The water was too wet for Lynn’s baby girl

Now that there’s water in the pool Lynn and her daughter have a possibility for daily swimming tours.

However, this day the baby girl hesitated and didn’t jump in.

Mama Lynn enjoyed the swimming and the diving – and even treated her daughter with a little shower. 🙂

Come with mama – don’t be afraid!

My daughter is still very small so she needs some time to get used to the wet element.

Although the cubbie has already had her first swimming lesson she doesn’t seem to be so fond of the water yet.

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    die Verlandungszone ins Wasser scheint mir für kleine Bären auch ziemlich
    ungeeignet zu sein, also kein Wunder, dass das Bärchen noch etwas skeptisch ist
    und Zeit braucht.

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe

  2. Lynns Kind scheint dem nassen Element
    noch nicht so ganz zu trauen. Aber das
    wird schon, denke ich. 🙂

  3. Dear Mervi!
    Lynn’s child is not sure about the water. Some kids need more time to learn swimming 🙂

  4. Es können ja nicht alle kleinen Bärchen solche Wasserratten wie Hertha sein, aber die Kleine Maus wird schon noch draufkommen, wieviel Spass das Schwimmen macht.
    Lynn wird es dem Töchterchen schon beibringen, sie ist ja eine tolle Mama.

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe, Erika

  5. Dear Mervi!
    It is obvious Lynn´s little girl needs some time to overcome the fear of water.

    Hopefully there are no serious reasons for it like a health problem. If I remember correctly there was a one year old male cub in Rhenen/ Netherlands that drowned in 2009 because of heart problems. He was the brother of Walker, who lives in Scotland now, and his name was – of all things – Swimmer…

    Lynn´s little daughter should have all the time in the world but I´m optimistic she will find out soon that water is her element.
    For sure Lynn as a good and caring mother will teach her how to swim and what fun it is.


  6. Dear Mervi and Inge
    I remember other Polar Bear cubs being reluctant swimmers. Lynn’s cub has only just been introduced to the big water outside (I am not sure whether she had access to water inside the den). Of course cubs are very fragile and we can only hope for the best.

  7. Liebe Mervi,
    ist schon alles so viel Neues für ein Eisbärchen, leider weiss sie nicht dass sie schon perfekt schwimmen kann.
    Das wird schon und dann wird auch dieses Kind zur Wasserratte.
    Danke fĂĽrs Zeigen und liebe GrĂĽĂźe
    Moni K
