size - Relatively small so uses very little water, and doesn't take up much space in our small apartment
contented baby - Our baby is happy at bathtime in the pod, he's four months old and 16 lbs, and still fits well. However, we never tried a different bath so we don't know if the pod is the reason for his comfort
inexpensive - compared to an infant bath tub this is definitely cheaper
Plastic smell - When I opened it, it had a terribly strong chemical smell, ESPECIALLY the little pad. I am glad I opened it before the baby arrived because it needed to be washed and aired out literally for weeks to make the smell go away. Not a good first impression.
head control issues - there's nothing supporting your baby's head, you must have your hand on it at all times in such a way that you're controlling the weight and keeping it from going in any direction. This is really hard to do one-handed. So you really could use two hands for head control, hence my wife and I tended to always do bath time together; one holds, one washes. Every time I gave him a bath alone, I wished I had a nice reclining bath tub so at least the weight of his head would be safely supported.
After he gained head control it got easier, however you still have to keep a hand on it since babies who can't sit up on their own will of course suddenly pitch forward or back, but that is easier to control.
Reaching the diaper area - Difficult at best. Imagine changing a diaper on a baby that you're holding sitting up. It is possible but why would you? Their legs are folded up and you can't get into all the folds and crevices without lifting the baby so you can move his/her legs around to get behind the knees, etc.Read more ›
I realize the whole idea is silly - why use this when you could just use the sink or one of those whale tubs?
Simple. Babies LOVE the warm, cozy feel of this that no other infant bathtub can provide. Traditional infant tubs require that the baby lay in a shallow pool of water and be cold and wet during their bath. (How many newborns do you know that HATE bath time?) The sink is great and inexpensive - but difficult and uncomfortable for all involved.
The Tummy Tub/WashPOD, however, allows the baby to sink into a warm bath and enjoy that cozy womb feeling again.
This all sounds SO romantic and cheesy doesn't it?
You'll be saying these SAME cheesy things when you see what magic this tub is on a fussy, inconsolable newborn. Many of the first, elusive smiles and laughs happened when our baby boy was in his WashPOD. It became part of our nightly routine and I have to say, I nearly cried when I realized he had outgrown it. It is SO cute to see them scrunch up into the newborn fetal position in their tub, and to watch their tension and frustration and fussies literally wash away.
I would like to respond to negative comments about this tub that you may hear in reviews or online:
a. It's hard to clean the baby in there! ! !!
Ok. Yes, it is a tight fit. We used this for 4 months, however, and shocker. . .our baby did not come out of it smelling like a gym rat! Even just a quick dunk in there got him perfectly clean enough without drying out his skin. We used California Baby Wash in the water and he would come out smelling SO good and clean as could be.
b. OMG they could drown! ! !Read more ›

My sister in law sent this to us, and when I opened the box I laughed and thought "what is this?" Then baby arrived and we tried it out. Now we're converts! My 3-mo old loves it. If she's having a rough evening, cranky and crabby and out of sorts, we just give her a bath. She settles in and splashes and likes looking at herself in the mirror. She seems to be very secure, warm and cozy in it, which is great. I have to lift her up to wash her bottom and legs, but that's OK. My son hated baths at this age, and I'm glad she's not stressed by the whole bathing process. I don't know what we'll do when she doesn't fit into it anymore.
