Baby Spa :  Baby Ariz's 1st swim

We have been wanting to bring Ariz swim but due to his health, the weather and our schedule, we had postponed quite number of times. Suddenly, this opportunity came up and we decided to go that particular day itself. Before going there, I fed and make sure he had enough rest so, he could use all the energy while in the water. 

We had chosen to go to
F30, 1st Floor,
Centerpoint Bandar Utama,
3 Lebuh Bandar Utama,

Here we go Baby Ariz!

When we arrived at Hippopo Baby Spa, we were warmly greeted by the Hippopo Baby Spa staffs. Baby Ariz was greeted by his personal carer, Muna and she immediately got familiarize with him. She took Ariz from me so I could do the necessary things before the session starts. 

We came during weekdays and there were only us when we came in. However, if it is during weekend, it is usually packed and fully booked.

Getting ready for his session
Then, Ariz got ready - taking off his romper, exchange into swimming diaper provided by Hippopo. 

All set for the pool!
Once he was ready, Muna introduced Ariz slowly to the warm water of the pool. Muna did mention that the pool does not contain chlorine and the temperature was around 30 degrees Celsius. So, it was warm and suitable for babies.

Even Mama was excited for Baby Ariz! Muna was holding Ariz.
He already looked excited. After a few minutes, the neck float was being put around his neck. Then, off he went into the water. He was so active, kicking his feet in the water. 

Boy! He started to get tired after only 10 minutes which Muna said was normal for first timer. 
10 minutes break for Ariz.
We took 10 minutes break, snack time for Ariz and continued after that. This time, he used the waist float for another 10 minutes. 
Ariz was enjoying being in the water
We were so glad to have brought Ariz to try swimming. We could that he was happy to be in the water and by swimming, it stimulated his other muscles.
