Huggies Little Swimmers Giveaway!


Back in June I introduced you to the Swim Savvy Campaign and how we as parent's can make the swimming experience less stressful, and more enjoyable by simply following the 9 Swim Savvy Guidelines! 

Let me refresh your memory as to what those guidelines are...

1.    Always put a swim nappy on your little one before going into the pool Huggies® Little Swimmers® have unique leak guards to avoid little accidents escaping as well as easy open sides to make change time as hassle free as possible
2.    Avoid swimming if you or your little one has had a tummy upset in the past 24 hours
3.    If you are going on holiday, it’s a good idea to get your little one water-ready first – even if it’s just splashing a little water over them in the bath
4.    Stay by your little one at all times – not only is it safe, but it also helps form a close bond
5.    Maintain eye contact with your little one, smile, relax and drop down to the same level – your baby will love seeing you splashing too!
6.    You may want to have your partner or a friend with you when you first start swimming, just whilst you get used to handling a wet baby
7.    One of the best ways to get into the pool is to lay your baby safely on the poolside, enter the water and then lift him in
8.    To help baby relax, keep your baby's face close to your own and maintain eye contact
9.    If you are new to baby swimming go during off-peak times or earlier in the morning if you are on holiday - it makes the entire experience less stressful and enjoyable
