Background for the course
babyswim.online course contains over 30 video clips with many exciting exercises. The course is intended for instructors who teach teams of 10 – 15 babies and their mothers at once.
As an instructor, you need to be able to create a dynamic teaching that gives babies and their mothers a great experience every single time. You need to create confidence and teach the mothers and their babies how to perform dynamic baby swimming.
Dynamic Baby Swimming
Active baby swimming is based on several things, but the following items will be highlighted in particular to achieve the desired result:
– High pace
– High intensity
– Many dives
– Joy and joy
– Proximity, love and development
Compound with natural exercises and performed in the right way that is being trained again and again. In order to achieve the desired result, it is important that mother / dad gives the correct signals to his baby – shows his joy and enthusiasm and praises the baby for any progress he / she makes.
Many will find Aqua Feelings’s teaching very different from other places, and maybe also a little cross-border the first time. But when our students have gone to babyswimming 7 times where we have come through all the exercises, they will be quick so with that. They can quickly see the progress of their baby – and the excitement will not end. What’s happening is: Instead of training babyswimming, where “baby’s knowledge becomes a part,” we do the opposite: “We make it a natural part”
– and it’s something completely different and unique that will followt the child rest of life.
Learning is underway
Basic learning is already underway from birth and is formed over the first 2 years. The baby begins to perceive himself as a physical individual, and therefore affecting positive character is important.
When the mother then experiences the rapid progress of her baby, a special environment is created “a healing environment”. There is a very positive environment in the basin, which acts so relaxing on the babies that the water has a healing effect.
The free dive is an important element of baby swimming. The many dives composed at high tempo, result in it becoming a natural part for the baby to engage in water, rather than becoming a learned part later in life.
Sense of Touch
The sense of sense is (together with the vision) the baby’s most important tool when it comes to knowing the world.
For small children, touch is vital. It is also natural for most mothers to caress the pregnant stomach when you feel the movements of the fetus. After the birth, the mother goes on to caress her baby, which instinctively belongs to the identification phase where mother and baby learn to know each other. As the baby grows and herself grabs and holds things, the child takes everything to the mouth.
The reason is that around and in the mouth there are many feel receptors that are stimulated. In this way, the baby learns to distinguish not only taste but consistency, texture and temperature. Mouth and fingers explore everything – including the parents. The baby wants to whip in hair or put her finger into the parents’ nose, mouth or eyes. In the water you will experience the same behavior pattern. The baby will taste and feel the things in the pool, and of course also on the water.
It’s an adventure every time your baby is in the pool, and it’s important to let the child run out for his curiosity. Water is a fantastic element, also in relation to the sensation: When we lower the body into water, we become affected throughout the body at the same time. It may be experienced by some babies very intensely and strongly stimulating
Use music in the teaching of baby swimming
A hot water pool is the right place for the baby to be. They love to move in the soft component, where from the outset can feel the weightlessness and the freedom of movement, the water gives them.
Water has some unique properties, which in one way or another affects our minds in a positive direction. This also applies to adults.
No other activity can in half an hour giving babies as many senses as baby swimming can. To enhance the experience in the pool and to create security, we use music for teaching.
When using music in your teaching, so it does not take very long before you have created a great atmosphere in the pool. The music also affects the rhythm-related senses, which stimulates both babies and mothers to make it all a breeze.
The music helps to create the pace that you want. By using through-the same music every time, so you get to create a sense of security among the babies and mothers. You know what will happen.
The music helps to create a more effective and targeted education.
Babies are very emotive.
All their actions are informed by emotional center in the brain. The baby has an innate intuition of what:
• is well
• and not good.
Just as we found out that the signals mother gives to her baby, is crucial for baby’s behavior and state of mind right here and now.
The baby’s state of mind may also be influenced by experiences at home. There may be a great many things that can affect the baby’s state of mind in a negative direction. Therefore, it may in any case be difficult for the mother to interpret why the baby is unhappy.
While we find that surprisingly many parents find it very difficult to praise their babies or children. It drops them more naturally to correct their children when they do something wrong. If such a big baby. throw food onto the floor, so Mum says: No! You must not, so take food from you mom.
Whereas if a big baby eats well, it’s far from natural for the mother praising the baby with: Where are you clever.
Therefore we decided to build baby swimming up on the basis that: Change the negative state of mind for a very positive state of mind of both mother and baby.
We know that 90% of our actions is based on the subconscious. This means that the acts we daily do not conscious. They are based on huge storage of experiences and impressions from the previous days, weeks, etc.
Is there a mother of a baby who is not just right at the top, and may be controlled somewhat by negative mind, she can easily get to give wrong signals to her baby. Or even worse, the baby can sense that mother is not really attentive and fully present.
