Rumble / Babies & KidsBabies amaze us every day with their talents. Whether they can sing before they even speak, or hold the balance on their daddy’s hand, it doesn’t matter. Babies are awesome! We just wish we knew what was going on in their heads. It is widely accepted that they are born without any previous knowledge, but this kid makes us rethink our stance on this because he just can’t be this good at swimming this early on.

Here we can see a classic case of infant swimming, which is the phenomenon of human babies and toddlers reflexively moving themselves through water and changing their rate of respiration and heart rate in response to being submerged. The slowing of heart rate and breathing is called the bradycardic response.

It is not true that babies are born with the ability to swim, though they have reflexes that make it look like they are. Babies aren't old enough to hold their breath intentionally or strong enough to keep their head above water.

This adorable baby, named Aiden, jumps right into the backyard pool and manages to swim across it with ease! He can be seen wearing a huge smile on his face even while being underwater. He is adorable! Have you ever seen a baby swim like that before? He may be a future Olympian! Best of luck little guy! We hope to see you soon on the tiny screens.

Babies are not born with the ability to swim, though they have reflexes that make it look like they are just like this baby looks like a professional. However, after six months old you can consider enrolling them into some swimming lessons.

Even though a lot of babies can't swim, a lot of babies love splashing around in the water, just like this fantastic infant! So feel free to make playing in the pool a family affair – stay hands-on whenever you take your baby into the water.

An infant set stomach-side down in water will move his arms and legs in a redundant swimming movement. This reflex is known as the "swimming reflex." The swimming reflex starts to blur at about the half-year point.

However, you should always keep an eye on your baby in the water! No matter how professional they look in the water, or they are just beginners you should never let your kid unattended in the water! Remember that it is imperative that you teach your kids how to survive in the water, as well as yourself properly.
