Baby Float (Baby Swim)
Baby Floating is a liberating exercise for your newborn before they start to crawl. No other program could effectively offer your newborn child early brain & physical development through water floatation. Babies are generally ecstatic to have the freedom to move on their own, and are definitely no stranger to water.
Give your child the gift of freedom in a safe and supervised environment with our professional service. Your young ones will greatly benefit from our program because:
- It Develops Their Learning Skills
Responding to repetitive voice commands can sharpen your baby’s mental skills and increase their levels of understanding. A German study found that swimming babies had advanced motor development, social skills and intelligence2 than non-swimmers.
- It’s Great for Their Physical and Mental Health
Our program provides an opportunity for babies to perform a complete physical workout, stimulating all of the 5 senses (taste, touch, smell, sound, sight), strengthening your baby’s heart and lungs which in turn, assists in the development of their brain.
- It Builds Their Strength
Buoyancy and water-resistance means that babies exercise more muscles effectively than on land. Finnish research showed that swimming babies crawled later but walked earlier, all thanks to their excellent muscle control.
- It Develops Their Coordination
Learning to swim with toys and the buoyancy in water helps improve your child’s motor coordination and balance. A 2009 study by the Norwegian University of Science & Technology found that babies who swim have better balance and can grasp objects more easily1 than non-swimmers.
- It Boosts confidence
Introducing your child to water at a young age helps prevent aquaphobia from developing later. Exercises which involves moving independently in water, or holding on to the sides are perfect to instill confidence2 in your child.
- It Teaches Water Safety
Drowning is one of the top 5 causes of death for people aged 1-14 years for 48 of 85 countries according to WHO. Every year more than 500 children drown in Malaysia. Learning to get to the side, hold on, get out, or swim could potentially save your child’s life one day.
- It Promotes Bonding
Skin-to-skin contact strengthens the bond between you and your little one. This is one fantastic way for parents to spend memorable 1 to 1 time with their child, and as a new family unit.
- It Enhances Their Wellbeing
Warm water relaxes your baby, and swimming improves their appetite. This means your baby will experience improved sleeping and eating patterns. Good news parents!

Touch is the first sense a baby knows, and it is a very powerful element in human bonding. Massage may be helpful in encouraging the connection between parent and child as children grow as well as easing the symptoms of colds, colic and teething.
Baby Massage benefits includes:
- It Enhances Infant-Parent Bonding
Bonding has been defined as a unique relationship between two people that is specific and endures through time. Massage may facilitate deeper understanding, integration and the connection with parents.
- It Promotes Relaxation
Stimulation of the first sense a baby learns is a great and pleasurable way to relax your child. It enables the release of pent up tensions and raises the levels of oxytocin (“feel good hormone”) in both parent and baby.
- It Promotes Better Sleep
With high levels of oxytocin released, relaxed muscles, and deeper breathing, your baby will feel calmer and relaxed. Optimal sleep is paramount for the development of babies in their early age.
- It Boosts Immune System
According to researchers, people who received a 45-minute massage had an increased number of lymphocytes, which are white blood cells that play a large role in defending the body from disease.
- It Helps You Learn About Your Baby
Since babies can’t speak, they respond to touch and sound. Babies would be able to express themselves by giggling or interacting to what you do. Parents will be able to pick up on these cues and signs to further understand their child.
