Toddler Life Jackets

toddler life jackets

Keep your busy toddler safe on a boat with Coast Guard Approved life vests for toddlers.

A toddler (between 18 months to 3 years old) needs some extra safety features on life jackets - such as a grab handle and strap between the legs. Toddlers less than 30 lbs should use an infant life jacket with a heads-up cushion.

Toddler life jackets are usually labeled for kids 30-50 lbs, listed as U.S. Coast Guard Approved and Type II or Type III, but you may choose one less than 30 lbs if you have a smaller toddler.
