    Default Infant life vest

    I had a couple ask me recent here I got my infant life vest. I got them free at

    Alaska Injury Prevention Center
    3701 Tudor suite 105

    It right next to the Tudor Square mall and a car wash.

    They are CG approved

    Default Infant life vests

    All sizes should be available (also) as loaners through the Kids Don't Float life jacket loaner program; if you can't find the right size, let me know!

    So I finally talked with Alaska Injury Prevention about infant life jackets, they are no longer the primary source for getting these jackets. They suggested I contact the other two folks mentioned in this thread. Just thought folks would want to know.

    I just wanted to bring this thread TTT. We were just in Friday Harbor, WA, and saw these lifejackets for sale in their marine store. They're made in Canada and seem VERY well made and comfortable. http://www.salusmarine.com/ I picked up the Baby vest...

    I haven't seen them available anywhere here in the US.
