We're Konfidence Swimologists 2017

Tuesday, 10 January 2017


“You may study all the '-ologies' of the world, but if you do not learn swimology, all your studies are useless.” – Author Unknown


There are a number of key skills I want my two to master as they grow. One of the main ones has to be learning to swim, and being confident in the water. I've always loved swimming but have never had the confidence in the water that I wanted. We're therefore thrilled that this year we'll be working with the top swimwear brand Konfidence, as one of their official baby swimologists!

Over the year we'll be documenting Parker's swimming journey as he enjoys lessons with Puddle Ducks, West Kent. He's in their Kickers class where they start to encourage independent swimming and more. The most exciting part of all is that it's Jack that's going to be in the pool with P - a perfect bonding experience for daddy and baby!

I'll be sharing how Parker is getting on, putting the Konfidence swimwear and products to the test and there may even be ways to get involved yourself too. I know Parker is really going to love being involved as he's a little water baby - and I can't wait to show off his skills on our summer holiday this year.


I filmed a little vlog sharing more about the Swimologist programme and the goodies we recieved, which you can watch below. And make sure to follow on social media to watch Parker's progress, as I'm sure I'll be updating weekly.



Disclosure - We are working with Konfidence this year as one of their Swimologoists. Therefore we received the swimming lessons and products free of charge.

  1. We've found local swimming lessons to us, which are an absolute bargain (less that £40 for 6 sessions!) I think learning to swim is one of the most important things a person can learn

  5. I've been meaning to take Bear swimming since he was born, 10 months on and I still haven't haha! I can't swim so it's really important to me that Bear learns young, I think it's such a valuable skill! Xx

  6. I love the Konfidence shorties wetsuits with velcro shoulders. They are so good for my daughter (she is autistic) but she is getting older now though and will be gutted to discover they don't have the same design in a larger size... argh! Lol! They are fab though, totally recommend them!

  10. Getting Isla into swimming lessons was the best thing we done! Now she is in pre-school I have the time to take Archie too as I'm keen for him to learn too. Looking forward to hearing how P gets on at his lessons! xx

  11. Leanora started swimming from 14 weeks, I think you are right it is so important, to teach them the safety's of water as well as having fun and the younger they start the easier it becomes.
