Eee! The weather is turning warm and my daughter is finally old enough to enjoy a summer of swimming! I’ve been excited about this for months. I ordered her swimsuit and Puddle Jumper early to make sure I was ready as soon as our community pool opened for the season. That also gives us time to start getting her used to her Puddle Jumpers, I want her to be 100% comfortable with it before we hit the water.
If you’re not familiar with Stearns Puddle Jumpers, they are adorable flotation devices for children. What makes them especially awesome is that, unlike regular life jackets, they are uniquely designed to enable increased mobility for children when swimming, as well ensuring full safety (and they are Coast Guard approved). Plus they are seriously cute — I’m in love with our purple sea shell!
I was glad I ordered it early because when my daughter tried on her Puddle Jumper for the first time, it took her a minute to warm up to it. I love that the design fits snug on her body with a dependable buckle closure that adjust on the back.
But now that we’ve warmed up to them, we’re huge fans! Cute, practical and safe! Less for mama to worry about is definitely a win! Now mama can relax and enjoy the day too!
Daddy had an early day off work so we headed to the swimming pool. We rubbed on the sunscreen, filled up some water bottles and packed a snack before heading out the door! Our apartment has a pool that’s literally 30 steps from our back door, so getting there was easy!
Girly Q loved the water, she splashed her feet while daddy held her! The Puddle Jumper was perfect, she grinned and had a great time. Since she’s still little we held her the whole time but the Puddle Jumper still gave me peace of mind — little ones are slippery in the water! When she was worn out from the water I laid out a towel next to the pool with a big umbrella over it for shade and let her play with a few toys next to the water.
Now get out your swim suits, grab your flotation devices for the little guys, and enjoy a pool day of your own. Then come back and tell me about it!
