I know several of the board members here have young children and grand children. I will warn you though the first part of the video will make you pucker a little. At least it did for me.

Pretty amazing, that's something that should be an offered course for all parents with new babies!!!

edit: I must be cross eyed, I didn't notice the title till you mentioned it!!!

Had my twins in swim class since 7 months. However who does not have a safety fence around their pools these days. Lots of water hear in Florida.

Fantastic! We had our kids swimming very early, but not THAT early.

Unforunately, I have sunk like a rock for as long as I can remember (no end to my frustration in ~3rd grade swimming class when the instructor kept insisted I just wasn't arching my back enough to float properly... I'm convinced I held the perfect arch while lying on my back ON THE BOTTOM OF THE POOL.). Maybe those new-fangled disposable diapers and synthetic fleece jammies add some floatation over the old 100% cotton firebombs we used to wear.

This is interesting and a great idea. My daughter enrolled my grandson in a very similar class at the local YMCA, money well spent

My mom used to teach that at the Y. Her grandkids could swim before they could walk. It was awesome having that piece of mind when they were toddlers.

That is amazing... we have had our kids in the parent & tot lessons as early as they will let us. That being said, I know that they could not do what is shown in that clip. Something that should be available to all parents, IMO.

That is great! Especially knowing that my first born is due in 13 days. I checked out the website and already found classes in Indy. I plan on getting her in the water this summer, but I will have her enrolled by 6months.
