– Water wings or floats shouldn’t be used as a substitution for supervision. Always designate a water watcher.
– Swim lessons can save your child’s life. Begin formal swim lessons before age 1 to reduce drowning risks.
– Learning CPR can be life-saving. If a child is not breathing, start CPR immediately to reduce long-term risks, rather than waiting for an ambulance. Take advantage of free classes in your area.
