Does anybody have any good recommendations for a life jacket brand or model for a 2 year old kiddo?
Thanks in advance!

After being US Coast Guard approved, I would go with comfort since they virtually have to wear them all the time.

Mustang makes some great kids vests, available at most marine supply stores......This one is a favorite

I can't find a link to the one we have for my son. I'll try to find it and post it. It has a harness built in and has been great for us for the past 2 years.

We had a similar one and as Matteo’s mentioned, a harness and grab loops are a must, not only for safety but it made keeping a hand on the kiddo while swimming and off loading.

Make sure to buy a very bright color. Blue life jackets should be illegal.

This is what we have (might not be the same year so might be ever so slightly different, but its the same brand). Just hard to find a place to buy - I found one site with EU prices.

And here's a couple pictures of him wearing it.
