|Wouldn't you have loved to say, "Well nutritionally speaking, you're probably right."|
|Just the other day I went to Wal-Mart and put my baby in his infant car seat over the seat part of the cart since he was sleeping too soundly for me to want to put him in his sling. I was shopping and minding my own business when some woman stopped me and asked if the seat was secure up there. I really wanted to say, "Nope, sometimes he just bounces right off," but I was polite and showed her that there's a safety catch to prevent it from ever falling.|
|a friend of our told us a couple of weeks ago that if I threw my 5 month old baby into the pool that he would be able to hold his breath and swim because he had been holding his breath while he was inside of me????|

|-- As an avid garage saler, I've been asked repeatedly this summer if my newborn is for sale. "How much for the baby?" I know they're joking, but it kind of creeps me out to have strangers offer money for my baby.|

my ds3 used to push away from me when I started taking him into the pool at 4mo. He LOVED going under water and swimming around. It was actually really difficult to keep him in my arms, and after a few confrontations with the lifeguards at the Y they finally stopped bugging me about it and realized he was doing it on his own, I wasn't forcing the issue!
Swimming lessons are SO SO important for kids. I start mine in the water by age 6mo at the latest and the two oldest (9yo and 5yo) can swim without floaties and my 3yo is almost ready to go without now. Of course, this doesn't mean I would just let them loose without my supervision, but it does make my life a whole lot easier knowing they have those skills. we never have to turn down pool parties and swimming has become their favorite past time. I really feel sorry for kids who are 6 or 7 and can't swim
BUT you should NEVER just throw a kid/baby in the pool. That's just asinine :
|One time she was trying to illustrate this and said in a mocking voice "Americans are always like 'oh, I love you' to their children".|
