Holy Cow! I was reading somewhere that infant swimming could lead to ear infections. I take it this is not a problem?

Kim-

Hasn't been a problem so far! She's been taking swimming lessons for a month, and before that we took her to the community pool, and before THAT she had her ears under water in the bath. And.. she was born in the bathtub. I guess her ears are just used to the water!

Bianka - bravo for getting her into the water at an early age!

Kim - stop worrying so much and don't believe everything you read! ;)

Both my two older girls got ear infections from swimming at this age. Regardless great job Maddie!

Great pictures!

WOW!!! Unbelievable! I thought I was on the ball for getting my 4 year old into swimming lessons.

I learned at age 2 in the 1970's--after almost riding my tricycle into an ungated swimming pool.

Clearly early lessons pay off!! Thanks for posting these beautiful photos, Bianka!

Yeah Maddie! You are going to be a great swimmer.

Kim~ I was under the water at 1 month and swimming across the pool alone at 1 1/2 yrs old. I had major ear infections from birth to 6 yrs old (when my adenoids and tonsils were removed). My nephew who is almost 3 (under water at 1 month also) has already had tubes and his adenoids removed at 2.. Hopefully being born in the water worked for Maddie! The doctors told me if I was born in the water things would have been better!

KT---I have no idea about the ear infections vs. swimming young. I say if its something you are interested in, then go for it. And if it becomes a problem, adjust accordingly.

Bianka--I wouldn't take my kid to swim lessons that young because I am a huge chicken!! Bravo to you!!
