I really like this question from parent who want to teach her 6 moths old baby to swim. Is that All right for our first year baby in that age to swim?

You could find the detail of question and answer about parent who want to teach the baby to swim in 6 months old age below.

Parenting: Don't rush swimming lessons for kids under 4

question: I want my baby to always be safe and comfortable in water. She's 6 months old, and some people say now is the time to start swimming lessons for her so she won't be afraid. Is this a good idea?

answer: Being safe and comfortable in water is important for your daughter's entire life -- but we don't think swimming lessons are appropriate for her now.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says that kids aren't developmentally ready for swimming lessons until they're about 4 years old.

They may be able to perform "dog paddle" swimming motions at about 12 months, but they don't have the cognitive skills to deal with water-related risks, and what they learn in swimming lessons may not translate to other high-risk situations. Too-early lessons may make both parent and child overconfident about the child's ability to stay safe.
