With warmer days upon us, it’s time to enjoy the warmer days and longer nights. As a child, my fondest summertime memories are swimming in the river at my grandparents house. Our whole summer vacation from school was full of days of swimming, boating and sporting events. Sometimes even the rain couldn’t keep my brothers and I from enjoying a fun day on the river. The fun memories and even a few battle scars will always make me smile.
Growing up, my parents taught my brothers and I how to swim early on. Even if you or your kids are not growing up with a body of water in your backyard, at some point they will be around a pool or beach where the knowledge of how to swim will be beneficial. Teaching your little ones how to swim early on can only be beneficial and may even possibly save a life someday.
I’m excited to partner with SwimWays, a leader in helping children learn to swim and water safety, to tell you about National Learn to Swim Day coming up on Saturday, May 20th. National Learn to Swim Day was started by SwimWays in 2012 and is is dedicated to educating parents and children about water safety and the importance and benefits of learning to swim. In the warmer months, we hear of drownings far too often. SwimWays is using National Learn to Swim Day as a way to spread water safety awareness and to teach children to swim.
One of the ways I’m teaching my daughter to swim is with the SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy. This float is absolutely perfect for all little ones who are learning to swim between 9-24 months old. While visiting Tampa, Florida, I took advantage of the warm weather and the hotel pool to teach Madison how to swim with the SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy.
I’m absolutely loving this float! The SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy is Step 1 of SwimWays swim training and focuses on water introduction. This float helps keep your little one balanced and supported in order to become comfortable in the water. Madison wasn’t much of a fan of the pool prior to us testing out the amazing Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy. After putting her in the float she seemed to feel more secure and her confidence grew. The mesh play space is an added bonus for fun. We’re able to place Madison’s favorite pool toys there or she can use it to splash water around.
After a week of splashing around in the pool she is confident and even kicks her fit to swim while in the Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy. The canopy even helps block the bright sun from Madison’s eyes and keeps her shaded away from harmful UV rays. The canopy is even UPF 50+ and can easily snap on and off of the float. There are two great initiatives in one amazing baby float
