If you have a nearby pool, lake, pond, ditch, or other body of water that your child may have easy access to, I recommend you check out the Infant Swimming Resource. The video below which is also on their website shows just how easy it is for a small child to fall into the water. With the proper training, infants are able to survive an accidental fall into the water by swimming, flipping themselves over to breathe, and calling for help. Classes start at 6 months, and it could save your child's life.
