This sling is just what we've been looking for and I wish we'd had it during the first 5 months. Unlike the big bath sponge we used earlier, this one is lightweight mesh fabric that lets the water and air pass through easily so it dries completely once you're done with no mildew smell to contend with.

The incline is great because you can pour water on the baby's tummy and there's less chance of it pooling around her chin or getting in her mouth. It also allows baby to see what you're doing. We fill a big bowl with water at her feet and dip water out of that to soap up the washcloth and rinse as needed. Since the sling is inclined, she can watch us do each step.

Also, since the Bath Sling folds into such a compact size, once it's dry between baths you can store it in a drawer, under the sink, or even take it in your suitcase for trips. It'd be nice if it were a smidge longer: we didn't get it until our baby was 5 months old and as we head for month seven, she's getting a little long for it, but we use it anyway and just let her legs extend a little more past the end.

If you're debating bath products, skip the sponge (hard to squeeze water out, bulky to store, especially when wet) and get this sling. You can us it from birth to at least 6 months or longer and by then, some babies can sit in the tub without help, so you can get a lot of use out of it.

I have 3 different versions of these, and this is the best one for 2 reasons. First, it fold and is space saving for under sink storage. Secondly, it is all mesh with no "stuffed" or padded parts, or sponge parts. This dries out quickly, where others have to drip dry for hours and days and the ones with padding start to smell moldy very quickly. Also nice to have one for travel if you are staying out of town overnight. It snaps into position and is very secure for little ones. Love it!

skip the bulky plastic things. this is all you need for the bath. my baby loves it. it is small, soft and easy to clean.
update- now that my baby has hit 3 1/2 months she is outgrowing this seat and slides out as she kicks in the water so only buy this for your newborn. it is worth it for the first few months. my baby has never been afraid of the bath... maybe because she was comfortable and secure in this seat.

We were given the smaller non-fold and store bath sling for our daughter. We found it much easier to bathe her in it than in a tub. The sling helps the baby feel secure, and makes it possible for only one person to bathe a newborn, rather than having one parent hold him/her and the other do the bathing. We bought the bigger sling when my daughter outgrew the small one. In general, I always recommend bath slings to new parents, rather than bath tubs (we have 2 tubs and both were used once). So as a whole, I would indeed recommend bath slings, especially the ones from Summer.

We decided to get this particular sling when our son was born, because the big sling was a bit of a pain to store (still too wet to take out of the tub) when it was time to bathe our now-toddler-aged daughter. The idea was to fold this up and put it up against the tub wall to dry. Well, not so easy. The construction requires the piece of metal propping up the head to clip to another piece at the bottom, basically forming a triangle that holds the baby at an angle. Unfortunately, the part that clips the two bottom pieces together is EXTREMELY difficult to clip on and off. It takes quite a bit of strain from both of us to unclip it to store it, and we ended up propping it up, unfolded, against the tub wall, which we were doing with big sling anyway. This took away all the potential advantage of having a folding sling, as this sling is much smaller than the normal small sling. I was only willing to compromise on the size if it allowed easy storage, so we went back to the big sling.

However, it is possible to fold it, and if you're not doing it that often, it can be a blessing. We folded it and took it on vacation with us.

When I had my last child almost 9 years ago, I had something similar to this that I loved. I purchased this one, thinking it would be similar. I was wrong. I can't pinpoint the difference since it hs been so long, but this doesn't seem to have any benefit. It doesn't fit in the infant tub very well at all, and seems incredibly "tight", which makes it difficult to place the baby on.

Our sink wouldn't fit the baby tub and putting the baby tub in the big tub was just too awkward to manage on many levels. This sling is great when traveling. Also good for getting your little one to relax while you wash all those nooks and crannies you can't get to when he/she is sitting. I give it four stars only because I wish it were bigger! My son outgrew it at about a VERY squirmy 6 months / 27 inches / 17 pounds...

My wife and I love this bath sling. It allows us to have our baby in the water in a comfortable and safe manner. The mesh of the sling allows the baby to be wet from the water while keeping her in a stationary safe and comfortable position. The folding feature allows us to store it under the sink when not in use. We will have one of these as long as we have a child that will fit it.
