Water wings are great. But if you really want to get your child in the right position for swimming try the children’s swim aid the Sevylor Puddle Jumper.
The belt immediately supports the child’s head out of the water and you can easily let go so your toddler can experiment in the pool free from you holding him/her. The belt supports the child in both forward and back positions. Our tester was 18 months old.
At £12.99 this really is an excellent product and gets a Major GadgetHelpline thumbs up!!
