m.robertson811 NEVER... unless they are old enough to get out of the tub by themself and know what it means to not get under the water with their head when they are alone. i guess that means at around 5-7yrs old. They just need to fall, hit their head, pass out and drown. i might be paranoid, but i rather want to be safe than sorry.
THis is how I feel! My DS is 7 and I will "leave him alone" but I'm right at the door watching. There are sooo many things that could happen and I'd rather be safe than sorry as well. :o)

I does depend on the child and the type of seat they are in. My youngest was in something he couldn't get out of until he was 2. So, from about 18 months-2 I would get things done and check on him every now and again. Once he turned 2 and started sitting in the tub without a seat, I would sit with him. Now, he's almost 3 and he does very well on his own. He doesn't stand or mess with the water, but I'm never more than a second away.
