I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for SwimWays. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
It's a great way to keep cool naturally, and it can be fantastic exercise as well. I don't know about your kids, but my kids took a little extra coaching to get them used to water. Most of them disliked water, even baths, once they were over a couple months old. Orrin isn't a huge fan, but we are getting him used to the water and preparing for National Learn to Swim Day on May 16th!
This was Orrin's first time in the pool. We had been swimming in Michigan's fantastic lakes last summer, but it's been nearly a year and I don't think he remembered enjoying it last year.
He was pretty unsure of the water at first. Once we got him in the SwimWays Baby Spring Float (which is the best on the market, by the way), he really seemed to calm down and start enjoying the experience. It was a great way to reintroduce him to the water!
I'm excited to use the Baby Spring Float this summer on our swimming adventures. It has a great canopy included (which we didn't need to use this time since we were in an indoor pool) that will be fantastic for those sunny, hot days of Summer. The large spring area creates a great safe space to play and splash in the water, and the full mesh seat makes me feel that Orrin is safe and secure in the seat. The Baby Spring Float has two inflatable tubes, one around the seat (the red part near Orrin) and the blue ring around the edge. These were easy to fill, although I had a little difficulty pushing the valve back in while holding Orrin- so I would recommend doing this before you get to the water.
SwimWays great line of products is available at ToysRUs. These products help children become confident swimmers. This year's fourth annual National Learn to Swim day gives us all a way to kick off Summer and keep in mind how important it is to know how to swim. Knowing how to swim can be a lifesaving skill, as well as one that can be really enjoyable throughout life! I know I am a HUGE fan of swimming, it's a great activity to enjoy.
What about you? Do you like to swim? Is it something you want to encourage for your children?
