From the early beginnings, bringing a newborn into the pool water as early as 11 weeks, can help release birth trauma, reset the nervous system and instill deep attachment.
Babies love to swim. The newborn is in a race against time. The baby must gain mobility function before he gains too much weight.
It is a fact that the brain literally grows by use. Newborns can perform very little physical activity, except when in the water. If we are smart about providing appropriate stimulation and opportunity, then teaching the baby will be a joyous process for mother and baby.
