If put underwater they'll open their eyes, hold their breath an in-built response known as the mammalian dive reflex, stops any water getting into their lungs. After only a year, this reflex is almost gone and any baby in water will cough and splutter, like the rest of us. Little Dippers is an inspirational training programme pioneered over the last ten years. Using the dive reflex, classes teach the youngest of children to not only enjoy and become confident in water but to equip them with skills that may one day save their lives. Introducing babies to swimming aids and improves babies and children's development- physical, intelligene, language, emotional and social.

Toys and books had a major link to children's development at the time, but the Institute of Education found no significant future associations. The most important factor, especially for mothers with little education, was playing with and talking to their children. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/6601343.stm Breastfeeding may protect "older" mothers from cancer Women who delay pregnancy past their mid-twenties may reduce their risk of breast cancer later in life by breastfeeding their children, a new study suggests. http://www.newscientist.com/ Wi-fi laptop fears for children Computers with wireless internet should not be placed on children's laps, says the head of the government's committee on mobile phone safety research.
