When my son became to big for his newborn bathtub I began putting him into the family big tub. I was always scared of him slipping and hitting his head on the tub. So I searched for something that would make me feel more at ease and would increase the safety in the bathtub. After looking at several inflatable tubs I decided to purchase this one because it wasn't oversized. I needed one that would be easy to store in my small house.

This tub is for infants that can sit up unassisted. My son however can not at this time. But being the mother I am I still use it to lay my son in. The reason I do this is because the bottom of this tub is inflatable. My son will try to lift his head and sit up. Then he will let his head fall back and hit the tub. So I just lay my son down in this inflatable tub that way when he does this it doesn't hurt his head. I did notice that if I tried to hold him in the sitting up position he would slide down. I easily fixed this by putting his foam bath mat in the bottom. This made it to where it wasn't slippery.

The tub has an inflatable duck on one side for the kids to play with. This duck squeaks when the child squeezes it. On the other side is a ring toss game with 4 inflatable rings. The tub is equipped with a drain making it easy to empty. It also has a suction cup on the back of the tub for easy drying and storage.

The first time we used the suction cup and stuck the tub to the bathtub backsplash it stayed for 3 days. During that 3rd night we were asleep and heard some commotion. My husband jumped out of the bed, got the gun and went searching for what he thought was an intruder. After he didn't see anything suspicious he went to the bathroom and noticed the the ducky tub had fallen into the real tub. So from now on after use we put it up on the backsplash to let it dry and then store it somewhere else.

The inside part of the tub is a little small measuring 22 inches by 14 inches. My son is only 6 mo old and is almost to long for it already. However, it is made for infants and toddlers that sit up.
