We are very excited to share with you some Little Swimmers Top Tips and Giveaway of a years supply Little Swimmers swim nappies too!

Olympic swimming champion and Huggies Little Swimmers brand ambassador Rebecca Adlington is already taking her baby daughter Summer swimming, and hopes to encourage other parents to take the plunge with their little ones. Here she shares her five top reasons to get in the pool:

1.I loved being in the water from a young age and my sisters and I were fortunate to have parents who took us swimming every Saturday. It was the most fun we had as kids and created lots of wonderful memories. And it doesn’t cost a fortune!

2.Swimming is a life skill everyone should have – it could save your life one day as well as being great for your health and wellbeing. I’d love Summer to follow in my footsteps but whatever she decides to do, I’ll be happy as long as she’s a confident swimmer. Just like my parents, Harry and I plan to take her swimming every week.

3.Getting back in the water is empowering for new mums as well as being a great confidence booster.  It’s easier said than done, but women should try not to worry about their post-pregnancy figure and instead embrace spending time with their new arrivals. It’s also worthwhile remembering that swimming is a fantastic all over body exercise which can help tone your body. You actually burn 300 calories for every 30 minutes of swimming, which is why it is one of the most effective forms of cardiovascular exercise.

4.Swimming is one of the few activities you and your little one can actually participate in and enjoy together – it provides that real special bonding time for parents and children.

5.Once you’ve been swimming with your baby a few times you’ll realise that it’s a huge amount of fun and really not much hassle. Preparation is key of course and a well-packed swim bag can make it even more enjoyable. I never leave home without Huggies® Little Swimmers, which won’t expand or leak in the water, a change mat and oversized towels to wrap up in when we come out of the pool.

  2. Dexter was 3 months old when we first started taking him to swimming lessons. I would definitely recommend it and I really do think it has helped his water confidence. He loves being in water now and we regularly take him to our local pool.

    Great give-away, thank you for hosting.

  4. I completely agree, swimming is such a good activity to get youngsters into – and the younger the better! I took our little one to Waterbabies as soon as he turned three months and he loves the pool now. He’s fine putting his head under and isn’t scared at all. It’s also something we can all do as a family.

  5. I love your point about mothers and babies swimming together, and sharing in the activity. Such a lovely thought! I went about 4 years there without stepping foot in a swimming pool, but once I got back in I realised how much I’d missed it!

  9. Know so many mums that take their babies swimming, we haven’t yet but I can’t wait until he is old enough so we can take him to water-parks and such. Will be going to pools next year I think, or this autumn. 🙂
