I can’t wait to take Kairo on her first visit to the beach …

She has become such a water baby and it warms my heart watching her lying flat on her back in the bath, with just her little face sticking out, kicking and splashing … such a happy sight (-:

It did not start out this way. When Kairo was born she did not enjoy bathing at all. It was the most stressful part of the day as she would cry from the moment we undressed her, right through her bath and until she was fully dressed again. It was no fun at all. She felt very insecure in the water and I had to do something to comfort her.

I tried taking her into my bath with me. I held her close and talked to her while we took a bath together. This made a huge difference. Later on, as she became more comfortable, we introduced a floating device, designed for babies, for her to float on in the bath. She still loves this.

At three months old, I now have a baby who loves water! I am so happy that I did not force her at any stage.

She now loves bath time, whether it is in her Stokke Flexi bath or the normal bath. Bath time is fun! She enjoyed her first “swim” in her Stokke Flexi bath in the garden recently and in January she is starting swimming classes!

Such memorable moments … Bring on summer!
