    What happens if the baby starts crying?

    Normally, babies respond positively to water, but the reasons for crying can be multiple (he is tired, hungry, noise bothered him has abdominal cramps, has swollen gums, etc.). Therefore the discomfort must be identified and reduced, because, if associated with water, it can cause a negative when getting in contact with water the next time.

    • This can occur in the case of an infection of the external ear, only if the water that remains in the ear canal has not been removed, which allows bacteria to cause an infection.

    To promote continuity of activities at the pool and strengthening the immune system:

    • We recommend arriving at the pool 10-15 minutes before the lesson, giving up the warm clothes at the club entrance, for better acclimatization to the ambient inside.
    • At the beginning, as well as at the end of the session, showers should not be done with hot water, the temperature being at a comfort value for the baby’s skin (32-34 ° C).
    • * The child will be transported from the locker room to the pool in a towel or robe.
    • * The shower at the beginning of the session plays the role of acclimatization, for which we recommend to be done just before entering the water, without the child’s skin being dry (do not towel dry the child after showering).
    • * After the lesson ends another shower with water at a temperature of comfort for the baby’s skin will be taken; also make sure there is no fluid in the ear canal and dry your child’s hair.
    • * Getting the child dressed will be done gradually, warm clothes will be put on when leaving the club, after the acclimatization break so that pores close, at least 15 minutes between the shower and leaving time.
