It's important to be safe around the water and at Infant Aquatics it's our number one priority, we hope that this information answers any concerns you may have about your child's swimming.
Babies can start from 10 weeks. You no longer have to wait until they have had their immunisations, any concerns should be discussed with your health visitor, GP or by visiting www.nhs.uk.
To avoid any accidents babies must wear a double swim nappy. We recommend a swim nappy (either disposable or reusable) and a secure outer layer (i.e. trunks, swim costume, nappy cover).
Although we can only allow one adult per child in the pool, partners, grandparents etc are welcome to watch.
If your baby is unwell or has a contagious illness i.e. chickenpox, conjunctivitis or sickness/diarrhoea it is not advisable to come swimming. Please allow 48 hours since the last bout of sickness or diarrhoea.
Not at all, in fact it may increase your own confidence in the water. All pools are approximately chest height or lower.
We do not push or pull our babies under water but will show you safe techniques to enable your baby to swim with their face in the water when they are ready.
Safety is our priority at Infant Aquatics so please ensure you...
N.B. We are not medical professionals and you should always seek advice before coming swimming as every baby is different.
