I often babysit my youngest nephew and I was nervous about bathing him without a baby tub for safety reasons. I have always hated the old style baby tubs that has you sitting the baby on the foam. I do not think those type are all that sanitary because the foam holds in germs unless you bleach it, and then you have your baby touching those chemicals. I bought this model solely for the sling in it. The baby can lay in it and the water pools beneath them so their skin isn't touching whatever germs might be beneath them. There is an indicator plug that came with it to tell you if the water is too hot or cold which is a novelty and cute. Honestly if you cannot tell my running your forearm under the water if it is too hot or cold, you do not need to be bathing a helpless infant. However, it is nice to know that the company cares enough to help even the most clueless of people how to safely bathe a child. Versatility I love the fact it is small enough to sit in my sink. A lot of the baby tubs are so big you have to put them in the bathtub and honestly after awhile that hurts my back. With this tub I can bathe my nephew in the sink without straining my back. Durability So far it has been very durable. Ease of Use This product has made my life so much easier! I wish they had baby bath tubs with as many features as this when my kids were babies. Safety This product helps to prevent the baby falling because they are secure in their tub. Ease of Cleaning A lot easier to clean then the kind with the foam bottoms.
