Frequently Asked Questions
How do I put a Swimava Starter Ring on my infant?
One caregiver holds the infant, preferably in a sitting position with one hand supporting the back of the neck and the other hand supporting the chest/tummy. The second caregiver opens the Starter Ring and puts it around the infant’s neck.
Helpful hint! When placing the Starter Ring on your infant, try to get him to tilt his head up. This will make it easier to slide the ring under his chin and have his chin rest on top of the ring.
Parents should ensure that the infant’s chin is supported by the Starter Ring. If the infant’s chin easily slips under the chin rest, the ring may be too large. You can consider exchanging the Swimava Starter Ring for a Petite Swimava Starter Ring.
How does water activity benefit infant development?
Early water activity allows for full body development and can help encourage bowel movement, improve constitation, relieve colic, and regulate sleeping and eating patterns naturally.
Can the Starter Ring restrict my infant’s breathing?
Not at all. The Starter Ring supports the infant’s chin and head above water and does not constrict his or her breathing.
