One of the most common questions I get asked is, “Won’t baby swallow water or drown?”
Consider this… Baby has been swallowing water for nine months. Even if baby attempts to breathe, nothing has changed since being in utero. Until the baby takes its first breath of air, its lungs are not inflated.The baby is not left to swim, but immediately brought up onto mom’s chest. You would never put the baby back in the water once out of water.
