We just had our second swim lesson with our 9 week old this weekend, and it was so much fun! Just a suggestion to check out for other parents since I never would have thought of on my own! (thanks for making me think of this post @chopsuey119

There is a local swim school that offers free swimming lessons for babies 4 weeks to 6 months. A friend started going with her son, and thought it would be fun for us to go together. Any activity to get me to get dressed and out the door these days is a good thing.

It isn't anything hardcore, we really just float the babies in the water with different exercises, but I can see the building blocks for bigger skills later on, and it is nice to meet other parents- even if you do have to put on a swimsuit postpartum (eek!).

I was watching little girl just over a year old before our lesson, and she was so comfortable in the water, and was even diving under!
