Yeay I can swim now. Every weekend I’ll bring the whole family to swimming pool at Kelab Tasik Putrajaya, Precinct 8. This is private pool that only open for members. Swimming with baby and toddler is quite troublesome and challenging.
First thing you need to make sure they are in good mood. Like Amirul, he need almost 30minutes to heat up himself to go into the pool while Widad we can immediately put her in the pool. Put the exciting mood by splashing the water or bring along their bath toys or any swimming tools aid like board, float. Do not drag them and put in the water, they may feel phobia and trauma. Don’t forget to make sure they already eaten before go to swim. Swimming makes babies hungry.
Don’t forget to bring this :
- Bottle feeding necessities : Milk, Warm water, Bottle
- A towel
- A snack
- Appropriate clothes (I usually bring sleeveless shirt. Widad and Amirul use to sweat a lot after swimming)
- Swimming tools aid : float, board, goggle
