"Honestly, I am of the school of thought that it is best to either teach a child independent self-rescue skills, or to keep them out of swimming lessons... I find that lessons that introduce the water as a fun place, but do not teach children the…"

"Good information, thank you!  So, what would you recommend for an almost two year old?  Would you do the ISR, or go to somewhere that has the 'guppy' lessons?  Should I start with ISR? Thanks! Carrie"

"I teach ISR lessons, and was an ISR student as a child too :0) so I'm a little bias, BUT I always encourage parents to ask the following question when deciding which program to pursue for their little ones: Call or email and specifically ask:…"

crafts- party and nursery decor

Hi moms!! I am hoping I am posting this in the correct place. I am going to stop working soon and will be home with my little one. I am however, looking to do somethings from home. I have taken up lots of different craft projects in recent months and would love to make nursery decorations or party decorations for anyone who may be in need and without the time to do it themselves. I know from experience that buying these items on etsy is rediculously expensive and doing it yourself takes a ton…See More

"Both my kids and ALL my friends kids did ISR and I am VERY happy with the results. My youngest started when he was 14 months old. The first few days can be rough as kids learn how it works, but after that, it's GREAT. My kids are 8 and 10 now…"

"Were they really hard for your lo in the beginning? I've heard some scary stuff about kids swallowing tons of water and throwing up or being bloated. Sounded traumatic and am wondering if this everyone's experience or just some."

Swim Squad Infant classes

Have any of you had any experience with the swim squad infant classes or any ISR classes in general. My lo is 13 months and I am wanting to set her up with classes through swim squad and just want some general feed back on the classes or swim squad if anyone has experience with them.

Baby Proofing

My lo is almost 7 months and starting to try pulling up and getting into everything. I am looking for suggestions on the best baby proofing products and somewhere I can find the most reasonably priced products as well. Thanks in advance!

struggling with work and being a new mom

I'm not sure if anyone else is going through the same emotions as me. My little girls 5 months old and I am terribly disappointed that I get such little time with her. I work for my in laws who feel that my work should come first. My husband doesn't want me to quite my job because my salary alone is 1/3 of our income and a significant amount of money. I want to find a way to be home with her without hurting us terribly financially. :(
