The BabyFloat meets all the requirements for toys in Europe and therefore has the EN13138-1 CE mark. Everywhere we have thought about making the BabyFloat as ideal as possible for the child. This ensures that the strap is seamless, so that no sharp edges puncture the child's neck. In addition, the strap does not hurt the child's neck and is comfortable. Furthermore, the BabyFloat is made of phthalate-free plastic and has been intensively tested.
The BabyFloat can be used safely, provided a number of conditions are met. It is essential that the child can lift his or her neck when lying on his or her tummy. This tests the baby's neck strength. The baby's neck must be strong enough to use the BabyFloat. If your child cannot hold up his or her own neck when lying on his or her tummy, it is strongly advised not to use the BabyFloat. In addition, the child must weigh a minimum of 3 kilograms and the child may weigh a maximum of 12 kilograms. Make sure that the child's chin is always on the chin rest when the strap is attached around the neck. Also make sure that the strap is not too tight, but also not too loose around the neck. The BabyFloat fits well if a finger can be placed between the baby's neck and the BabyFloat. Finally, the bath in which the baby is going to bathe must be filled with sufficient water. Make sure that the child's toes can just touch the bottom of the bath. If the child can set off against the bottom of the bath, the water is too shallow and the bath must be filled with extra water. If the pool cannot be filled with extra water and the child can still settle against the bottom, the child is too big for the pool and it is better to 'swim' in a shallow pool. Never leave your child alone in the water and keep an eye on your child at all times!
