Of course you can take some photos during the lesson, it’s a nice memory to keep. However, it is important that you do not include anyone else who does not want to be in the picture, if you take a picture you have to sneak away a little so that only those who want to be photographed are in the picture. We also ask you to respect everyone in the pool and not to disturb the teaching.
We want to maintain high water quality, so it is essential that everyone showers before entering the pool. Everyone must shower without swimwear and some facilities also require swim caps.
Children under the age of 1 do not need to shower as they get cold quickly.
All children are born water-loving and with a natural attitude to water, but sometimes something may have happened to frighten the child or the parents may have overcome their own fears. Children are experts at reading their parents’ emotions. If the child is sad in the water, it is very rarely the water itself that is the cause, but almost always hunger and fatigue.
No, baby swimming does not give your child an ear infection. No water reaches the middle ear. The ear canal is narrow, crooked and covered with a water-repellent wax. The eardrum sits like a wall between the ear canal and the middle ear. Ear infections are caused by bacteria migrating up to the middle ear from the throat via the ear drum and not via the outer ear.
We encourage the use of a disposable swim diaper and a baby bathing suit. The important thing is that the baby swimsuit is tight around the waist and thighs. We have this for sale at the start of the course.
Yes, the baby’s ear canal is only a few millimetres in diameter. Very little water reaches the eardrum. Several studies have shown that the risk of infection is even higher if you use earplugs, as they could block out any infections. The question of whether you can dive with a tube in your ear is more difficult, but all the evidence suggests that the shallow dips you make with your baby during baby swimming do not affect the ear. In addition, the child should always choose when and how deep to swim underwater.
