Baby doing passive exercises before swimming can not only promote the baby’s nervous system and promote the baby’s physical development.

Moreover, passive exercises before swimming can also help the baby warm up, achieve the effect of blood circulation, can prevent the baby from cramping during swimming and avoid accidents.

3 Strictly control the water temperature and room temperature

Generally speaking, the water temperature of the baby swimming pool in winter is 38 degrees and the room temperature is about 28 degrees. Such a temperature can not only ensure the comfort of swimming, but also prevent the baby from catching a cold due to low water temperature or room temperature.

4 Pay attention to swimming time

Some parents may think that it is okay for the baby to swim in warm water for a while in the cold winter. However, the longer the baby swims, the better.

Because staying in the water for a long time will increase the chance of baby’s skin infection, so baby should not swim for too long. Generally, it is best to control it at about 10-15 minutes.

Therefore, the baby should be taken care of in time after swimming.
