Water safety is super important, especially when dealing with babies and young children. Adult supervision is a must at all times. While extra caution must be taken when you bring your little ones into the water, you can still have a ton of fun by taking the proper safety precautions. You can purchase a wide variety of inflatable products to help keep little ones afloat, such as vests, floaties, and baby rafts. Not all of these products are created equal, though, as I'm sure every parent has noticed.
One of my favorite swim accessories for my toddlers is the SWIMTRAINER "Classic" from FREDS SWIM ACADEMY. The three stage learning system gives your child a high level of security creating positive experiences in the water. The SWIMTRAINER "Classic" provides an ideal swimming position in the water and helps your baby learn how to move his legs and arms correctly.
The adjustable belt and 5 air chambers help prevent slip through. The SWIMTRAINER "Classic" is made of PVC and is phthalate free. It is not to be used for jumping into water or in shallow water. Constant supervision is required. Stay within arms reach when your baby is using the SWIMTRAINER "Classic."
The Swimtrainer comes in 3 different sizes to accommodate babies and children of different sizes and ages. Here is a breakdown of these products:
- Approximately 13-40 lbs
- Helps a little one get comfortable in the water
- Helps teach correct leg movements
- Approximately 33-65 lbs
- Helps teach correct arm and leg movements
- Approximately 45-80 lbs
- Helps transition a child to swimming without any floatation device
