The most precious things in the world are our children, and even more so when they're at their youngest and learning like sponges. Speaking of sponges - our babies can learn to swim at incredibly young ages (my mother keeps telling everyone I learned to swim at 8 months!)

Well, there is one thing that's common between divers and our young swimmers - and that's safety!

Watch this video and you'll be just as amazed as I was. Whether you're a parent of toddlers or not, I'm sure you can appreciate the wealth of concern, time and effort put forth to raising our futures!

my boy just turned 1 over the weekend...

i saw this video for the first time about 3 months ago. I thought it was amazing then too.

I don't think I need to send my child all the way to Arizona however to learn this lifesaving technique. At such a young age, the water is still a familiar environment for babies. My son loves the water, loves taking a bath - i like thinking it's because we got him in the pool at 6 months.

Amazing! Having 3 little ones aged 4 and under, pools and lakes are truly a concern.

Just FYI, there are certified ISR trainers all over. You can locate them on this site: http://www.infantswim.com/home.html

thanx for that, i didn't know.

(fyi - there's not an instructor within 100 miles of my zip code, according to the search at provided link - the closest to me is 151 miles from here, at Seven Seas Dive Shop in Baton Rouge, LA)

i wanna be an instructor!

that way i can teach my own kid this maneuver without having to pay for their service :cwmddd:

That is amazing. Infant death due to drowning is a real concern in Phoenix due to all of the pools here

maybe that's why ISR is headquartered in Phoenix?

My son was in the water at 6 months, my daughter was a summer baby and was in the water at 6 weeks. they are both water rats. but then I marrried a lifeguard/water rat and he did not know how to keep them OUT of the water.
We taught them how to hold their breath underwater. we kept swimmies on them because they did not float very well . they are both lifeguards and have been on swim teams.
