SWIMMING facilitates Bonding and the Sense of TOUCH for Your Little One!
Parents are often unaware that, of the five senses, touch is the most sensitive and well-developed at birth. Numerous studies have proven – and what parents in other cultures seem to know instinctively – is that touch isn’t just something “nice” for baby; it’s absolutely essential – to bonding, to growth and development, and to present and future emotional well-being.
Parents may believe that by allowing their babies “alone time,” they’re helping them grow up to be independent individuals. The irony is that babies who are touched, played with, and carried near the body tend to have stronger bonds with their mothers – and the resulting secure attachment means a less dependent, more self-reliant child in the long run. Studies have also shown that most-touched babies are less prone to later physical violence and more prone to be trusting, confident, and resilient.
Babies, for the sake of their motor and cognitive development, also need to move! When they spend too much time immobilized, they never strengthen their muscles – to lift and turn their heads, to push up on their arms, to develop optimal balance, stability, and motor skills. Early movement experiences are also considered essential to the neural stimulation (the “use-it-or-lose-it” principle involved in the keeping or pruning of brain cells) needed for healthy brain development.
