We were able to use this float for the first time this weekend. Our son is almost 4 months old and appx 18 lbs so I wasn't sure if he was still going to be too small to use it. Once we put him in the right way (front and back sides are not marked), he had an absolute blast. He was able to lean forward (he can't hold himself up yet) over the inflatable cushion and put his arms around both sides. His toys were within his reach in the convenient mesh ring and the canopy kept ALL sun off him (he has red hair and is extremely fair). He was able to kick his legs and got lots of exercise. I would highly recommend this product to everyone- just be sure to keep a close eye on them if they can't hold themself up. LOVE IT and can't wait to use it again!
I purchased this for a recent trip to the Carribean with my 14 month old son. We loved this float - folds up so compact and takes only a few seconds to set up. My son was very happy and secure floating away and the sun canapoy came in handy since my son doens't like hats that much. Overall, very satisfied - well worth the money - and we got tons of inquiries from other parents at the resort that wanted to purchase one as well.
