    Honestly, IMO I think it's a waste of money sweetheart.
    Especially for a newborn, they aren't in the bath for very long.
    I just hold my LO in the bath with my hand underneath her arm. :flower:

    Well I can't speak from experience at all, but if you think its worth it than go for it. I've seen quite a few stories where parents have dropped their LOs because they're quite slippery. Will it only be suitable for a newborn or could you use it for a good few months? Because if you can then I would say its worth the money but as I say, I can't speak from experience :)

    I wouldn't bother personally.

    When she was little we would just hold her up, then when she was 4 months we started putting her in the big bath. x

    I just bought a little bath sponge to lay my LO on when she was teeny and it was really cheap, like $3 or something like that. If they have one of those in the UK that would be good to get. I even use it now for her to sit on in the bath so she doesn't slip.

    Waste of money, just hold them with your arms in a baby bath, thats what I do with my LO and had no problems. Newborns can't go in the bath for long anyway as they get to cold.

    we had a baby support, for the first few weeks its a life saver, I was really nervous with washing lo and it really helped, I wouldn't get one for a second baby but for the first its really helpful even if just for a short while:flower:

    Got a baby bathtub at a garage sale for $3 (about 1.8 pounds). Mom says I shouldn't need any sort of extra support thing in there but I can't answer from experience.

    waste of money, they are made of really hard plastic and Max hated it because it wasnt comfy in the slightest. to be honest we washed him in the sink for the first couple of months and after that we just held him in the bath while we washed him as its really quick in the early months. it's only recently that we bought an aquapod (from mothercare) and Max loves his baths.

    I wouldn't bother with it
    When Lyrik was small it took me like 5 minutes to bath her.
