Houston Swim Club's Tracy Laman offered expert advice to parents on ABC13, in response to local incident at a public pool.

"Sometimes parents don't know what they don't know, until they get into a situation," said Tracy Laman, Aquatics Director for Houston Swim Club. "Like this mom, it's too late before she realizes, 'Huh, I don't think I know what I'm doing.'"

Laman said with lessons, a baby can hold his breath from six to eight seconds. However, kids who have had no training should not be repeatedly submerged.

"Limit submersion to three or four times in a 30-minute time span, you don't want to do them over and over and over again, so spread them out," said Laman, adding that if the child shows any signs of distress, you must stop immediately.

"If your child is not having fun and showing extreme signs of anxiety, stop, do something else."
