We finally brought the little baby to his first baby spa session.
At 7 months old, the ladies there told us he was a tad old to be starting the swim. They usually encourage people to start their babies at about a month old because apparently at that age they still remember how it felt to be in the womb and will take more easily to the water.
Ted was indeed very unhappy with the float that was secured around his neck. He struggled for a bit with the float before crying for help. We had to switch him to a sitting float which he seemed to enjoy a lot. Before we took him out of the water we let him try the neck float again but met with more protests.
We’ll be back to try the baby spa again because we really want him to get used to the water. Hopefully he’ll take better to it next time!
