I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for SwimWays. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
My friend Cyndi and I had a party at the pool the other day. We were getting the babies in the pool for the first time and at first they weren’t so sure but after about 15 minutes or so they loved it. I had fun with her 4 year old grandson. We’ve been working with him on getting his face in the water so we can teach him to swim. He had so much fun. He did great putting his face in the water, kicking and swimming (even though he didn’t think he was swimming he was!). He then, with his SwimWays swim jacket on, was jumping into the pool to me over and over again. SwimWays has been helping children learn to swim for over 40 years. They give them confidence and help them stay up while learning! His SwimWays swim jacket definitely helped him feel more comfortable in the water. He’s such a fun, happy little guy.
National Learn to Swim day was on May 16. In my opinion it is so important to teach children to swim. You want all these sweet babies to be safe and be able to float if they were to fall in. So teaching them to float was our first and foremost job. The babies (we had 3 in the one year range) loved the SwimWays floats (the giraffe one was so fun as well as the Baby Spring Float) which you can pick up at ToysRUs. They also loved the SwimWays dog toy that swam in the water while they were floating. It was a nonstop fight over who wanted to hold the dog. It was so cute. My son and daughter were little fish that day. They got to hang out on the big floats when they weren’t helping with the babies. My girl had so much fun with one of the babies. She was playing with her and pushing her around the pool in her float. It was truly a great day. I think we all had a great party. Even Cyndi and I. Although to be honest I was exhausted after we left. Check out my first post I did on the SwimWays baby spring float!
