Pros Cons
  • Sturdy, adjustable, feels safe
  • Bulky to store, quickly outgrown

I received this tub as a gift before my daughter was born.  As a first-time mom with no experience around babies, I was nervous about holding a wet, slippery newborn, and this tub made that less intimidating.  The sling is secure, and the tub fit nicely into my kitchen sink.  My DD only used this tub for a very short time.  I eventually started getting in the tub with her, and then once she could sit on her own I put her in the regular bathtub for baths. 

 

Because it was only used for a short time and it is pretty bulky to store, I would instead go with a simple pad or sponge for the sink if I were doing it over.  The toddler seat portion is pretty useless, because by the time the child can sit in the toddler seat s/he can sit perfectly fine in the bathtub. 

 

Overall, it was comforting to have, but I'd say experienced mamas can pass on it.
