Benefits for you
And the benefits for you?
Nurture the bonding process between you and your baby
The skin-to-skin contact of holding your baby in water is, quite simply, a fantastic bonding experience It’s also amazing seeing your little one swim to you underwater (if you’re happy to pop your head under the water with a pair of goggles on). While activities like helping them to float on their back as you sing ‘twinkle, twinkle, little star’ while gazing down at them, and the trust they develop in you as the lessons progress, all enhance that bond even further.
Improve your overall wellbeing
When your life is suddenly turned upside down with the arrival of a new baby, it can sometimes be difficult to motivate yourself to get out of the house.
Having a structured activity to go to each week helps give you that little push you might need - plus you get to meet other like-minded parents and form lasting friendships as your babies grow.
What’s more, your baby’s not the only one who’ll get a workout – all that lifting them in the air and swirling them round is all good exercise for you, too!
