ARE BABIES BORN WITH THE NATURAL ABILITY TO SWIM?

Babies have reflexes that make them appear to be good swimmers. One of them is called the dive reflex, this causes babies to hold their breathe and open their eyes when submerged. 

Swedish researchers studying the dive reflex in 21 infants between 4 to 12 months old found that none of them inhaled water or choked when under water. They also noted that the babies didn’t seem apprehensive about the next dive. In fact, some seemed eager to dive again!

Until about 6 months, babies also have a swimming reflex which will cause them to move their arms up and down in a swimming motion. However, this doesn’t mean that babies can swim, and they don’t protect a baby from drowning. It’s dangerous for a baby to swallow large amounts of pool water also.

Be careful any parents of tumblr with your children!
