Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall....turn around and hang on! My kids have been doing ‘Humpty Dumptys’ since they were 6 months old. Water safety is the first line of defense in keeping kids safe. They sit on the side of the pool and you recite the familiar nursery rhyme and help them ‘fall’ into the water, head above water first and then as they get comfortable they lean forward and fall under the water, then you help them ‘turn around and hold on’. Say the words over and over again, do the routine over and over again, and you may have just bought yourself 2 precious minutes if your infant or toddler falls into the water because you taught them to turn around and hold on. And if they can’t do that, maybe, just maybe, you kept them from panicking right away and that gave you the 2 minutes you needed that they were missing. Turn around and hang on. Turn around and hang on. Turn around and hang on.
