Babies can learn to float before learning to walk

I met a mother one month after her baby son drowned in his great-grandparents’ pond. His mother and her mother-in-law had been talking when he crawled through a hole in the screen and followed the short path down to the water. When I met her, she was saying things like, “I have to figure out a way to kill myself without my daughter thinking I’ve left her. My son needs me. He’s still breast-feeding.”

So glad to see this group teaching babies to save themselves when they fall in the water. Beautiful video — and quite worth the minute it will take you to watch it.

Infant Aquatics is doing some good work in the world.
