A little PSA for our mamas with older kiddos and FTMs as well.
I follow a woman named Nicole Hughes on social media (@nicolehughes8
on Instagram) who's 3 year old son died in June 2018. She has since become an outspoken advocate of Drowning Prevention and she is a FORCE. She is an excellent writer and SO relatable. My eyes have been opened to the reality of drowning (the number one killer of children ages 1-4) which can happen in 30 seconds for a toddler.
She published her most recent article on Today's Parenting series about survival swim lessons, but she's also a strong voice AGAINST using the popular Puddle Jumpers.
Please take a minute to read some of her stuff...it's heartbreaking and raw, but such an important message. https://community.today.com/parentingteam/post/how-do-we-save-our-toddlers-from-the-number-1-threat-to-their-lives
