Bonding With Your Baby Through Swimming
Although swimming from an early age promotes water confidence and life-saving skills, one of the most amazing benefits of swimming with your child is the bonding experience it can provide.
Skin-to-skin contact between a parent and child has loads of benefits from birth onwards. It is proven to calm and relax both the mother and baby, regulate a baby’s heart rate and breathing, stimulate the baby’s digestion, regulate their temperature, protect against infection, stimulate feeding behaviour, and stimulate the mother’s body to release hormones that support breastfeeding and nurturing instincts.
