7 Tips to Make Your Baby's First Swim (& All the Ones After) Go Swimmingly for Everyone!

Baby’s first swim is an exciting and fun time for parents. But it's also a good idea to expose kids to swimming early for safety reasons. 

  • Consider swim diapers and a body-protecting swimsuit for your baby. 
  • Apply sunscreen if swimming outdoors.
  • Be ready to bring your baby to a shower or bath immediately after to remove the chlorine from their sensitive skin. 
  • Be sure to keep Baby (and yourself) sufficiently hydrated before, during and after the swim. 
  • Babies tend to be hungry and tired after a swim, so be prepared with whatever you need to soothe them. 
  • Infant floats are a great way to introduce Baby to the water. But never leave them unattended in a float!
  • Always supervise children when around water!

Get some rest after your fun dip in the pool. You and Baby will probably need it!

Thanks for sharing this! Swimming is also good for eczema skin, helps to kill the staph bacteria that often colonizes eczema skin. Have a good week everyone!
