Exciting Konfidence Swimologist ambassador news & a competition..

swimology2

I am excited to tell you that Little Mr and I have been selected by Konfidence, Europes largest designer and manufacturer of baby swimming products, buoyancy aids and UVPF sun protection clothing and wetsuits for children, to become their official swimologists. It’s an exciting ambassador programme which I am thrilled to have been asked to be a part of.

Over the next 7 weeks, Little Mr and I will be taking to the water to enjoy a course of swimming lessons with our local baby swim school, Swimtime and we will be using and reviewing a range of Konfidence products in and out of the pool.

I’m really delighted to have been asked to be a Swimologist as being able to swim is so important to me. According to an old fable, “You may study all the ‘-ologies’ of the world, but if you do not learn swimology, all your studies are useless.” This resonates with the Konfidence ethos and the trust and confidence they have in their products helping little ones to feel comfortable and safe in the water as they learn to swim. I was taken swimming at a very early age and became quite the water baby. Apparently I was able to swim a width of the pool (with armbands) before I was even two years old! Of course, being able to swim has helped me gain confidence in and around the water and that is something that I would like Little Mr to have too.

We are so pleased to have been teamed up with Swimtime, as we had swimming lessons with them last year whilst I was on maternity leave. It was a fantastic experience and I’m keen to get Little Mr back in to the water again to build on the foundations we set and to let him enjoy being back in the water.

We’ve been sent a fabulous bundle of Konfidence products to put to the test including the Babywarma, an Aquanappy, the Neo Nappy and the Roll & Go Changing Mat. The products all look really good and we’re really looking forward to testing them out.

bundle

We’ve got our first swimming lesson on Sunday, having missed the first actual lesson last Sunday due to illness so we can’t wait to get our hair wet and have some fun in the pool.

To launch our exciting swimologist news, Konfidence are offering one of my lucky readers, a brilliant Konfidence swimming bundle worth £50. This includes the Babywarma rrp £18.99, the AquaNappy rrp £9.99, the Neo Nappy rrp £9.99 and the Roll & Go Changing Mat rrp £9.99.

All you need to do to enter is complete the rafflecopter below. Good luck!

We take her swimming at least twice a week and she is gaining in confidence more and more, this would also be perfect for an upcoming holiday this summer. Both my sisters are expecting babies too so I know this will be passed on when no longer needed too. My friends baby has Konfidence swimwear and it is such high quality, I would love to treat Aiya with a set.

    I wasn’t a very confident swimmer as a child as I was never really taught until I was quite a bit older. I would love to win so I could take my kids and teach them to swim so they are more confident than me.

  44. Mark Stevens
    17/05/2014 / 11:20 pm

    Our one year old is simply ready for swimming and after her bigger sister doing so well and ending up competitive swimming, that came about by an early dunking in the local pool
    And to quote my parents on the reasons why we started to learn to swim as little mites, ‘it may save your life one day’ well I have to agree but I am so glad they taught us as it brought many summer holidays of pool time through our school years.

    18/05/2014 / 7:54 pm

    Would love to be more confident with my little boy in the pool. He loves it but I am nervous of him drowning. This would give us both more confident and ensure that my insecurities are not passed on to him.

  57. 24/05/2014 / 9:09 am

    So happy that Little Mr is enjoying swimming lessons. All credit to mums and Dads who persevere. It’s not the easiest activity to take little ones too. Swimming is an essential life skill and if not taught early can certainly affect other types of learning and confidence building. It’s never too late to learn either. I’ve taught plenty of adults who say their lives have changed since learning to swim. So give your child the best chance of learning to swim by choosing a fun and safe swimming lesson provider.
