I've ran into a problem with my chubby DD and swimming
I have a chubby little girly who is almost 14 months. She loves to play in the water and kick and splash. Last summer, she was teeny tiny and we had a lady bug floaty that she sat in. But shes over the weight limit. The weight limit on everything i find is 20/25 pounds and shes at 28.9 pounds...Not too much over the 25 pound limit but with it being in the water it scares me :\ My friend had one and the patch torn off after being used too much so if she weighs to much and is in it alot...whats going to stop it from breaking? So i started looking into those arm floaties and shes too far under the weight limit on those to use them...And life jackets...i can find that start at 30 pounds...but they are HUGE on her and what if she flips over? She doesn't have the stregnth (or know how to) flip back over. (No, i don't plan on letting her get far from me at all...But it just takes a second!)
YES, i know theres a whole bunch of what ifs, but this is my lil baby and even a little water could make her drowned so i want to be super safe...
I REALLY want one that she can sit in...The age limit on them is like 2 and 3 but shes just too big as far as weight goes...
Anybody have any ideas on what to do?
This is the life jacket i was looking at...but i still feel like if she flipped it could drowned her or scare the hell out of her so she never wants to swim again
