Welcome to week 2 of my free printables! THIS IS SO FUN! If you missed the announcement last week, I kicked off Jasmine's Free Printables, which is me designing a bunch of free prints for you guys...
My Favorite Baby Swim Gear
Before I became a mom, I never imagined myself being obsessed with baby swim gear and accessories. But now baby swim classes are routine with Hazel! I’m not sure if loving the water is something you’re born with, but Hazel has loved the water since day 1, so it sure does feel that way!
She loved her first bath and every single bath she’s had since. Since she loved her bath so much, we were excited to see if she would like the pool. We waited until she was 4 months old and our pediatrician said it was okay for us to take her in the pool.
Just to be clear, we live in Southern California and we swim year-round. Here’s the gear we got to make sure she loved her first pool experience…

I even bought her a cute little bathing suit before she was born! Here are some others I’m loving:

After taking her in our pool at home a few times (the water was about 86 degrees Fahrenheit), we realized that she wanted more. I’m not sure how to explain it, but she definitely wanted to put her face under the water. My first job in high school and my early college years was a pool lifeguard and swim instructor, but I was still nervous to put her underwater.
So we signed up for “mommy n’ me” swim classes at our local pool. For us, it was AQUATOTS, but just do a Google search for infant swim classes in your area. We started going twice a week, rotating between Brett, my mom, and me. She loved it, and they showed us how to safely teach her how to go underwater.
