Celebrate National Learn to Swim Day with SwimWays! #NationalLearntoSwimDay

Splish, splash! The temps are heating up, and we've been enjoying some quality family time together in the pool! I consider myself lucky because both of my kids are water babies. They love to splash, play, and swim for hours on end. I try my hardest not to be a Helicopter Mom, but my husband and I are on the same page when it comes to our kids and water safety.


Making a Safe Splash with SwimWays


Baby S enjoys her first experience in the SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy.

We are blessed to have access to a beautiful pool which overlooks lovely Lake Norman, NC. This is a place that our family loves to visit when the weather is warm, and we're hoping to spend lots of time there this summer. Our seven-year-old son is an amazing swimmer. He learned to swim at a young age, with help from SwimWays products. SwimWays is just one of those brands that's practically a household name for us, given how often we go swimming. We trust and rely on their floats and pool safety products to help keep our kids safe when they're in the pool.

Easy in and out for babies & toddlers!

The SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy has been our float of choice for Baby S, who is 24 months. She's at the top end of the age range for this float but is perfectly comfortable in it. It is appropriate for babies ages 9 - 24 months. The float features a mesh 'seat,' which baby's legs go through. The oval-shaped float is inflated before use in the pool and comes with a detachable spring canopy to keep baby protected from the sun. It only took about five seconds to get Baby S seated in the float, and then we were off- swimming the afternoon away!

Why Choose SwimWays?

Safe & happy kids equal a very happy mom!

Why do we continue to choose SwimWays products for our kids? It's simple- they're an industry leader when it comes to water safety, and teaching kids to swim. In 2012, SwimWays founded National Learn to Swim Day and has been dedicated to educating parents and children about water safety and the importance of learning to swim, ever since.

Did you know that the #1 selling baby float in the US is the SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy? It has consistently received four and five-star ratings by consumers over a number of years.

We stayed within arms reach of Baby S as she used the SwimWays Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy. We loved watching her swim and play. She was able to move by kicking her feet, and loved being able to play silly games with her brother, as they 'caught' some of our SwimWays Squidivers! I felt more at ease with a toddler in the pool than I ever have before, thanks to this wonderful float. It's now going to be at the top of my gift list for friends with babies who frequent the pool.

Just keep swimming!
