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

This is the one we ordered. We don't know how she'll like it yet, but once she joins us and we try it out, we'll be sure to let you know.

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.

"Thank you Sam, I think your way is the best modification. Rising the deflection point of the halyard keeps it away from the Profurl swivel head. How did you fix the block to the mast : pop or screws ? Was the mast up ? What is the make or…"
