Baby spring floats acclimate the youngest of swimmers to the water. While you can’t leave your baby unattended, they do let you move through the water without your baby in your arms. These floats need to have a secure seat that’s at the right height for your baby. Models with adjustable seats, harnesses, and waistbands offer the safest water play while leaving your child free to wiggle around. A UPF protective canopy keeps delicate skin safe in the sun, but it's best if it detaches for versatility and easier packing/storage. Removable canopies are perfect if an indoor pool is part of your water fun. You’ll have to decide between a solid ring design or an inflatable model based on how much portability you need.
