Splish Splash-- Beyond the bath!
Spring is underway and as the weather warms up, our thoughts turn to the beach, pools and other fun ways to keep cool. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the Country with lakes, ponds, canals, swimming pools and, of course, the ocean at our disposal. Safety comes first when you’re enjoying the water, especially with children around! Here are some quick tips from the site safekids.org: • Never leave your child unattended in or around water. • Give young children 100 percent of your attention when they are near or around water. • Empty all tubs, buckets, containers and wading pools immediately after use. Store them upside down and out of children’s reach. • Keep toilet lids closed and use toilet seat locks to prevent drowning. It’s also a good idea to keep doors to bathrooms and laundry rooms closed. • Learn CPR. Some experts say that babies can begin swimming lessons as early as 6 months old. These types of classes typically involve the parent and child together in the water, allowing the child to feel comfortable in the water and have fun splashing around. A child is said to be ready for formal lessons when they can listen to and follow directions as well as wait his or her turn. Generally speaking, this is usually around age 3-4. Whether they’re splashing around or learning the back stroke, Baby Posh Garage has the gear you need.
