Some child and adult hammocks are designed for use in swimming pools. This can be great fun for the kids, especially those who are tired of swimming and just want to float on the water. It's very important to know the limitations of a pool hammock before your child uses one. Is it better to enter the hammock by lifting the child into it, or is it better for them to enter in the shallow end of the pool? Some pools are too deep for a child to stand up in, even in the shallow end. You may need to assist your little ones getting in and out. Never let a child stand in a pool hammock, the risk of tipping and tangling in the hammock under water is too great.
