Infant PFD

I now have a little girl that needs to get out on and near the water and was wondering what infant pfds people are using and like. Also looking to see if anyone may have one they want to get rid of.

I bought one for my son from Salus. It's a Canadian company, but they make an infant pfd that floats the child face up and isn't very bulky around their torso (relatively speaking). Mountain Equipment Coop makes a similar jacket. Unfortunately no U.S. company is making this kind of jacket. The price is a bit steep, but it's comfortable (which means they won't fight you about wearing it) and the head flap acts as a pillow for nap time. Here's a link: SALUS BIJOUX BABY LIFE JACKET VEST FOR INFANTS

And unfortunately mine is not for sale. Good luck.

My daughter wore a Stolquist Nemo for her first three years... it was the best of what I could find, in my personal opinion infant pfd's just all kinda suck though. I've been holding on to hers, just as a spare to put on friends little ones when out family floating, I might consider selling it, but you should just google it too, might find some good deals.
