  • No I wouldn't.  BECAUSE of the heat.  If there was a feature that turned the heat down, then I'd turn it down and let my kids in.

  • I wouldn't. I would be worried about overheating and dehydration.

  • Yes, if I was in there with them. My daughter loved it, and we only stayed for about 30 min, but my niece thought it was burning her! She freaked out and wouldn't stay in.

  • Don't all hot tubs have the feature to turn the heat down?

  • Well, my 2 year old and I spent most of the summer in our hot tub, but with the heat turned way down. So basically, it was a heated pool, heh. I wouldn't let him in at the highest temperature, no.

  • I should add, since others are adding it, that it wasn't the normal HOT heat...it was around 80

  • I let mine, I was there with him and he only liked it on his feet anyways because it was so warm. They're not going to overheat or dehydrate if you're sitting right there with them, they'll say I'm hot, and get out... and water should always be available anyways when swimming because the sun/chlorine dehydrate you.
