Swimming lesson for babies

Hello,

I am planning to take with my little son swimming lessons for babies.

Does anyone have any feedback about it, especially in Fribourg area?

Any recommendations and tips would be much appreciated!!

Hi RuTia

Swimming lessons for babies sounds like a bit of a rip off to me. Why don't you just get together with some other mums and go to the local swimming baths together?
I wouldn't have thought you need an instructor to have some fun in the water with your baby

Re: Swimming lesson for babies

We went to the group classes with our little one (in Wallis though, not Fribourg) and she loved it. You're right, the public time is not practical...too many new things and people that can drive the child over the edge. Now that she is a bit older (almost 2) she is not scared of the water...or people for that matter so we can go almost any time. I think her initial exposure in a controlled environment helped...but what do I know. Anyway, it's good fun. Enjoy.

I took my baby girl (she is now 6yrs) to a mother and baby swimming course and we both loved it it was very relaxing and we were a small group in a small pool just for us. There was no splashing from other kids and it was nice and quiet we used to call her the water baby now we call her the fish because she loves swimming you can never get her out of the water. I would recommend doing the course.

Have fun and enjoy the experience together

Hi

You might also want to consider going to one of the thermal centers in Switzerland, the water is warmer and normally has less chlorine.

Re: Swimming lesson for babies

i did take my 6 month old son swimming in public pools during public hours..
because the "big girl" was having her "big girl" swimming lession at that time...
if you do a seach on "babyschwimmen" and your area, you will find lots. They are an opportunity to meet people with kids the same age.

If it really does make a difference to their development, i dont know.. but its fun
