Anyone used one of these? Is it worth the £35?!
Going to Centerparcs with 17 month old twins in a few weeks and want to take them swimming.
Is it quite stable and easy to get babies in one at a time?
I've never taken them swimming before. I could get 2 individual floats but I'm imagining one floating away whilst dealing with the other!!!
Any other swimming advice would be much appreciated!

Hi, I have no idea about the double swim float but Centreparcs do provide free buoyancy jackets for children (rather than forking out for 2 individual floats).

Great thanks for the tip.

I've not seen that float before but wonder if, at 17 months, they might feel a bit restricted? Not sure as we've taken our boys since they were 12 weeks (now 21months) so they're pretty confident in the water. We had them in single swim rings when v young but have been in armbands since they started walking - they like their independance in shallow water. Ds1 always spent some of each session out of the ring as he wasn't happy just bobbing around! Centreparc say under 4s should be supervised 1:1 anyway. Not sure how strictly they enforce it - we're there in a few weeks too!

They don't enforce the 1:1 ratio strictly at all. We were at Longleat in September with our three (DTs then 5 months and DD1 2 and a bit). DH and I held each baby while DD1 bobbed around us in armbands.

Changing rooms were challenging... I found the communal ones worked best - DH taking the "easier" baby and I'd take the other two.

Have a lovely time ladies.

Thanks for all the advice.
I am a bit nervous about having 3 kids in the water but fed up of not getting out and about and doing all the usual things I did with just one in tow! Anyone else felt like that?! All my 3 boys (DS1 age 4 and DTs 17 months) are all confident little monkeys who are always all charging in different directions and off exploring!)
I think I'll take single swim rings and armbands.
Have fun AtLongLast.

We bought one of these in May paid £24.99 took it to Centerparcs, made it so much easier as I have twins and could take them both in the pool together on my own.

Also saw one being used their by two famillies with two with 1yr old and they found it really good as the children could interact and use the play area in the middle (the coloured balls come with it as well)

Hi, yes, we've got one of these. The babies love it. Have even been known to sit them in it in the garden. Mine are a bit younger though. We got it when they were about 10mths.

I'm going to buy one of these for my 8 month twins, we go abroad in 5 weeks!! smile

I also have a 19 month old so this will give me a chance to go in on my own with them!!

Jen80 yes I feel the same, completely lost my independence as I have 3 little ones, it's so hard getting out, there such good babies though.
