Swimming Babies and Safety Workshop at the Parenthood, Sunway Pyramid by Cheekaaboo

Swimming is lots of fun for people of all ages and children especially love getting in the water and enjoying themselves. Swimmings keeps our child's heart and lungs healthy, improves strength and flexibility, increases stamina and even improves balance and posture but swimming can take our child life too if parents do not know how to take safety measures to save our child's life. As a mother to my 5 Little Angels, Mommy Jane had took the initiative to attend Cheekaaboo Swimming Babies and Safety Workshop which held at the Parenthood, Sunway Pyramid last weekend.

Bryan Yap with 23 years experienced as a swimming instructor taught us on how to save our child's life by sharing the skills that will give our child a fighting chance in the event of an accident. Timing is critical when it comes to save our child from a near-drowning experience. If enough oxygen is not being delivered to their brain, severe damage can occur within a few minutes. If the child's heart has stopped beating for more than eight to 10 minutes, their chance of surviving are greatly reduced.
Since drowning can happen in as little as 20 seconds, even in the water that is only inches deep, most infanthood drowning cases happen in backyard pools, bath tubs, inflatable pool, toilets and drainage sites. Bryan also showed us on CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation), an emergency procedure that involves a combination of chest compressions and recue breaths (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation) to save our child life. If there is no respond from our child, then we need to call 999 right away.
Bryan taught us to test the water temperature first and the correct method to hold our baby during their bath time. He also invite 2 audiences i.e. Mom Blogger, Ayu and a Daddy for a demonstration.   
This workshop was sponsored by Cheekaaboo and the venue was sponsored by the Parenthood Playland. While all the parents attended the workshop, children enjoying themselves for a unlimited play at the playland for the day at the Malaysia's 1st London Street Family Park.
Cheekaaboo offers a range of cheerful and bubbly protective swimwear and floaties designed for the comfort of our precious little ones. They are not just your old ordinary swim stuff, but specially designed for baby and children's needs and parents' too. The Cheekaaboo WarmmieBabes Swimsuit is made from 2mm soft, double lined neoprene with insulating and sun protection properties. It keeps baby warm in and out of water by creating a layer of insulation from arms and thighs to ensures a more comfortable arm and leg movements. It is also designed with adjustable Velcro fastening at the back to accommodate size differences and growth. Cheekaaboo Swimwear is available for sale at The Parenthood, Sunway Pyramid and Sunway Putra Mall.
Thanks to the Parenthood and Cheekaaboo for the invitation to Mommy Jane to the workshop conducted by Bryan.
