Awesome post!! Go Damien, Go!!!We did a program called Infant Swimming Resource with our 3.5 yr old son and he did awesome and loved it. We couldn't afford to do it with our daughter, but this summer she has blossomed into a fishy by following what her brother does and always wanting to do what he does. I was actually using some of your tips from the Doman book and I didn't even know it. My husband and I love to do the "baby pass" game with her and she enjoys going under water. I am so excited to use the other techniques you describe when we are at the pool the rest of the summer. Thank you so much for writing it. Great pictures too!
Great, Great Article! Thank you so much for sharing! We started our daughter in swim lessons @ 7 months old http://trulydedicatedmommy.blogspot.com/2012/07/our-9-month-old-swimmer.html She loves the water. She is 10 months old now and we can dive her under and let her go a second and she does great. We are going to try some of the things in your article too! Thank you again!
Great Read!! My little 15 month old loves the water and has been in it all summer, loves to jump in the water and go under but I get really nervous since I don't know CPR.
Thank you for your comments!
