Teach Baby To Swim With SwimWays Baby Spring Float

Spending summers at our cottage, I grew up in and around the water. Our cottage was just steps from the lake and we had direct access to swimming, boating, and fishing. We’d head to the lake once school ended and would spend most of our summer vacation there. Spending summers at our family’s lakefront cottage I realize the importance of swim safety and teaching my children how to swim.

National Learn to Swim Day – May 19, 2018

SwimWays realizes the importance of water safety and the benefits of learning to swim. They founded “National Learn to Swim Day” in 2012 and every year on the 3rd Saturday of May is National Learn to Swim Day. This year it will be held on May 19, 2018.

My husband never learned to swim as a child and didn’t learn how until we had children. Not knowing how to swim often made him feel uncomfortable and he missed out on many pool parties and beach trips. We taught my two older children to swim using the Swimways Swim Steps products and plan to teach our youngest this summer with the Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy.  Knowing how to swim an important skill that he will be able to use his whole life not just for family fun and cooling off in the warm weather but it can also be life saving.

Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy

The Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy is the #1 selling baby float in the U.S. for babies 9-24 months. It features a large circumference for added stability and dual air chambers that are covered with fabric and a soft mesh seat. It can be used with or without the removable canopy that offers 50+ UPF sun protection.

The mesh play space is perfect for toys and for splashing water, getting baby familiar with water and the cause/effects of splashing.



The Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy deflates easily and folds flat into three compact circles for portability and storage. One of my favorite features of the Baby Spring Float is how portable it it. It folds up within seconds and can be placed into the included carrying bag for easy travel. I can easily pack it when we travel to different hotels for hockey tournaments or for when we visit friends or go to the beach.

    This is awesome. We have a pool, and I wish that I had something like this to help my daughters when they were younger how to swim and get used to the water. I will keep this in mind for a baby shower gift. Most of my friends have pools here in Florida, so this is a perfect gift.
