I NEED a kiddie pool to labor in for my upcoming planned homebirth. (Our bathtub is way too small).
I bought what I thought was a good one from Target for ten dollars - I need something really cheap.
(I also don't want something that is so big it uses tons of water and takes up the entire room!)
This pool is 16 inches tall and about 66 inches across - a round pool. It says you can fill it up to 80% of its height.
I realized after I measured it that the water would only cover my rear end and 11 inches does not seem like deep enough water to make it worth it!
There is another pool on sale this week that has an inflatable floor! and I think it was 22 inches high.
Is this high enough?
What are everyone's experiences with inflatable pools,
and the sizes that work best?

We used the kind that is 60 inches diameter and 22 inches deep. It is inflatable with an inflatable floor <a must>. It was like $30 regular priced.

it was perfect.. since it is inflatable i could stretch out my legs and it would just make the pool oval shaped, plus the sides were strong enough to lean over during contractions. I loved it and its only 24.99 at kbkids.com

Hi! Definitely go for the deeper one, if your belly isn't mostly covered with water when you sit it isn't nearly as effective...

The Lord bless you,
