Summer is officially here and that means lots of time by the pool.  My girls and I would be poolside from sun up to sun down if it was possible.  But being near water throws in a whole new set of dangers that we don’t deal with on a regular basis.  In fact drowning is the leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States for children ages one to four years old.  It is so important to diligently supervise children while around water regardless of their age.  In addition to keeping a watchful eye on my girls I also enroll them in swim and water safety lessons.  I have always told my daughters that learning to swim is not an option in our home, it is a requirement to keep them safe.  Today I am excited to share some products from a company that is very passionate about promoting water safety as well as helping children learn to swim.  SwimWays actually just celebrated their 6th annual National Learn to Swim Day on May 20th, 2017.

I love that SwimWays makes finding the right product for my children easy as they are divided into three steps as well as including age ranges.  This year we received two products one is a Swim Step 2 Swim Sweater for children ages two to four years and the other is a Swim Step 3 Power Swimr for children ages three to six years old.

Last summer Lilah was roughly 18 months old and to introduce her to the water we used a SwimWays Baby Spring Float (Swim Step 1).  This product allowed her to get more comfortable in the water while staying close to mom and dad.

Of course little ones don’t stay little for long and this year she is now two and half years old which means she has graduated to SwimWays Swim Step 2.  I absolutely love the design of the SwimWays Swim Sweater which provides support while Lilah learns to balance and paddle in two pre-swimming positions – upward and forward stroke.  It is also available in several fun colors plus the sun sleeves add extra UV protection.  Once Lilah stepped into her SwimWays Swim Sweater she left it on the entire time we were at the pool.  She was able to climb up and down the steps with ease and since it fits just like a shirt it didn’t seem to be in her way at all.

Lilah’s older sister, Willow, has moved on to SwimWays Swim Step 3 and is using the Power Swimr this year.

SwimWays Power Swimr includes 9 removable floats so parents can adjust to their child’s swimming ability.  We currently have all 9 floats in Willow’s Power Swimr, but based on how well she was doing at the pool last week I am sure we will be removing a piece or two very soon.  Think of like training wheels for the pool!  Each Power Swimr also has adjustable cords that go up the child’s side and a support strap which goes between their legs for a snug fit.  I love that the Power Swimr does not interfere with Willow’s arms enabling her to work on paddling in a proper forward swimming position.  This SwimWays product is also available in several fun designs.

Do you have little ones in your life that are in the process of learning to swim?  Regardless of their age or swimming ability I know there is a SwimWays product that will help them feel more comfortable and confident in the water.  Be sure to visit Toys R Us for SwimWays products in all three steps.  Have fun and stay safe this summer!
