Eternal glory to the water
It's no secret now that early swimming great benefit to children's body.But to be honest, a little scary the first time with his own hands to immerse your child in the water and ... And what, in fact, to do with the baby on to the usual process of bathing moved into the category of swimming?
If you worry before the new water treatments before embarking on independent home studies with infants, read the professional literature, and even better to ask advice from more experienced mothers and ask anyone of them be present at the first dive.Or the first time to invite home a professional instructor.It will help you master the technique of movements, will explain how to perform support, advise what to do and, more importantly, moral support.Full
same determination and confidence mothers (especially if next to them are dad or grandmother) it is possible to start the first lessons yourself.
start early, you can swim immediately after a baby's umbilical wound healed.During the first three months of life for swimming lessons is quite suitable conventional domestic bath.Although, imagine, there are cases where infants swimmers feel great and swam even in large aquaria!
The most important thing at first - to allow the baby to get used to the water and feel the confidence in it.It is very important to transfer your child calm and confident: if he likes to swim.All the more so before the birth, he remained in that "swimming" in a state of stomach mother.
temperature of the bath is adjusted individually.Water should not be too warm, it relaxes.A child needs to move and move actively!At the initial stage is quite suitable temperature 35.5 - 36 degrees.Then, with every new occupation or through the lesson, you can reduce it to half a degree, and slowly bring to the usual - "Pool" - temperature of 28-29 degrees.Take your time, watch the reaction of the baby.If you see that it's cold and uncomfortable, add warm water.
Immerse the crumbs into the water vertically, gently repeating the words of approval.If the child is calm, put it in a horizontal position on the back as during bathing, firmly supporting the bottom.And finally - start out the main loop of these swimming exercises: wiring throughout the length of the bath, "eight", pushing away the legs of the bath wall.The last exercise, most children perform especially eager and happy smile young swimmer will reward you.
Repeat the entire cycle of transactions, turning the baby on his tummy.Alternate exercises with the basic rocking on the water.This is to ensure that the baby felt better water.
duration with temporary employment must increase - 8-10 minutes in the first weeks of baby's life up to 20 minutes for the third month.But if you notice signs of fatigue (the child is naughty, starts to bend), finish water treatments.
Who is faster
When your child turns 3 months, seriously think about a hike in real pool.Advantages of training in the pool is available: the water level is much higher, keep the child much easier.You'll be in the water with the baby, and not in a tilted position over the bath.
Classes are held no more than 5-6 people in a group, the instructor could be given to each pair of "parent + baby" enough attention.Lesson lasts an average of 45 minutes.First, the instructor explains the exercise and swim with your child.At this time, just watch and try to remember the mentor movement.Then you'll do to repeat its actions under the clear control.Soon the baby will start to swim and dive from the instructor to the mother and vice versa.Typically, the complex includes a number of different exercises.If some of them (eg, diving) you do not like or seem untimely, it is quite possible to miss.
Despite the conventional wisdom that babies infants too need to communicate with their peers, collective swimming lessons completely refute this view.The classes in the pool, even the smallest swimmers are attracted to each other.With pleasure looks at others and even try to copy the actions of their peers.Surprisingly, even the spirit of competition inherent in the three-month babies!
After 6-9 months of regular exercise the child will be able to dive and swim quite independently.By the year the baby is already beginning to understand that it is possible to co-ordinate their efforts to rise above the water to breathe.The main thing - always supervise young swimmer and be with him.It is believed that in the pool with the baby is better to walk 2-3 times a week.But domestic employment can be daily.
