Benefits when babies learn to swim
All the physical activity in the water, the energy that the child’s body needs to keep warm burns a lot of calories.
Therefore, the child will have more appetite after regular swimming time.
Parents never leave young children and infants alone around the water, such as bathtubs or swimming pools. For children under 4 years of age, adults must be close enough to be able to touch them at all times.
Your baby’s body creates billions of new neurons when playing with water, which improves cognitive function and increases appetite.
Improved cognitive function
The movements are crossed on both sides, using the opposite arm and legs simultaneously to perform an action, helping the baby’s brain develop, optimizing the brain’s ability to learn and communicate.
Movements according to this pattern build neurons throughout the brain, especially corpus callosum (a wide strip of nerve fibers connecting the two hemispheres of the brain).
This facilitates the function of communication, feedback, voice control; at the same time improve reading comprehension skills, language development, learning, spatial awareness of children in the future.
When swimming, your baby moves his hands and kicks his feet. They perform these actions in water, which means that the brain is recording the sensation, the resistance of water.
Swimming is also a social experience that enhances brain power.
A four-year study of 7,000 children from Griffith University in Australia found that children who knew how to swim made progress in physical and mental development compared to the control group.
