After the birth of her daughter Molly in January 2016, Jenny took to sharing Molly’s experiences learning to swim in the bathtub with friends and followers on Facebook and Instagram (@jennyleakmiller.) The questions about bathing and swimming followed. Shortly thereafter, Jenny began the Pool Mom blog with the hopes of reaching others who want to learn about the ins and outs of introducing wee ones to the water.

Our Purpose

Pool Mom is a blog dedicated to the idea that teaching babies swimming and water safety helps children grow confidently into lifelong swimmers.

What We Do

Getting comfortable putting your baby in the water isn’t always easy, but with a few strategies and a growth mindset, it’s attainable for everyone. The Pool Mom blog strives to be a positive resource to help parents take their baby’s bathing routine a step further by providing tools for teaching water safety along with the skills necessary for learning to swim fearlessly.

Jenny is a former American Red Cross Lifeguard & Water Safety Instructor, who taught swimming lessons to children of all ages for nearly 15 years, and taught elementary school for 7 years. Now Jenny shares her teaching methods via the lens of motherhood, supporting parents and their babies with water safety through intentionality and kindness.
