    The baby floating thing is sketchy... I would probably be right under the baby if I was 'floating' it for any reason, and I would be freaking out the entire time. I don't think I could do that.
    But that 'baby yoga' is insane. I couldnt believe that when I saw it, what the heck is she thinking, geez, soem people astonish me.

Even the best, most attentive parents in the entire world cannot guarantee their child's safety. To say that a child should never be in a situation where they can get hurt is, to me, very naive.
    Brilliant post (like usual).

    I don't think they would consciously remember it, but if it was done often enough, it would become muscle memory more than an actual thought for a long time. Then when they're old enough to understand, if someone told them to do when they are made uncomfortable in the water, it would be both conscious and muscle memory.

    Also, that baby yoga.. I don't even have words for that.. I love yoga, but even a full sized person tossed around like that would be dangerous, but for a BABY?!

    That baby yoga thing freaks me out. I can understand at least PARTIALLY the idea behind teaching a baby to float, with the statistics on young children drowning, I mean if you provide your child with even 0.01% increase of a chance of survival, then why wouldn't some parents do it?

    I fail to understand entirely what any purpose of "baby yoga" could be aside from "baby coma" when she slips her grip and the baby goes flying into the ROCKS directly behind her. Like, good grief, at least do it in a GYM with a MAT!

    Going to get controversial here, but I honestly believe the floating baby is a cultural thing as it is common in Europe.

    For the parents that think that none parenting is happening for a drowned baby, I think that is arrogance. I am a better parent so it would never happen. I think that is an insult to all the parents that have lost a child.

    Of course there are terrible parents out there, but many are not. I believe it to be supremely arrogant to think that there are some parents who love their kids more or parent better (disregarding the crack heads).
    There is no decent parent in the world who would risk their child, so how do these drownings happen?

    I certainly get the principal behind this. We had a local kid drown last summer though....not while in the pool, but much later that night while he was in his bed sleeping. It happened because he had inhaled water while at the pool. I'd be worried about the baby inhaling water.

    I don't mean to sound rude or anything, but how else would you teach a baby to float in the water? You can't sit it on the side of the pool and explain and demonstrate a stroke. You also can't sit them down and say "Head back, feet together, arms out, belly button up" and expect them to float.

    Small babies know how to float like that on instinct. I doubt that lady was actually "teaching" her baby. More just letting it go in the water and that's its natural reaction.

    The baby yoga thing is just sick. And that the father just stood by (not to mention videoed(sp?) it.)
