    PLS beware of bringing your babies to Hwa Xia as there are NO safety precaution, check and procedure.

    My 9mth old son was swimming happily in the big pool today and his right foot suddenly got sucked into the SUCTION hole.
    He screamed in pain and i discovered the problem. quickly i pulled his feet out and close the jacuzzi thingy.
    Mind u, their staff just stand there n look and den walk off!!!!!!!!

    i had to save my child out and luckily my hubby ard to quickly remove the neck float!!
    i quickly cuddled my darling who had never cried so piteously in his life.

    Many parents were alarmed and asked them got do safety check.

    NOT ONCE did the staff come to check how is the baby
    NO ONE apologise
    The staff began to push responsibility at each other and say its like that.
    On further check i discovered the safety cover for the suction had fallen out.
    SO HOW SAFE is it????

    We called their company but they say will check and yes, no apology.

    We brought baby to KK and his foot is LUCKILY not fractured but bruised.
    He winced and whimpered when i massaged it for him [​IMG]

    Now we are demanding for the package to be cancel
    NOT gg to let my precious be swimming in a place with no safety check

    Mind u, we read their card they say they are not responsible for any accident and injury in their outlets. If such a place do not bother abt safety at all, especially for helpless young fragile babies, i think we shd think twice before sending our babies there!


    i will now rather let my ds swim in the safety at home buying those portable tub

    Hi mummies

    I bought the inflated pool at hwa xia recently. it is the most expensive series, costs S$168. the opaque, blue in color and with fishes design (this material is more lasting than the transparent series)

    I do not have the picture of the inflated version but i have attached the color of the material. It comes with a L size neck float. Do email or PM me if you want the pix (sorry, i dont know how to upload the pix)

    Willing to let go at $120.I have only used it once as my DS does not like being in the water.

    Self collection at Tampines MRT.

    hi mummies, sorry but Hwa Xia is not a swimming school. a tiny tub with a young infant hanging by the neck with a float does not count as swimming.

    Suggest to buy a neck float instead of the tub. Your bb might not like to be in the water...

    Oh it's good but don't you think one month is too early . You must do what you are thinking but after two to three months . It will be best . So just try for it .

    If you are referring to real baby swimming lessons where baby learn to swim a distance without floats, you can consider Happy Fish Swim School which is located at 8 Duke's Road. Indoor heated mineral pool somemore...

    1 month is too young. I had started sending my son to Pengu Swim School when he was 4 months old. Pengu swim school baby swimming classes have so many facilities.
