How nice for moms to have this bath support, because at some point, the newborn bathtub with a net or sling becomes too small and baby too big and heavy. However, as long as the little one cannot sit yet, if you don’t want to hold him in your arms or place him in one of those cumbersome bath flowers that don’t dry well in a sink, this is a very convenient support to have. It bends slightly, mine did not get moldy, it cleans easily, and it keeps baby’s head and upper body out of the water, while still allowing him to splash with his legs. Parental supervision is required at all times, evidently. Baby could potentially roll off. Just place it in the big tub and put very little water in. Baby won’t be submerged wholly (and yes, it’s a waste of water to fill parts of a big tub and just reach his feet), so you’ll still need to scrub him with a wash cloth. It dries off quickly and even has a loop to hang it up for storage.
Also, mom will need a foam knee pad, so it doesn’t hurt when kneeling so long in front of the bath tub. All feasible! Lyons Cub was a fan, as you can see. He learned not to be afraid of the water with that thing. He used to cry before. And after this bath support, he used the Summer My Bath Seat (in aqua) for more independent sitting up practice, before he transitioned unsupported into the big tub.
