Babies Love Swimming
Babies love swimming! Swimming brings a whole host of benefits for the baby, such as better coordination, more confidence and fun! However, without the right pool float for babies, we end up holding on to babies, which leads to reduced independence in the water. The SWIMTRAINER “Classic” baby swimming float helps your baby to reap all the benefits of early swimming.
Baby Swimming Can Help Promote Pre-school Readiness
Researchers from Griffith University have conducted one of the world’s most comprehensive studies into early-years swimming and have found that babies and pre-schoolers that learn to swim develop “highly valuable skills” that are of “considerable benefit for children as they transition into pre-school and school”.
The study found that babies that learn to swim early in life are up to 15 months ahead of their non-swimming peers in math, counting and language by the time they start school! Early-swimming babies also achieved their physical milestones earlier than non-swimmers, and had better oral expression.
Develop Your Baby’s Confidence in the Water
SWIMTRAINER “Classic” supports your baby in the ideal horizontal swimming position, which allows your baby to float correctly, and move easily and independently. This allows your baby to develop confidence in the water. Before long, your baby will learn how to move forward, turn and stop in the water, while swimming on the SWIMTRAINER “Classic”.
Promotes Independent Play
SWIMTRAINER “Classic” develops independence in the baby. You can help to instil independence in your baby by putting a bath or pool toy in front of your baby and watch them move to reach for the bath toy.
Correct Swimming Position
SWIMTRAINER “Classic” maintains your baby in the correct horizontal 40° angle that professional swimmers adopt. In this position, your baby’s torso is supported by the SWIMTRAINER “Classic”, and his legs are free to move about in the water. Your baby learns that this is the correct swimming position by habituation, and will learn swimming easier.
Promotes the Frog Kick Reflex
Babies from 3 months old have a frog-kick reflex. SWIMTRAINER “Classic” helps to promote and reinforce this natural movement. While on the SWIMTRAINER “Classic”, your baby’s legs are free to move forward, and perform the frog-kick that we associate with the breaststroke kick.
Most importantly, SWIMTRAINER “Classic” helps to strengthen the unbreakable bond between the parent and the child.
SWIMTRAINER “Classic” Fun!
Use it in the pool, use it in the ocean, use it in the lake, or just use it in the tub, SWIMTRAINER “Classic” is fun for your baby!
