we had a baby last april and was wondering if they make a floatation vest for a 1 year old? Anybody take their young children if so at what age do you start?
There are pfd’s specifically for kids up to 30 pounds (the Stearns model is the most common). They have full collars, crotch straps, and grab loops on the collar, so if the tot ever goes in, they’ll float like a cork until you can reach down and grab them.
both my sons
have been in canoes by age 5 (weeks, that is…).
If you can’t find a fitting PFD, goto
