Babies diving underwater at 8 weeks! Must see...


The introductory video to the New Active Baby Swimming Course, with my voice...


New interactive baby swimming course for baby swim teachers,
Active Baby Swimming online video course is different from traditional baby swimming programs in the US in that the main objectives are not drown-proofing or swimming skills but the development and well being of the baby through the medium of water. And, that parents are encouraged to start baby swimming right after birth, from the time the umbilical cord is healed.  

Babies are reaping the benefits of baby swimming in Denmark while   parents in the US are told not to put our babies underwater until 6 months and even later!  We are discouraged from starting swimming early, waiting until our child is ready, oh! and don't let your baby swallow water...

In the first baby swimming lesson, you and your baby will perform several dives the first lesson.  You will also learn how to hold your baby in the water for various games and activities.  You will have fun and be amazed at what you and your baby can do!

Their success is supported by research on the "diving reflex" of newborn babies, and the evidence of 8 years of enthusiastic parent participation in the Nordic countries.
