Introducing your little one to water and the wonderful world of infant swimming early on is a great way to begin building a bond with them.

In this week’s episode of First Time Mum’s Chat I’m chatting with Jo Wilson about infant swimming. Jo is the founder of the child-development program in water; Aqua Sensory, and is a Developmental Play Practitioner, Aquatic Tutor and author. Jo also hosts the Aqua Sensory podcast which I highly recommend listening to.

Jo is passionate about what she does and during our chat, you’ll hear her share some great infant swimming tips and insights including:-

  • Whilst doing infant swimming, you need to ensure that 100% of your attention is on your little one whilst they are in the water and why multitasking mustn’t occur.
  • Tips on how to tell when your baby is ready to explore the water further.
  • Why it’s extremely important to understand your baby’s cues and behaviors so you can pick up on their subtle cues.

And much more…
