Re: Camping with a 2yr old and 3 month old
Life jackets... Just make sure they have a crotch strap... My 3yr old just flipped out of our boat a few weeks ago (throwing food at ducks) and we were stopped on shore, which is a good thing, but he went head first over a pretty high side, neither dh or I had any idea that it was possible, Ive been boating my whole life and have NEVER seen anything like it, granted we were laughing very hard a while later about it. Some children will wear the life jacket with the "pillow" as we call it, and others will not, make sure that you try it on first, they will tell you if it is not comfortable, and you pick one that is. our kiddos stay in life jackets if they even decide only their feet are going in. I was a life guard/ swim instructor for too long and I have seen too many bad things happen, so this is one of our BIG rules.
