Mother and Baby

Beautiful underwater babies!

Section: Baby

Last year, Water Babies launched a nationwide search to find a special underwater baby each month - and here are the winners! 

The photos show off the magic of babies swimming underwater, with fun poses telling just how much the little ones enjoy the pool. 

There are two babies for December - it proved too tricky to choose just one winner. 

Water Babies says the average age children start swimming is 4, with 40% of children not having a swimming lesson until the age of 12. But swimming lessons can begin from birth.
