some point. Just need to find a place that offers weekend hours that isn't too terribly expensive. I'm sure Mark will love it, he's such a water baby now and loves to play in the water.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

Nolan-first set at 4mos, then 7mos, then 12 and 18, then 3.5years
Elizabeth-one set last year at 22mos
twins-never had enough adults to do them yet

I'm gonna get N and E unparented lessons this fall, then the twins can do unparented in March once they turn three. Joey will get his first lesson when he's 1 or so and things settle down

Lucky mother to five!
