Getting a matching and suitable swim nappy comes in super handy and prevents little mishaps. These special aids are perfectly suitable for teaching your little one how to swim at an early age. Once you have found the suitable water wings and a suitable swim ring, the next trip to a swimming pool, lake or the sea nearby will be fun for parents and children alike. The continuous learning success of your child will increase this fun in the most playful way. More information >
Swimming with your baby without him being equipped with proper swim aids is reckless and dangerous. If babies are not sufficiently secured, the risk of a serious swimming accident increases. As a mother or father, you must make sure that your little one is always secured with water wings or a swim ring. In addition to this, you should also use a swim nappy so that your child can feel comfortable in the water. Children being equipped with water wings, swim nappy and swim ring, can splash happily and safely in the water.
Only these aids ensure that your baby’s first attempts at swimming can be made without taking unnecessary risk. An important feature of your little one’s floaties and swim ring is a good fit. The floaties should sit firmly on the arm, without pressing too hard or even hurting your baby. The swim ring must be small enough so that your child does not slip through it accidentally. Always make sure to keep an eye on your child when you are in the water or at the waterside. Children being protected and attended by an adult is necessary to prevent drowning.
Children can quickly free themselves from their water wings or strip off the swim ring – that is why, it is extremely important to keep an eye on your little one’s at all times. Perhaps everything is going way too fast and your child is silently submerging by the waters and drowning. If you stick to all safety measures, there is nothing in the way of ultimate bathing fun. In most German swimming pools babies are required to wear a swim nappy. As you might have guessed already, this regulation is due to hygienic reasons. Nobody wants excrements to swim around in water. Furthermore, bacteria and germs would spread quickly.
However, the swimming pool is not the only place in which wearing a swim nappy is important. It also turns out to be quite a convenient accessory for bathing lakes, swimming ponds and the sea. It prevents your baby's excretions from spreading in sand and water. Most babies do not defecate in deep waters, that is why you don’t have to worry. Every well trained swimming instructor will inform you that the water pressure acts like a lock on baby's intestine.
We recommend all parents to let their children swim and splash water only when wearing certified water wings and swim rings. Make sure your child’s swim aids are certified with the GS seal (tested safety). If this is the case, you can count on the fact that they are high-quality swim aids which vane been tested for safety and thus have been confirmed as safe products. The wide range of swim aids ensures that you will find the right products. It is up to you to decide whether you want to buy water wings or a swim ring for your child. Even older children who are not yet able to swim, should wear suitable swim aids that provide optimum buoyancy and safety in water.
For the sake of change, it is good if you offer both products to your child. That way, your little one can splash around today with a swim ring and tomorrow with water wings. If you want to teach your child how to swim, you are on the safe side with high-quality swim aids. Always make sure that you never leave your children unattended, until they know how to swim. Even at this point it is important that you keep an eye on your little one. Usually, young children cannot assess situations where they are at risk.
There are inflatable swim cushions you can also use for your child. These cushions, however, are no substitutes for a swim ring and floaties because your baby might be able to hold on to it, but it will not provide any buoyancy in water. In addition to this, your baby won’t be able to do any swimming movements because his arms are on the cushion. Even if your baby is small, he will love to let off steam in water. In order to ensure maximum safety for your child at all times, he must be provided with suitable swim aids. Only after you have equipped your child with a swim nappy, water swings and swim ring, are you ready for your next trip to the swimming pool, lake or the sea and the safe splashing and swimming in water can begin.
Swim aids are the ideal solution for all children who want to learn to swim. These aids also allow beginners to safely float and move in water. In order to avoid accidents and injuries, you need to consider the following aspects when buying a swim aid:
Basically, inflatable armbands, swim rings and the like are available wherever there is water that encourages your little one to splash and play in – such as on holiday, on the beach or in the hotel. However, it is a debatable point whether the swim aids offered in such places really do provide the safety for your child which is required.
