Try to avoid feeding your child dairy and apple products for at least 2 hours before swim lessons. These foods are hard for your little swimmer to digest before the swim lesson and may result in them throwing up when they are burped or just leave them feeling very uncomfortable throughout the lesson. These foods tend to make their tummies full of air and make it difficult for them to swim.
If you notice that any other foods make your child gassy, try to avoid those as well. I’ve noticed that fruit in general is very hard on their tummies and may need to be avoided like apples and dairy but each child is different.
The first day of lessons will be about building a rapport and teaching your swimmer to close their mouth underwater and grab the wall. The first week of lessons is all about having your child learn how to propel their body through the water and find the wall. Towards the end of the week we will start to introduce the back float.
