One of the things you don't know the value of when you are preparing for a baby is a good baby tub. I think most people assume that you can wash your baby in the sink, but you honestly cant safely do that until they are old enough to sturdily sit up on their own (which takes about 6 good months in most cases). I love this tub because it transitions from newborn, to infant, to toddler all in one! The net is a great concept, and I used it the first couple times, but I felt like it was getting in the way of washing the babies back. The infant side works perfectly for newborns as well and I was able to gently shift her enough to clean her very well. I love the little compartment on the end that holds your baby wash and wash clothe. When the baby gets older, you turn the tub around and use the other end where there is a backrest that sits straight up. I had the same tub for my son and used it for the first year, but I was pressured to getting rid of it (living with in-laws at the time) once my son could sit in the tub. I regretted it and got another tub that was a pain. I will keep this one until my little one outgrows it because its easy to fill, it saves water, stays clean (I just rinse it out between uses) and makes bath time simple. I definitely recommend!
