So it's foam until they are much older
If you don't trust a kids autoinflate then why would you trust an adults?
I put my daughter in an auto at the age of four or five, once she was big enough for one, my reasoning was she needs to be comfortable and mobile, she puts it on before she goes onto the pontoon and doesn't take it off until she back on land again and it doesn't bother her. She also knows how it works and where the toggle is, I'd love to periodically test it when she's being a pain but the Mrs won't let me.
