These Underwater Babies Are the Cutest Photos You'll See TodayThese breathtaking (some funny!) photos are for a good cause, too!by Rachel Perez .
Do you remember when the elders used to joke that they taught our parents how to swim by "throwing" them in the pool and letting their natural survival instincts take over? It's not far from the truth. Babies are no stranger to water; after all, they lived in their mother's womb--filled with amniotic fluid--for nine months. That's why, with safe and proper training, babies can be taught how to swim, and it can even protect them from drowning.
That's what photographer Seth Casteel had in mind when he was taking picture of babies underwater. Armed with his waterproof camera, plus the babies' parents and swimming instructors, he visited more than 18 swimming school for babies, shot more than 750 toddlers and published the photosgraphs in his book Underwater Babies. And he's doing it to spread awareness on water safety for babies.

"After watching a few infant swimming classes and learning associated benefits, I realized I could possibly help bring awareness to this cause through a series of joyful images. Infant swimming lessons can help to reduce the risk of drowning by up to 88 percent. I hope these photos inspire a conversation among parents, which may present an opportunity to educate them about lessons and the associated benefits," he said according to his website.
