Here is Matilda who is the oldest:
She is 21 months old. She had no problem wearing this life jacket. It fit her well.
He is 8 months old. Although the life jacket fits, it tends to ride up around his sweet cheeks.
Granted Lincoln is only 6 weeks old, but he just about gets lost in it.
Why is it that they do not make a Coast Guard approved life jacket that is smaller? Life jackets for children are divided into just three categories according to weight:
Infant: 30 pounds or less
Child: 30-50 pounds
Youth: 50-90 pounds
After that it goes to adult S, M, L sizes.
I like the safety features of the infant one. It has a pillow to keep the head afloat, more flotation in front to be self righting, a strap to go between the legs to keep them from floating out of it and a hand strap so they could be easily pulled from the water.
I think we need one more smaller size. Why not break infant into two categories, infant and toddler? This would protect our most precious cargo more comfortably.
