If you plan on swimming this summer and you have little ones, last week the FDA announced a special warning and statement regarding a specific type of flotation device.
Before you take your kids to the pool or beach to cool off, the FDA gas a new warning for parents. Especially those families with infants.
According to reports, the FDA is asking parents to be aware of the dangers of the neck style flotation devices.
“The safety and effectiveness of neck floats to build strength, to promote motor development or as a physical therapy tool, have not been established.”
If you plan to help your kids learn to swim, consider the FDA warning first and also consider asking a professional for help. There are so many great resources that we have available to us here in New York State.
