    Question Infant Life Jacket?

    Advertisements
    I want to take my 7 month old baby girl to the Housing Pool. So far, I got the 2 piece swim rashguard set, baby swim sun-hat and baby sunblock covered but I am missing a safe swim vest/life jacket.
    I found some on Amazon and read the reviews but I am still insecure of which one is the safest. I trust you ladies more over online reviews!

    Where did you buy your baby's life jacket/safety swim vest and how long did it last? Also, did it keep your baby safe while in the pool with you or your SO?

    Please, feel free to share links and pictures. I will buy my baby's based on y'all's reviews!

    I got my daughters from Target. Let me see if I can find the link.

    Something similar to this : Stearns® Infant Hydroprene Antimicrobial Vest : Target

    We also have the infant float with the cover on top.

    We use puddle jumpers, but I think they are meant for bigger kids. At 7 months we just held the girls while in the pool.

    Maddie is 11 months old and when we are in the pool, she is in this:

    One of us always has a hand on her though, I'm paranoid.

    I don't use a swimvest for Caden. We just have a baby carrier with a cover and hold him/it while we are in there. I, too, am paranoid about him drowning.

    I bookmarked pages with your suggestions both original link and Amazon finds. I intend to have her in my arms while watching her like a hawk but babies at her age are more aware of their surroundings and can get restless in a matter of seconds. I just want to take all the necessary precautions to keep her extra safe (paranoid new mommy ).

    Thank you kindly for your time and all the suggestions/recommendations.
