Babies are no strangers to water and most are delighted to have the freedom to move on their own. Until now, there has been no program that allows for this much independence, this early. It is safe to schedule your first visit after the remaining umbilical cord is gone. Swim diapers and warm towels are provided.
Our program is developed for babies who are 2 weeks – 6 months of age (in general). If your baby was born PRE-TERM, please call us to discuss appointments beyond the age of 6 months. Many of our clients have circumstances that allow for Float Baby sessions beyond 6 months and we want to hear yours. Although most of our Float Babies love floating the first time, it may take a time or two for some friends to become adjusted. Just like swim lessons, it’s not all acquired in one session. Keep coming! We encourage weekly visits to maintain routine for your baby and allow for them to gain the full long-term benefits this program has to offer.
During your session, you can expect to observe your baby enjoying the sensation and freedom of movement in the near weightless environment of purified water (20 – 25 minutes).
Afterward, you will be provided with a warm towel to dry your baby and begin to prepare for the infant massage instruction. Our certified infant massage instructor will lead you through some basic strokes, teaching you techniques to help relax and soothe your little one (20 – 25 minutes). A custom blend of organic, cold pressed oils with Vitamin E will be provided for your in store use and are available for sale.
