This encourages calm swimming, and calm swimming means -a lesser likelihood a child will panic in the event of an emergency.
When this sense of buoyancy is maintained through consistent bath practice at home, www.newbornaquatics.com - pooled with consistent swim classes - this feeling in the water remains with them for life.
