3 things you should tell yourself before getting into your swimsuit

It’s swimsuit season, usually a dreaded time for women everywhere, except for the ones whose bodies we ogle over, whose Instagram pictures we stare at until our eyes bleed, and those who make us feel like no matter how many hours we put into the gym or how many calories we count we will never amount to their bikini-goddess-role-modelness. What if this summer though, we learn how to embrace the body we’ve been graciously given, we try instead to become healthier rather than 6 pack toned, we enjoy our family and friends instead of living in the pit of gym-hell, and we tell ourselves a few things before getting into our swimsuit that might actually build us up instead of tear us down.

8 Tips for a Successful First Swim Lesson

Infant and toddler swim lessons are not only a great bonding activity for the whole family, they also teach children water safety, competence and confidence.

Can’t wait to get started? Most swim schools recommend waiting until your baby is 6 months old at the time of their first lesson. Not only are infants that age still very comfortable in the water as it feels natural to them, but they also possess sufficient head control and the ability to regulate their body temperature which makes it the perfect time to get your little one into the pool. 

If you are the mommy of an older baby or toddler perhaps swim lessons haven’t been on your radar – but now invitations for summer pool parties are pouring in, and you are worried about little feet on wet surfaces close to the edges of 8 foot deep pools. 

Whether you have a baby who is still a few weeks or months shy of the half birthday mark or a toddler about to embark on their first water adventure, follow the tips below to make sure that first swim lesson is a success.
