    @ms.melli:  I think if you have a pool and have small children it would be crazy not to get these kinds of classes for your child.  That video is amazing and it could really save lives.

    @ms.melli:  I literally just watched this on FB! Yes def. would. My parents have a pool and honestly it scares the crap out of me when they watch her.

     I think it’s a great idea, especially as a tool to survive falling in the water! That being said, if I had a pool in my backyard I would still keep a fence around it and alarms on the outside doors.

    I saw this floating around FB. Hard to watch but I think a infant learning this is so valuable and I would def want my children to learn this especially if I owned a home with a pool in the back yard or my child was around pools often.

    I am actually taking my daughter to swimming lessons at an indoor pool in town when she is old enough. They start them as early as 6 months. I think it is very important. We do not own a pool and have no interest in owning one, but I still think the lessons are valuable. It will also help their confidence when it comes to being in water! That being said…. if she were to somehow fall in a pool like that, I would have a freekin heart attack.

    This is where I am taking her, I just googled baby swim lessons and it popped up:

    Why not, it can’t hurt.   It really makes sense for people with pools or have pools in their neighborhood.  I mean a lifeguard (normally a teenager) has so many people to look after, this seems like a good tool to give your child.

    I saw this on FB and had to watch it twice! Looked scary at first, but the second time around I thought wow, how amazing, and how great is this!

    This is blowing my mind right now. I think it’s a great idea for parents, even if they don’t own pools.

    What’s crazy about not wanting your kid to drown?  I’d absolutely do this!

    That is just awesome – I just sent Darling Husband the link to that video.  I had no idea something like this existed, but I definitely want to do this when we have a baby.

    That’s amazing! I’m definitely adding that to the list of things to do with my kids when I’m a parent.

    That’s awesome.  I don’t know why anyone would be opposed to this.
