Most Helpful Reviews on the The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Newborn-to-Toddler Tub.

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) –  A friend of mine suggested this tub because of the “hammock feature.” Your baby is cradled in a “hammock” that attaches to the tub, making it super easy to bathe your newborn. The pads in the tub are soft and they are mold-resistant…. I also like how it has a built in bath caddy to put baby’s shampoo/soap/toys/washcloths whatever. My only two complaints are that the plug DOES NOT change color when water is too hot…. My other complaint is that is is bulky and big…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  •  3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – … I loved the fact that I didn’t have to hunch over the tub which hurts my back, knees, elbows and gets me all wet in the process. The tub fit right over the sink and was so convient!! The sling worked great and when baby got a little bigger we just used the reclining infant position. Then at about 4 1/2 mo, I started disliking this tub…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – the pros: I have used this every day for the last four months. I love that it fits perfectly over our double kitchen sink and is nice and secure….  The cons: The newborn sling thing is kind of floppy and don’t feel secure…. Overall I would highly recommend this tub for bathing your infant. ! I will definitely use it with our next baby…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – We started using this tub as soon as my daughter was able to take a bath. She is now 10 weeks old. The sling was ok when she was a newborn. The problem is the contoured seat is really in the wrong place. When she was in the sling, it pressed on her bottom…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – Honesty, it worked out, but it gets a thumbs down from me. It fits in the sink (huge huge plus), drained in the sink very easily, rinsed out easily, never got moldy (rinsed after each use), dried fast, was light-weight, was easy to maneuver, and seems very durable…. The problem with it I found was the newborn sling that came with it really never worked well….  I also think it’s a design flaw that the hump is not removable…. (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – … The sling at first was great and the reservoire was where I held my “tools” for bathtime. It fit perfectly over my kitchen sink and bathing was GREAT and baby was relaxed…. This is a baby tub that is really only great for the first 6 months, which is probably why it’s not so expensive….
