Type III infant pfd

I am looking for a US Coast Guard Approved Type III PFD intended use paddling, whitewater, kayaking for an infant less than 30 pounds. Does anyone have a brand or store to recommend? I'm having a hard time locating anything type III.

Why do you need a whitewater suitable PFD for an infant under 30 lbs? If I knew of one, I’d tell you. I’m a firm believer in natural selection.

I looked for a long time and decided they don't make type 3 for under 30 lbs. 30 lbs and up there are plenty. I knew our type 2 would pass the ranger inspections even though they don't recommend them, is this why you are looking for a type 3?

In doing swift water training I've come across this question from parents often. Thinking of putting a class together for boating parents in the area. Lots of folks in past classes have asked this question due to Utah regulations. Some have told stories of being turned away by rangers.

I have a mti infant pfd I'd give you cause we are done with babies (I hope). If your in the northern front range come by anytime before friday. We didn't use it, too much can go wrong with an infant on the river. Besides kids get cold fast.

It might say where you live but I'm on the mobile viewer right now so no one bust me for it pls.
