Is anybody looking for a flotation device for their kid? B/c I have a recommendation. My nephew had one called a Puddle Jumper that my brother was raving about, so I decided to try it for the Bean. By her second time in the pool, she was "swimming" to the side by herself and jumping in the pool too. The Puddle Jumper isn't inflatable, so you don't have to blow it up, and it goes around the chest and arms so it keeps them up out of the water, and it buckles in the back so they can't unbuckle it. And they are only about $15 at Wal-mart. $15 well-spent, if you ask me!
