  • I noticed that too... I take my dd swimming and she's now 2, but at the time was 18 mos. She WILL NOT wear the vest and prefers to go out on her own which she ends up swallowing the water and laughing. So my friend and I just got our dd's the arm floaties even though it says 2+ years. Have a great trip!

  • You can get infant life vests that have a strap that goes under their crotch. You can also get the floatie rings that have a seat in them - they take up little space because you pack them not blown up. I personally would go with the floatie with the built in seat, gets the child in the water enough but not too much.

  • No arm floaties!! A vest is best.
