At 6.5-months-old, this baby has already learned how to float on her back. This is a maneuver that could very well save her life someday. Perhaps the most incredible part of this is simply that she can do it without any assistance or prompts from anyone!
Just getting comfortable with the water…
How do you know if the time is right for your baby to learn how to swim? If your child is good at following directions, physically coordinated so they can kick and paddle at the same time, and they are emotionally ready as well. They are ready. In the earliest stages of swimming development, the emphasis is on getting comfortable in the water and safety.
Taking the plunge all on her own.
Flip on your back and float!
