Know The Truth About Toddler Life Jackets
Toddler Life Jacket - Know The Truth Why You Must Purchase One
Why do you need a toddler life jacket? Answer this first, then you can weigh your options and purchase the one that is best for your needs. Whether it is for boating or just swimming and recreation, Safety is a must. It's not east to get a little one to wear a life jacket.... they can be uncomfortable and bulky. It's a good thing that you do have options about which jacket you purchase.
What to consider BEFORE You Purchase A Life Jacket:
After you answer some of these questions then you can choose from the types of life jackets on the market that will best suit your needs.
Types of Jackets:
Children must weigh 11 pounds
These toddler life jackets are good for boating in calm waters and to use for SUPERVISED swimming only. These jackets are the most comfortable and provide more movement to your toddler. These are the best for all around family recreational use.
Best in Supervised areas but ARE NOT to be used for a life saving device! A person who is conscious can turn themselves over in a Type 3.
Additional Information you should know:
A safety grab strap on the back is an excellent feature for a toddler life jacket. Look for a vest with the crotch strap as well. This helps keep the vest from riding up while they are playing. Be careful and do not purchase floaters, arm band, swim rings, or special swimwear to use as safety devices. These items may help your toddler stay afloat, BUT they are not equipped to be a life saving device, nor are they approved.
NEVER rely on the fact that you as the parent are a strong swimmer and your child does not need to wear a vest. Toddler safety is first and foremost! Even the strongest of swimmers should wear a life jacket while boating near rough waters. Children should always have them on in certain areas. Toddler learning begins with us parents, so let's teach them safety. Make sure the jacket fits properly as well.
According to the United States Coast Guard, it must "fit snugly and not allow the child's chin or ears to slip through." Not testing your PFDs yearly is another common mistake. Any jacket that is waterlogged, faded or leaky should be thrown away and a replacement purchased.
This is the most valuable piece of information. I made the mistake and thought that I could purchase a life jacket at a garage sale. WRONG, because I had no prior knowledge of the jacket. Unless you get it from a friend or family member I suggest you Be safe and buy NEW!
Where To Purchase:
A Toddler life jacket can be purchased at most stores that sell sporting goods. You can even check out department stores. Be sure to check that they are rated...read the tags. I found a great site that has good deals. Amazon has top of the line vests at a decent price.
It is important for our children to be safe. Especially around the water. You can have all the FUN you want knowing they're wearing their toddler life jacket. So take tons of toddler pictures this Summer and Stay Safe! Have fun with your family...:0)
