Any suggestions on a good new born life vest. All vests i've seen are way to large 0-30lbs. My baby would fall right out of it.

I have 3 of them I'll send to you. One is an Oneill. Email me your address.

Unfortunately none of them are comfortable. They are bulky and awkward and press up into the kids face. But, they're designed with a purpose I guess.

Heres one...the puppy is pretty small to give you an idea. i have no idea if this is or an infant but its a pretty small coasty.

Thanks for the Responses, and offer Jarrod.

I'm leaning towards this jacket, looks to be a good jacket for a newborn, she's only about 8lbs right now.

Yea i'm trying to find one for my 1 year old right now. didn't take him out on the boat last year, (wife wouldn't let him come out until he was 1 for some reason). but he's a year 4 months. suggestions on that age would be great! sorry to hijack steven.

my oldest son, 5 now, wore a vest kind of like the one in your link but it had a smaller "collar" and didn't go under the crotch like that, it just had a strap. so that one actually looks really good, i'd go with that one honestly!

Not to snake in here, but I would be interested in those jackets J-Rod (if Steven isn't taking them). how much are you asking for them? Do you have any pics?

LR3 that's a toddler jacket not infant. Infant jackets have the neck and head support with the strap on top.( unless it's not evident in the pic).

I'm evaluating different jackets for my daughter (8 mos next week) and purchased a Stearns from Walmart that did not fit. Stearns actual website has options, overtons also has a good selection. I was in a BJ's wholesale last night and they had a nice neoprene infant jacket made by kidder, might try that.

I picked up this one and it seems very well made. Haven't tried it out yet but it's got the big head float/handle so it should be good. Not like she'll be more than a foot away from anybody anyways.

evo always had promo codes also so it ended up being like $25

I bought this one for my daughter last year. We had her out on the boat at four weeks. She was no more than 10lbs and it fit great. It goes up to 30lbs which seems like a big range, but we were able to make it snug and it's neoprene so it didn't seem to bother her at all.

Just ordered the CWB one for my 10 day old daughter! I know it's early but hopefully we will be able to use it this summer.
