Kids’ Safety In the Pool ( Momimhar posted on June 23rd, 2013 )

We had fun time yesterday at the pool with DD’s aunt and uncle.  Well, only the three got into the water because I wasn’t feeling good yesterday.  Besides swimming, my Darling Daughter (DD) liked playing with the beach ball.  For some reason, I did not think of taking toddler floaties with us.  My little girl could have swam, floated, and splashed the water by herself.

Speaking of swimming, I am thinking of enrolling my little girl to a swimming lesson again this year to keep her swimming interest going.  She did a good job last year even though she would not want to let go of either me or daddy when it was time for us to start the routine.

Today, I noticed when they were in the pool, DD still hangs on to them.  I knew she wanted to stand at the bottom but the depth is 3 to 4 feet.  That is why she clings to us because she is afraid sink.  ‘Glad that the nephew stopped by and brought a swimming vest with floaties attached to it.  It is very important for young children to wear floaties or life vest while swimming in the pool.  And grown up supervision is highly advisable to kids’ safety in the water.  My daughter didn’t like the vest though.  She wasn’t comfortable wearing it.  Maybe because she couldn’t swim and splash properly.  But her aunt and uncle kept her company in the pool.  That’s the sweetest thing.

    It’s definitely a perfect time to go swimming. I find myself nervous about going in the water, vests are great to have.

    The first thing she has to learn is to float on her back—-and maybe you can find a pool that has a spot where she can actually stand with her head above water?

      Hi Michelle, yea that’s should be the first thing I should do is to teach her to float on her back. She’d like that. I am still looking for a place where there is a pool for toddlers that is also close to where we live.

  3. Kid safety in the water is extremely important. My son was awful when he was young he used to just jump in the water no matter how deep. We had to keep him in a life jacket for years because he just loved water so much. I got him in swim lessons and he did great. I think it is a great idea to put your daughter in lessons.

    I have to ensure that i’ll keep an eye on those precious kids for we cant tell when accidents happen.

  6. I agree, whenever my kids are swimming, I am always paranoid that they would drown argghhh.

  7. We have been fighting to get our pool under control, we have had so much rain we can not keep it stabilized. Glad someone is enjoying swimming, sorry you did not feel well. I need to get my youngest swim lessions as well

    we don’t have a pool but I learned that kids love to swim with a bubble in their back. my kids go to the Y for swimming classes and that took the fear of my son when going to the pool because he can float and swim with it.

    we don’t let our kids go swimming without responsible adults present at the pool if my husband and I can’t watch them. You can never tell what can happen in a blink of an eye.

  10. it is always great for kids to learn how to swim at an early age, for safety and it is also a great sport to keep you fit.

  11. It is important for the kids to know how to swim properly. Those vest/floaties are such a big saver!
