Life jackets also known as PFDs — personal flotation devices, or life vests are one of the best ways to keep safe in the water.
Type II is what you should be focusing on. This makes them ideal! The US Coastguard says that life jackets for children under 18 pounds might not offer a proper fit:. The Coast Guard does not recommend taking infants onboard a recreational boat.
The PFDs currently available for newborns up to 18 pounds may not provide a proper fit to perform as expected. You must be sure you know the PFD you have works for your infant. Therefore, when you buy a life jacket, you should test it own to make sure it works properly and that the fit is right before you take it out in a boat. A wading pool would even work!
By law, in the United States, all children must wear a life jacket in a moving boat. The age cutoffs differ state-by-state, and you can look up the laws for your particular state on the BoatUS website. Even if they hate it. Any good life jacket will be approved by the US Coast Guard. The manufacturer should state that it is, and there will be a logo on it somewhere, too.
First of all, raise their arms above their head. If the life jacket touches their ears or chin, it might be too big. The best way to test out your new life jacket is to take them to the pool. If the jacket is working properly and fits properly, it should flip them onto their back instantly, keeping their face out of the water. Do life jackets expire? If a life jacket is left in the sun, it can become brittle and the inner foam can become waterlogged, making it less efficient, if it works at all.
Just get a new one! My favorite infant life jacket! A lot of parents talk about how well this fits their young babies, even as young as 8 weeks old! It gets the job done. And with no sleeves, they are quick projects for knitters!
