This one doesn’t have a shade but it’s so cheap and practical, has fantastic reviews (from the top reviews, it seems to best fit a 9–18 month old) and is a great thing to have on hand for baby’s first dips in the pool.
Brianna, a 101 mama, used this on a lake in Michigan and gave it raving reviews. It gets babe familiar with “swimming” face down and has a harness to keep him/her secure.
There are 3 sizes so can accommodate young babes or older toddlers learning to swim.
This is also for the itty bitties, starting at 3 months and should work up until 9 months, depending on your babe’s size. It accommodates an infant lying down belly up and has a buckle to keep them in. The sun canopy is adjustable which is nice too.
I feel like I see a baby in this float every time I go to a pool. Probably because it’s so cheap and an Amazon bestseller, but also all the mamas who have it are satisfied and have used it 2 summers in a row. It gets extra points for being decent looking since a lot of them aren’t 🤣
This one is much pricier than the kiddie float (above) and IMO, not very aesthetically pleasing BUT that said, it has a lot more features to keep your little one’s attention: an octopus that can be turned around 360 degrees, a squeaker, rattle, stacking rings, and soft touch star. Also, its canopy is removable.
