Is Otteroo a swim aid?

Otteroo is not a swim aid nor a personal flotation or life saving device. Otteroo is a toy and should only be used when a parent is at an arm’s length from the baby and has his/her eyes on the baby at all times while using the Otteroo, or anytime their baby is near a body of water.

However, in the context of swimming, many studies have shown the benefits of early water play. Even though the American Academic of Pediatrics does not recommend formal swim lessons until children are at least one year old, the water familiarity and love of water that the Otteroo floatie encourages may make this transition to the pool easier when the time comes.
