Some kids are just born little swimmers, while others are petrified of the water from day one. But no matter how your child feels, knowing how to swim is an essential life skill. Read on for expert advice to help kids learn to love swimming and be comfortable in the water -- whether they're wading into the baby pool or diving into the deep end.

Do your Sunshine Sweeties like to play in the water?  Has he/she learned any swim skills yet?

My Sweetie is a total fish!  It takes her a while to warm up to the idea of getting into the pool, but once she's in you cannot get her out - even when she is shivering and turning blue cause the water is cold.

She hasn't learned any real swim skills yet, since we only have a small inflatable kiddie pool, but she doesn't mind getting her face wet and loves to kick and splash.
