However, as a former lifeguard, I have mixed feelings about this. I do think that floaties give both parents and children a false sense of security in the water, so if you're going to use them, do not take your eyes off your child for a second. Not one. And make sure your child doesn't have access to a pool because they may not realize that they can't float and kick around like that without their floaties and just jump in thinking they can play without them. I'm sure everyone knows this, but I don't think it caution can be expressed enough when it comes to toddlers and pools.
My son has been in the water at a very early age and wants freedom so that is why I purchased this even though it's technically a little big on him. There is nothing on thier back so if they flop back and cannot hold thier head out of the water it could be an issue for you. It is important with relying on any floatation device to know what your child is capable of AND you never leave them unattended by water.
Also, reviews of "my child didn't like it" I find laughable. 2 two old not liking something at first? Welcome to parenthood. My son did not like it at first but we made him feel comfortable and honestly at his age and with his determination it's the only way he can be in our pool at the moment.
Comfort? It's bulky but my kid rocks it and spend hours in the pool climbing in and out.
As far as quality - I expected this to last maybe 1 season which is about how long our bathing suits last with the amount we swim. I purchased this 3 months ago and with regular use and exposed to hot sun drying it has begun fading and the design is coming off. The foam is not as stiff. So I'd say my guess is that it will not last to next year.
I bought this on a 'lightening sale' and am very happy with my purchase.
