What are they meant for? They look shocking!
Ive seen this somewhere, perhaps in china, where babies ar ein quite a deep pool & swim with those floaties around their neck. It was quite a 'luxurious' place - kind of like a day spa for babies, said to promote relaxation, feeling of being in the womb etc whilst suspended in water. I think the thing around the neck looks quite uncomfortable, especially in pics where their whole body was floating in deep water (not sitting in a bath like here), and i would also be concerned about safety - a bit like bath seats, if it gives parents a false sense of security & they leave baby unattended in the bath for a moment or dont have them in arms reach. I personally wouldnt use it, but if the baby enjoys it AND if it were used safely, i think theyre fine if others choose them
I saw them too. Looks deadly to me, no way on earth I would let any child near them. What are they thinking??
Edit: pic mor3 similar to what i saw below. All the photos ive seen, the babies are not in arms reach of an adult, which really concerns me. Also it goes against my safety instincts to put something aroumd my babies neck like that - i would be worried about their breathing, especially when their body is suspended in the water like that. It is supposed to give them a natural, womb like feeling, but it looks so unnatural to me...

No way in he'll would I use these. All the pics I have seen their are adults in sight and more than one baby. Scary beyond belief Imo.
Wowza!!! Absolutely no way would my child use one of these.

That's kinda what I was thinking...
Like, the swim rings where it's around the bubs waist, even that isn't safe!! Bubs can easily slip through and now this is around the neck? It would have to be tight in order for bub not to slip out!
Just freakin weird. I don't understand how anyone could think this was a good idea.
