WHY the Manual on Baby Swimming?
Swimming is not only a fun activity for summer months, but an important life skill every child should master – starting from a very early age.
That is why none of the possible fears or excuses is big enough to prevent you having a unique experience and joy with your baby in the water, which usually takes about two and a half years and can never be repeated or corrected.
