The tub has made lists of both the best and worst things to buy baby. Its proponents say it creates a womb-like experience and helps alleviate colic. The tub may be billed as “nearly as nice as mommy’s tummy,” but it doesn’t take a traditionalist to see the problems with this newfangled product. Aside from making it difficult to wash the business end of a baby, it looks to us like an accident waiting to happen. We haven’t tested the tub or similar products, but have concerns that it could tip over much too easily, especially when placed on the pedestal. More concerning, it’s not covered by U.S. safety standards that apply to baby bath seats and tubs.
Finally, like any household pail this one can pose a hazard to toddlers if left unattended with even a small amount of water in it. Because they are top heavy, little tykes can topple head first into a bucket and drown, as the Consumer Product Safety Commission often cautions. In our view, this is one idea for baby that should have been thrown out with the bath water.
You slate a product and admit in the same article that you have not tested it....very professional...not!
