Nah. Especially when they're newborns and their heads are floppy. I'll stick to my old traditional baby tub.

They are AMAZING for colic.

Babies are used to being in a warm, scrunched up environment and those tubs provide that comfort for them. The plastic is more flexible than a regular bucket and the water stays warm.

I haven't used one for my kids, but my best friend used hers for the first couple months of her sons life. It was a lifesaver!

I am a Canadian,breastfeeding (it IS best, there is nothing even close to that nutrition and bond), co sleeping, extended rear facing (if you don't rear face to the maximum of your seat, you're NOT doing all you can to protect your child), baby wearing, Non spanking (I want my kids to respect me, not fear me) ANTI- CIO, homemade baby food making, cloth diapering, organic (chemical free household!) recycling mama to TWO! My husband is my equal and best friend, not my master and I believe basic health care should be a human RIGHT, not a privilege.

That is good that it's more flexible. I haven't seen one in person.

I agree with the PP about the floppy head though.

I saw this on a show and they said that kids loved it because it was similar to the womb...I think it's strange :)

My sister had one and her babies loved it, the babies looked a lot more comfortable than they do in a traditional tub. Personally i have always showered with my babies but if i did baths i think i would buy a tummy tub instead of a traditional one.

 Throughout the world, there exists a group of women who feel mightily drawn to giving care to women in childbirth. At the same time maternal and independent, responsive to a mother's needs, yet accepting full responsibility as her attendant; such women are natural midwives. Without the presence and acceptance of the midwife, obstetrics becomes aggressive, technical, and inhuman.

 It kinda freaks me out to be honest.  For some reason it just makes me nervous.  I'm sure if I have a baby with collic I would try it, but if not, I will probably skip this one.

I think it looks odd and will just stick w/the tub, it'll be easier when it comes time to switch from newborn/infant tub to the regular tub.
