Re: Best infant and kid lifejackets?

We bought a Bijoux for our new arrival. When he was 8lb it was a little too big, rides up over his chin (although there's no way it can go over his head), at 10.5lbs it's now much better, although if you sit him up in it the chest piece still pushes up into his face a bit. Seemed to be about the best of them out there from all the research I did.
In Canada at least there are no Transport Canada approvals for it because you are not required to carry a lifejacket for anyone that small and hence no standard to approve.
