I received this bath seat as a gift. I'm glad I didn't buy it because if I did then I would say that I wasted my money. For starters, the suction cups on the bottom don't stick. I have a tub with a slip-resistant coating so that's probably why. Most newer homes these days seem to have slip-resistant tubs so why would Safety lst use suction cups that don't work on this type of tub? Also, my son has always been on the tall side of the height percentile. His legs are long so it was always a chore trying to free him from this bath seat. I've read several reviews here on this product and everyone seems to have the same complaints. My son was another one who didn't take much interest in the beads. He was more interested in watching the water being poured and making the water splash with his feet.

One good thing about this seat is that it helps a sitting baby stay seated in the bathtub. I wouldn't recommend using this with a baby who is still unable to sit up on his or her own though. This seat is meant to hold the baby steady and give mom or dad a free hand. One problem I had was when my son was sitting in the seat it was difficult to get in and clean the diaper area. I didn't end up using this seat for very long. Even though this seat is intended to give the parent a free hand I actually thought it was easier just letting him sit in the tub. Also, our bathroom is not much bigger than a broom closet so we had to store this in the hallway and try not to trip over it. Not easy to do if your baby is going through a tough bout of teething and wakes up every night at 3 AM!
Do I recommend this? NO, unless you have an older tub without the slip-resistant surface and your child is not exceptionally tall.
