Why You Should Get Your Little One a Puddle Jumper Life Jacket

March 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 198

It goes without saying that every child should wear a personal floatation device when near water. Nobody plans an accident, so when one happens be prepared and avoid unnecessary tragedy. Sometimes, you just have to say the obvious. All children need to wear a life jacket when in or near the water. Sometimes children don't like them, but if you can find one they like it is much easier to ensure they keep one on.

I tried many different brands of life vests with my two kids, until I stumbled across one that they both really liked. Some kids really love the water, while others are frightened. If your child is intimidated by the water, the Puddle Jumper life jacket will ease their fears and make life easier for both of you. If your child loves the water, you can ensure your little dare devil is safe in the Puddle Jumper.

The things that the children like about these PFD's (personal floatation device) is the bright colors and fun designs. They are designed for children between 30 and 50 pounds, and these are the kids that love them. The basic Puddle Jumpers come in orange, pink or lime green. The deluxe come in more choices including purple with a giraffe, blue with a lion, and pink with an elephant. These PFD's are also available in a swimsuit! Pink with flowers or green with dinosaurs.

The Puddle Jumper life jacket fits across the chest with a sleeve for each arm, and a buckle in the back. They should fit snug, so that they don't slip off. Children honestly don't mind wearing them because the offer freedom of movement and make them feel secure. While in the water they keep your child afloat without allowing the face to bob in the water.

If your child is fearful of the water, this is a great way to ease that fear. Once they see how comfortable and safe they feel, their confidence will grow. The Puddle Jumper life jacket is type III, type V U.S. Coast Guard approved, so you can feel secure and confident in your childs safety. Of course, a child should never be left unattended while in or near the water. Watching your child play confidently is a much more enjoyable outing than struggling with life vests or having to hold them the entire time.

These life jackets can be found at most major retailers or online. Whether you choose the Puddle Jumper or another brand, please always keep the little ones in your site, for a safe and enjoyable family outing!

Holly Christoper has two children and a swimming pool, so water safety is a topic she enjoys. She also has a website with information about the PuddleJumperLifeJacket. You can also find more information on how to choose a life preserver there.
