    Hey ladies, can you please advise me on what safety float to put lo in when taking him swimming, he is nearly 10months, the jackets say from 2 onwards yet I think he is too big for a seat float, any advice? Xx

    I don't use a swimming float, because he never leaves my arms, unless he's doing a brief solo swim. Am I missing something?

    My other half said the same but I suppose I am being extra cautious especially for when we go on holiday x

    B would not wear anything and hates floats so I just hold him and support his tummy so he can thrash his arms and legs about lol! In the sea abroad I didn't let him go other than in really shallow water I let him walk about a bit x

    Thanks for the advice ladies, I suppose I was just worried he might try and escape from my arms in the water as he does on dry land ;-)

    B does escape sometimes so I make sure I'm near an edge so he can get on dry land safely. I then look like a beached whale trying to get out the pool quick enough to chase him lol!

    We use a baby float I got from eBay and Enid loves it because she can sit and kick her legs while we push her around and generally try to amuse her!

    The float we got was suitable from 6 months and has tons of room for growth :)

    Ours is like this, it's brilliant. Also means you get a bit if relax time whilst pushing them about in it.

    This is ours, it was only £6! :)



    I agree with FBE, the best thing is that you can still take them out and hold them whenever you want, but it's nice to have to give your arms a rest and let them enjoy a float about.
