The American Academy of Pediatrics is relaxing its stance against swimming lessons for children younger than 4.

A few small studies now suggest toddlers may be less likely to drown if they've had swim lessons.

The group says it's fine to enroll children as young as 1 in classes, but doctors aren't recommending lessons for every child.
