This item is still being sold in the UK but has been recalled in the USA further info below. Danger seems to be of tipping so as long as you NEVER leave baby alone I don't see the problem, but best to be aware of the issue.http:// www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/ 2013/Thermobaby-Bath-Seats- Recalled-by-SCS-Direct/
The first time you bath your new born baby is always a scary time for a new mum. Baby is wiggling and almost certainly screaming while you try to stop her going under the water with one hand and wash her with the other. You're tense and nervous which makes baby tense and nervous and noone has a good time! Thankfully I only went through that once, my Daphne Thermobaby bath seat arrived the very next day from PHP and has made bath time a happy time in my house. The bath seat attaches to the bottom of a normal bath or baby bath with suction caps so it can't slip. The seat is made of plastic and is shaped so the baby sits in it, tilted back, her body and head supported and her arms and legs free to splash in the water. At first I thought it looked slightly uncomfortable but my baby loved it from the first time she sat in it. It has an adjustable piece where she sits so it 'grows' with the baby and can be used up to about 7 months. The baby is totally safe without needing support from you so both hands are free to wash and play with the baby. It costs about £13 and I've only seen it in catalogues but it appears in many including Jojomamanbebe, blooming marvelous and php. I'm so glad I bought this bath seat, my baby is now 17 days old and has not cried in the bath since that very first time, in fact I think she'd happily sit in it all day!
When my son was born I got a Baby Bath support as a present. What a great idea they are! I must say that it made bath time much easier than if I didn't have it. I started to use it straight away with my son being only a few days old until he was big and strong enough to sit on his own. The baby bath support is ergonomic and has sucker pads to ensure that it doesn't move. It allows the baby to wiggles his legs and arms, splash and play, and most of all it allows you to wash your baby hand free, to soap him or even take pictures - things that you can't do if your hands are busy supporting your baby. I got mine as a present but I realised that unfortunately not many places sell them. Some places sell some that don't seem very safe or even confortable. The one I have can be found at www.jojomamanbebe.co.uk and also at Babyworld.co.uk/shop. Their price is around £13.00. Thought I would advice anyone going to Calais, France for whatever reason to look into Carrefour or Toys 'R' Us where they are sold for about £7.00. I think they are a great idea for a present for parents to be.
