I am trying to figure out the difference between swim vests, personal floatation devices and life jackets--- I am wanting to get a better swimvest for my just turned 3 yr old than the one we have. I had gotten the konfidence jacket- but it doesn't seem to keep his head and mouth above water and I later realized it is more for belly swimming than upright floating.
I saw a kid today with a speedo swim vest and he was upright as I was looking for. I looked up speedo swim vests and saw mixed reviews- some said they kept the kids head out of water and some said they didn't-
I am just trying to figure out the right type of swim vest for my learning to swim 3 yr old so that he could float on his own in it if I let go of his hands without his mouth going under water at all- need recommendations please.
