Hi Titarosita. You can start swimming for babies when your child is about 6 months old. However, at this time, children need to be accompanied and this "swimming" condition is more towards children playing in water instead of swimming like we are adults. In general, when children are under 6 months old, they have a reflex when dealing with water they will hold their breath and open their eyes and this reflex itself will disappear after 6 months of age. However, that does not mean they are ready to swim. Then, this child himself has a reflex when you touch your child to the water in the pool, they will move their hands and feet like swimming and again this is not a sign they are swimmers but a reflex from them. You can start introducing this activity by bathing the child in the bath tub as an initial introduction before going to the swimming pool. Children under the age of 1 year are also not recommended to take swimming classes because they are not able to hold their breath well so if they do this water activity, you need to accompany and supervise them.

There are many advantages that exist from inviting your child to play in the water, which is called increasing self-confidence, making children more independent, and improving your relationship with children. Then, help your child's brain development.

Consult your doctor about your child's condition for more information. Regarding their own desires, of course your child's body will try to adapt to the environment by forming heat from the fat in the body. Make sure you take your child to eat about 30 minutes before the activity and do not invite the child to swim in a pool that is too cold. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
