Floating in water relaxes your baby and is incredibly therapeutic as they have spent 9 months floating in amniotic fluid – it reminds them of being in the womb. As baby’s first exercise – it helps to improve sleep patterns and prevent sleep disorders.
Gentle movement through the water has a positive effect on baby and helps to relieve gas, constipation, cramps and is known to assist babies suffering from colic.
Water is an appetite stimulator and gentle treading is known to assist with baby’s digestion. So if you have a fussy eater – you can look forward to improved eating patterns.
Builds water confidence
Floating isn’t just swimming. It’s freedom. And introducing children to water at a very young age helps prevent a fear of water developing later. Exercises that involve moving independently in water are wonderful for your baby’s confidence.
