When can I enrol my child for the "water babies"?


Even before baby was born, your dreamt of enrolling with the water babies. But now that baby is here, you are having second thoughts. Is it dangerous? Is there a danger of infections? Can baby breathe underwater?


We have already thought about all these questions and have the answers that will help you to take the plunge.



First of all, don't forget that your baby has excellent motor skills in water, that it learned in your womb, and will quickly remember what it takes to swim. Playing in water is an excellent way to improve baby's motor functions, confidence and self-reliance. And it is a special moment that you can share with baby, far from all your other preoccupations.


Water helps to reveal your baby's awakening, progress, relations with the environment and loved ones, fears and the capacity to transcend himself. And in water, baby will also develop his sensory capacities: gravity, temperature, noise, the feel of water on the skin, tickles, etc.


You can also use the Nabaiji BB Seat to comfortably carry baby and play in the water without any risk of baby's head going under. And once you have finished in the water, you can wrap up baby in the BB Towel to keep him warm and gently dry him. You can enrol baby at the age of between 3 and 6 months, as soon as his course of vaccinations has been completed.


Advice: Remember to wash and feed baby at least 1 hour before the session in order to avoid hypoglycaemia or regurgitation during the activities.

How are the sessions organised?


The water in the pool is heated especially for the water babies to stop them, and you, from catching cold. A special thought for anyone who is worried about feeling cold! The Nabaiji Aquatop will keep you nice and warm. Closed around the shoulders, it prevents the unpleasant feeling of cold when you get out of the pool. Your child can discover the joys and fun of playing in water with the boards, mats and slides that we provide. Baby will be initiated gradually with an instructor. The sessions are adapted to baby's psychomotor development, age and experience. In the first sessions, baby will learn to come into contact with water. Once baby feels more confident, he can gradually lie down in the water and then go underwater, while remaining in the hands of the instructor. This is a stress-free step. Once underwater, your baby will automatically hold his breath.

Some very useful tips: always try to conceal your own fears, because your baby will feel them too. And it doesn't matter if baby doesn't want to go underwater. You can always try again next time!



At the end of the session, remember to carefully dry every part of baby's body. Keep some physiological saline, cotton wool, a thermometer, an anti-irritation cream and his usual gentle soap in a waterproof bag. And once you arrive home, baby, and you, will almost certainly fall fast asleep!
