It is a bit big on her, but it worked...the Baby pfd by Kent

Anyone find a semi-comfortable pfd for an infant under 30 lbs ? Ousr son is 9months old and starts screaming as soon as the life vest goes on. The problem seems to be the excessive thickness of the chest area (which, I'm sure, is to keep him floating face up)

my baby was a week old... and loved sleeping in the vegtable hammock.... and then we got bigger hammocks.. hung below out of the sun.... just cover them all up with light clothing... wonder if they make baby clothes with the UV protection now... or buy the fabric.
