We got this for our 5 month old after having tried 2 other neoprene, zipper style infant life vests. She hated the others and was very uncomfortable in them. It seemed like when you zipped them up, they were too tight even though she only weighs 16 lbs. This one is very easy to put on and take off and she doesn't mind it at all. The fact that the back portion does not have any of the foam flotation material in it makes it much less bulky and less restrictive for her.

The infant life vest was bought for an 18 month old, 33" tall, and 23 pounds. I wasn't sure how it would fit, but putting it on our child it seemed ok. It was a little confining with the collar around the head and the thick front, but biggest complaint is when in the water the main front part moves up under the chin and looks very uncomfortable and confining. I think the problem is that the strap around the waist is not wide enough and does not hold it in place snuggly. Also, if the child does not have a shirt on or a one pc. bathing suit, the small strap around the waist isn't comfortable on their skin, whereas a wider piece might do better. As our child gets taller, maybe the straddle will keep the vest in place and with more use it may get better. Only used two times so far.

    I have bought this life jacket for 2 baby gifts. I was always frustrated that life jackets for infants are so hot and uncomfortable. This one is much cooler and comfortable for infants.

              We have tried several different vests/floats and the kid loves this one the best. He doesn't seem to be uncomfortable in it. That was one of the important things for us. If he was uncomfortable, he didn't want to wear it. And it works very well.

              • Q:

                I read that this product is good for children up to 30lbs. At what weight would be okay to start using the product? How little of a baby would be safe, and fit well, in this vest?

                  A:

                  Our less than 30 lb. infant vests are designed to fit all infants. However, because there is such a wide range of shapes and sizes of infants, it is always best to try the vest on the child, confirm that it is comfortable and adjusts correctly. As far as when it is alright to start using the vest, that would be at the parents discretion and if on watercraft, state law would require the use of one at all times.

              • Q:

                Will this product turn the baby onto his back and keep him from rolling over onto his side or front?

                  A:

                  The baby safe product is rated as a Type II PFD, which is our near-shore buoyant vest. It is intended for children up to 30 lbs. and designed to turn most unconscious wearers face-up in the water. It features foam panels in the front of the vest and none in the back to accomplish this.
