Ds can only swim with armbands (he's just 4)
Dd can swim with armbands or one of those woggle floats (the long bendy sausage like ones - she'll be 2 in August and I'm inordinately proud of her swimming!).

I boast of DSs swimming whenever I get the chance If someone starts a baby swimming thread, you can be sure I'l express an opinion there

Nope. dd (5) can swinm with armbands. ds (3) can't. dts too young. Trouble is once you have a coupel of toddlers, swimmign becomes a big no no.

I'm 38, DS1 is 3 and can swim, DS2 is 22 months and loves swimming as long as he's holding on to someone!

Conversely, Soup, I have great guilt because mine aren't swimming yet. So hard to get them all down the swimming pool. Can't book lessons either due to changable nature of husband's job.

no, he's 6 weeks
BTW, I can't swim and think I'm too scared to learn now, although I love being in water.

7 year old can, just. 5 year old nowhere near, and not interested - but I feel very guilty about it though...

How many children have you?

Can they all swim?
Oldest 6 can

zebraZ Fri 01-Jul-05 21:28:32

37, 3, nope, but oldest is only 5! Oldest can almost swim safely alone, middle child as no interest, the baby is desperate keen, is practically doing the breaststroke now, and seems like he will learn very quickly when older.

41,3,yes.
