Sunday Swim...

Having given up my beloved swimming lessons at Springfield school due to returning to work, I wanted to try and keep up swimming with Baby J, and so this sunday bright and early we went down to the local leisure centre for a splash. Changing rooms were clean and had specific cubicals for familes....shame the straps on the changers were broke. Pool was clean, water fairly warm and nice and quiet. Lots of nice bright images on the walls to stimulate baby. For the first 20 mins baby J just stared around taking in the new surroundings, once content the splashing began and baby had great fun! It was lovely seeing him so happy, & I'm determined to keep it up.... here comes the downside as there has to be with me.... the small pool is really shallow, which is what you'd expect for a learner pool, but for a body aware mummy I felt parnoid and kept on my knees throughout, if only it were a foot or more deeper!

Update - as its the Easter holiday I wanted to  take Baby J for a swim once more, and returned to Witney leisure centre. I was really disappointed to find that yet again most of the straps on the baby units were broken, and that the baby strap chairs were really wobbly. I made a complaint to the manager and have been reassured that this time new straps will be ordered and fitted ASAP! We will wait and see.....
