Relax in the Pool with the Swimways Spring Float {Review & Giveaway}

I am a Swimways Swim Team Ambassador.  I received products free of charge as part of this role.

If you’re a busy mom like me, relaxing doesn’t come to your mind often.  Especially not when it comes to pool time.  Because chances are, if you’re in the water you’re working on swimming with your little one!  However, I recently had the chance to try out the Swimways Spring Float for those moments of solitude (also known as when grandma has the kiddos) and let me tell you, relaxing and the pool now go completely together in my mind.

The Swimways spring float is the perfect size to take to any destination for a little rest and relaxation.  I have actually discovered that it’s a great size for mom or for older kids and the little ones love enjoying it too!

Spring Float1

So, what do I love about this float?  Well, pretty much everything but there are several factors that really make it stand out to me.  Let’s start with it’s spring technology.  This allows it to open and close instantly, for easy assembly and break down when, say, you have your hands full with little ones at the pool.  It is super easy to close down and comes with an elastic strap to keep it secured.

Spring Float2

And once you take the elastic piece off, the float pops out to be the perfect size for anyone!

Spring Float3

With it’s stretch mesh accents, it conforms to your body to allow each person a perfect fit for comfort as they float and also allows cool water to come through the bottom to prevent overheating as you relax in the water.

Spring Float 4

In my mind, this is the perfect float for summer time fun and I can’t wait to take it with us on our beach trip later this year.  That way, while the hubby watches the kids, I’ll be floating away the day in complete relaxation – just like I deserve!

But, as any mom knows, the pool is not all about you – in fact, it’s mostly about your kids and swimming fun!  That’s why it’s super important to know that your children are safe around water.  And one way to do this is to make sure the have appropriate water safety and swim instruction!  And now, I’ve got a great resource for you!  Be sure to pick up a few great tips from the Swimways blog and water safety expert Mario Vittone on how to choose the perfect swim instructor for your child!  After all, you’ll be able to relax on your float much better knowing that your little one has the basic skills they need to be able to swim on their own!

So, are you ready to enjoy the rest of the summer in the water?  You’ve got the tools to make sure your kiddos have great water skills.  Hopefully you’ve got lots of Swimways items to make pool time lots of fun!  And now, we want to give one lucky winner a Swimways Spring Float so that after all the fun you have with the kiddos, you can take a few minutes of relaxation for you!

    I always choose spring floats over regular inflatable ones for the pool. They are perfect for staying cool in the water without being fully submerged. You also do not have to worry about awkwardly climbing up on top of those blow up floats with the chance of falling in the water as soon as you get up on it (Story of my life-haha)
