We all know that drowning is a very real danger to children, but we also want our kids to enjoy all the fun water activities, and the best way to make sure they're safe is to have them wear a life jacket. But, the choice can be a tricky one.
1. Ensure that the life jacket is suitable for the size and weight of the child
The volume should not be too large. Children in the water wearing life jackets can play a protective role and will hinder the normal activities of children in the water. Grab the top of the arm opening and gently pull upward. Have the child stretch his or her arms overhead. See if the life jacket goes through the child's chin or face and if there is extra space on the sleeve holes. If so, the life jacket is too big for the child.
2. Operation is simple and easy to learn
Operation should be simple, switch the airbag to be placed in a convenient place, pull open and close the airbag must be quickly inflated. Children are not familiar with life-saving equipment, so the operation of the life jacket must be simple.
3. More safety buckles
In order to ensure the safety of children, the safety buckle of the life jacket should not be less than two. And can be adjusted according to the size of the baby. The safety belt can not be tied in a way that is easy to loosen in the water. Safety belt buckle should be firm, do not easily touch open.
4. The color should be bright
For example, orange, red and other bright colors, you can let the lifeguard at a glance, some are also equipped with reflective panels.
How to choose the right children's life jacket
First of all a child's undershirt should fit. To test the fit, tighten all straps and zipper up, then lift the child by grabbing the shoulders of the child's life jacket, the child's ears and neck should not slip through the head opening.
Children's life jackets should always be shallow water tested after purchase to ensure the correct size and floating ability required. The advantage of testing children's life jackets is not only to ensure proper fit and floatability, but also an opportunity for your child to feel comfortable with the undershirt while in the water. Help your child feel comfortable in the water and explain why they needa life vestfor their child. This will help your child stay calm if an emergency arises.
