If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to get a swimming lesson, you might be better off sticking to buying cheap swimwear, a new study finds.
A review of more than 10,000 swimming lessons shows that, for many families, the cheapest way to go is to buy cheap swimsuits.
“If you’re spending $200, you’re going to get something you can wear all day, and it will be nice and tight,” said Dr. Scott Hines, a pediatrician and chief medical officer for the American Academy of Pediatrics.
“But for those who can afford it, you can go for more.
It depends on your budget and what you’re willing to spend on it.”
The review looked at the cost of a single-shower swimsuit, the price of three swimsuits, and a three-day swimwear package, which includes a swimsuit and a pair of socks.
The study also looked at whether or not the swimsuits were good value for money.
The authors of the review, from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Johns Hopkins University, say that they found “no convincing evidence” that the cheaper swimsuits would provide adequate protection against the virus.
The average cost of the five-day package was $129, while the two-showers cost $94.
The researchers found that parents in households earning less than the federal poverty level would need to spend $1,500 on a single swimsuit for their child.
The report said that if they wanted to get an average cost per swimsuit of $1.25, they could buy them for about $160.
The parents of children under age 5 who spent the least money on the packages also had higher risks of being infected with H1N1, which can cause pneumonia and other serious health problems.
The analysis comes as the CDC has issued an advisory urging parents to buy cheaper swimwear.
“The CDC’s advice is to purchase swimsuits at cost.
But if you’re concerned about the health risks associated with the virus, you should not purchase them at cost,” said Mark Rosenberg, the CDC’s deputy associate administrator for public health information.
The American Academy is urging parents and health care professionals to buy as many swimsuits as they can afford and to make sure they are wearing them when they get home.
“There are some things you can do to help keep your child safe, such as taking them to the beach when they are younger,” said Jennifer Bussard, the organization’s executive director.
“In this case, the parents should be advised that the cost to wear swimsuits when they return home is $1 per swimshirt.”
