Water Safety Tips for Parents of Young Children

• Keep your baby in your arms at all times. • Dress her in a swim diaper that prevents fecal matter from leaking into the pool -- a major health risk for other swimmers. • An infant can drown in as little as an inch of water in less than 30 seconds, so beware of all water hazards, including inflatable baby pools, buckets, toilets, and tubs. • Your toddler may now feel so comfortable in the water that he thinks he can swim by himself. Don't leave him alone, even for a minute. He needs constant adult supervision around water.

• Stress basic pool safety, like not running near the pool and only going into the water with Mommy or Daddy. • Avoid water wings, air-filled swimsuits, and inflatable flotation toys. He will sink if they deflate, and they may give him -- and you -- a false sense of security. Use a flotation device that is a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket. • Don't leave toys in the pool after he gets out. He may be tempted to reach for them. These tips and additional safety recommendations can be found at www.parents.com Teach Your Child to Swim
