Michael Phelps is a healthy in a pool, and, it seems, during fatherhood.
“We’re during a theatre where we’re constantly looking out for him, since he’s grabbing everything,” Phelps, 31, tells PEOPLE with a laugh. “Boomer has a flattering brief courtesy camber though, so he’ll go from meddlesome to not in a second.”
Phelps says he also sings goodnight songs and reads books to Boomer before his 7:30 p.m. bed time.
“Depending on his mood, he gets a story, though if he’s critical he goes right down,” says Phelps of his son. “And if he wakes adult in a center of a night, we sing a integrate of songs and we’ll make adult difference to lullabies that we know.”
Boomer’s favorite tune?
“If we put B.B. King on for some bizarre reason, it calms him so much!” says Phelps. “If he’s grouchy, we put on something like that and he’s immediately soothed.”
Although Boomer isn’t brushing his teeth nonetheless (“He’s usually got 6 teeth,” says Phelps), he loves putting toothbrushes in his mouth.
“Anything he can get his hands on goes in his mouth,” says Phelps, who teamed adult with Colgate to lift recognition about H2O rubbish and remind everybody to #EveryDropCounts when brushing their teeth. “When he grows adult we’re going to learn him some-more about H2O conservation, since when we brush your teeth for dual mins and leave a H2O running, we rubbish 4 to 5 gallons of water. That series is astronomical.”
Phelps says he’s also been training his son to float in a family’s backyard pool.
“We fundamentally bound in dual or 3 times a week,” he says. “Boomer loves it, he floats around in a hands perplexing to float butterfly. He loves being in a H2O and he doesn’t mind going under.”
The Olympian adds that Boomer might spin out to be an even improved swimmer than his dad.
“He’s a approach conflicting of me as a kid, he doesn’t like being on his behind and that’s how we schooled to swim,” says Phelps. “He’s a step forward of me.”

So, will Boomer be removing a hermit or sister anytime soon?
Phelps says his family is perplexing to figure out “when a good time is.”
“Nicole and I, before anticipating out [about Boomer] suspicion we’d transport around a universe for a bit and have a honeymoon, though infrequently life isn’t exactly what we consider it will be,” he says. “We are so advantageous to have a healthy and happy baby and hopefully some-more entrance soon, though we don’t know when.
“We’re going by life bland happy and sanctified with what we have. But we wish to have some-more kids in a future.”
