Lenny Krayzelburg Weighs In
Lenny Krayzelburg a four-time Olympic gold medalist in swimming, contributed his thoughts to today’s vlog. Lenny – we are thrilled to have your expertise up on CloudMom! Lenny discusses the benefits of swimming for babies and why pool safety for kids is so important.
Speaking from personal experience, I have to say that the more I introduced my babies to the water and the earlier I did this, the more comfortable they were swimming. One of my oldest children started quite late and he now loves swimming but at around 4-6 years of age he wouldn’t go in the water as eagerly as his siblings. Meanwhile, my girls who have been in the water since they were a few months old don’t want to get OUT of the water.
Watch my vlog for more on why you should consider starting swimming lessons early for your little ones.
