CHICAGO (AP) - The nation's largest pediatricians group is relaxing its stanceagainst swimming lessons for children younger than 4.
A few small studies now suggest toddlers may be less likely todrown if they've had swim lessons.
That's why the American Academy of Pediatrics says it's fineto enroll children as young as 1 in classes.
The doctors aren't recommending lessons for every young child.Some parents may feel their little ones aren't ready for the waterand that's OK.
In the past, the group said swim classes might give toddlers andparents a false sense of security.
The updated policy was announced Monday.
