National Baby Swimming Week 31st October

The first-ever National Baby Swimming Week runs from Monday 31 October, urging mums and dads across the UK to take their little ones to their nearest swimming class for some fun family time, as well as gaining a host of health benefits along the way.

Research by Waterbabies has shown why many families are heading to the pool, with some babies as young as one-day old attending classes. They teach babies and toddlers a potentially life-saving skill, help with bonding, build physical strength, as well as their mental and social development. Plus, it’s great fun judging by the magical smiles on their faces…

Celebrities across the UK are also taking the plunge with their babies and toddlers, such as Coleen Rooney, Sam Faiers and Kristina Rhianoff.
