Caution with chunky babies
on December 14, 2011
This is a good bath seat, provided your child can fit in it. My little super chunk weighs 20 lbs and the seat sort of pinches his thighs due to the narrow leg openings. This happens regardless of where I position his bottom (towards the back of the seat or more forward doesn't seem to matter) -- his thighs are that enormous. It's really quite impressive now that I think of it. No wonder everyone asks if they can squeeze them all the time. And here I thought that's how strangers say hello to babies.
In any case, Chubby McTalks-a-Lot doesn't seem to mind it since sitting up is totally the bee's knees right now. The upright position allows him to take in all the wonders of bath time, from splashing to rubber duckies. And oh dear lord does he love him some rubber duckies!
The rest of the seat is quite open and allows for reaching, twisting, and all the squirming your little tike can muster. And to chime in with the other posters, it REALLY IS a pain to have to use both hands to undo the T-bar latches. But it's less of a pain than attempting to hold, lather, rinse, and generally avoid drowning a slippery drooling miniature version of Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. So it's a winner in my book.
