Re: Baby PFD recommendations

Took our 8 month old out. Not much variety/options available in this market. Here is what we did.

We used a tether to tether her babyseat to padeyes in the cockpit. We did *NOT* strap her into the car seat. We kept her in a Lil Mustang infant/baby life jacket *AT ALL TIMES*...weven in the baby seat. She didn't like it, was uncomfortable. But safety matters when you sail the ocean...
