We're celebrating National Baby Swimming Week 2018!

National Baby Swimming Week, which runs from 15 - 21 October in Ireland, is a time to discover the joys and benefits of baby swimming.

Little one’s love swimming! But as well as being really good fun – and potentially life-saving, too – swimming from birth is also excellent for their development.

During their first year of life, a baby's brain grows more rapidly than at any other time, with every movement they make helping to strengthen this growth. And learning to respond to the voice commands used in baby swimming lessons is fantastic stimulation for a newborn baby's brain, so great for their mental development.

Swim over to National Baby Swimming Week to discover all the benefits of baby swimming!

National Baby Swimming Week is brought to you by Water Babies and supported by Swim Ireland, Irish Water Safety and Piccolo.
