A Russian mother practices Igor Charkovsky's esoteric method of breastfeeding her baby underwater. By momentarily associating the pleasure of feeding with being underwater, Charkovsky believes this technique enhances the baby's comfort and enjoyment of water. Please note that a special technique is used to insure that the baby does not breathe water. Also, the baby is dunked underwater for only one second at a time. Do not experiment with this technique without proper instruction from a water-training expert.
