As soon as we got there, I dressed Riley in her swimsuit and put on her Stearn's Puddle Jumper's life jacket. I had purchased her life jacket last month when I noticed that her arm floaties were not really any help to her. The arm floaties were hard to get on and did not help keep her head and chest afloat. The Puddle Jumpers has a flotation piece that supports her chest. It also has arm floaties that are attached. She does not find it uncomfortable at all.
Let me tell you that the Puddle Jumpers life jacket is amazing. Riley swims everywhere with no help from me. She actually will not let me touch her when she is swimming around with it on. Before the life jacket, she would cling to me and not let go. I think this is a wonderful start and I am so glad she is no longer afraid of the water. I just wish I would have purchased one last year.
I was so proud watching how far she she has came in such a little time. She is more confident and can actually enjoy pool time!!
