Once babies can sit up and have good head and neck control, they can start learning survival swim basics, says Christi Brown, executive director of The Judah Brown Project, a water safety advocacy organization she started after the death of her son, Judah. “Babies around 6 or 7 months old can learn to float on their backs if they were ever to fall into the water alone. We believe they should get these skills before they learn to crawl. If they can crawl, they can drown.”

One of the best things you can do to prevent drownings is to designate a water watcher. Brown says a water watcher is someone who will not be distracted by a phone or anything else. Their job is to watch the water at all times. She recommends rotating the job to other adults every 15 minutes.
