Loved ours! Used it until about 7 months. We had a Tummy Tub. Long story, but we stopped using it abruptly bc it became an emergency pot for one of my houseplants. Um, the plant is still in it actually....

ETA pics:

2 months? (she looks like uglee-baby here, idk why)



6 months (she went through a phase of making this face at everything)



You can see we used a towel for a bit of padding behind. It also cut down on water usage.

These things look like a great idea! I didn't get one bc it seemed kind of pricey but if you have the expendable income I would try it!

I've never seen the tummy tub, but I've seen the Prince Lionheart one and it looks like it would be outgrown very fast.

Her cord stump fell off after 3 days, so she only had one sponge only bath. We used it every night after that until the plant fiasco. I might be willing to get an actual pot and FSOT it. Idk how cheap it would be w/ shipping though. Hmmm....

Re: Anyone use the bucket tubs? tummytub..ect

We used and loved a (generic) tummy tub--I think it was the shantalla tub. We only used it till about six months, but that's because our daughter would refuse to bend her legs to sit down in it. It was great though. She loved it as a newborn/small infant. We'd put her in it to calm her down some times if she was upset. Cord was no problem. I think that might be myth. Our postpartum nurse was the one who initiated her first bath at 2 or 3 days old, and I'd say she knows better than I.

They aren't nearly as expensive here as they are in the US, but I think they're worth the money.

Not sure about using it while the cord is still on, we used ours from about 1-6mo. Here is my girl at 4mo., she loved it!
