The Otteroo gives babies and young children independent mobility. For kids with special needs it’s an invaluable tool.
It’s not just Dr. Kim who sees potential in the product. Baptist Health Hospital in Kentucky is interested in using neck floaties to treat babies in the NICU. And a professor with San Francisco State University is studying how the Otteroo may affect a baby’s development.
It’s unlike any other “floatie” you’ve seen before. The Otteroo is a new way to give your baby or young child some independent mobility. Plus, it could help make the transition to swimming easier.
The Otteroo is the greatest way to get your baby to join in on water fun in the pool.
The doughnut-shape neck floatie allows water babies to discover movement of their arms, legs and feet in the bathtub or pool. Made with toxin-free plastic, it’s pediatrician — and Ciara — approved. Sweet!
Inventor Tiffany Chiu didn’t learn how to swim until college. She designed the Otteroo to help babies learn to love the water before fear sets in. It also teaches babies to control their bodies.
“There are a lot of benefit with such a device. It allows an infant to really free explore a natural environment which is water for them,” Joseph Kim, M.D., an advisor to Otteroo, said.
Suddenly my emotions stopped feeling woozy, and they were just like, “Okay, this shit is the cutest. Ever.” Because he was loving it, and he was FINE, and he could breathe, and I was RIGHT THERE.
