Finding a pool to use in Jacksonville can be tricky, but once you jump over that hurdle the next is finding the right pool equipment for your children. Of course, safety is key in finding the best for your child, but comfort is just as important because if my children do not like something it becomes a battle. I want a product that will be a great floating device that will encourage developmental growth and promote safety. Finding a good fit is trick for my daughter that has her baby tummy. Passing equipment from one child to the next doesn’t always work because my children are built so differently.
Quality is also important. We have found SAMs and Costco to be a great source of our families seasonal needs. When it comes to safety, saving a couple dollars is not worth losing a life.
I remember as a kid where the arm floats that we straight plastic and I think I lost a layer of skin after every use. I was so happy to find cloth flotation for my children’s arms that also goes around their torso. I was so happy to borrow a great ring that my little one could sit in. She loved the colors. Finding something fun and safe and portable is key.
If all those chooses seem hard let me remind you that now you have to face the mirror and put on a bathing suit.
What is your favorite floatation device for your child?
