What exercise is appropriate for new babies (0-3 months) This is related to the baby swinging video that was shocking to see.
talks about techniques for baby swiming that sound much less intense than the swinging featured in that highly disturbing video.
Swimming is another one that seems contraversial. Some parents plunge new babies right into the water and some won't bring their baby near a public pool until they have had at least two sets of immunizations. For my baby I brought her to swimming lessons starting when she was 4 months old and we dunked the babies under water. She is now a very competent swimmer at almost 1 year old and I can dunk her under and have her swim to a friend standing just in front of me.
What did you do with your kids when they were new born babes?
What would you do if you had another?
