I noticed that no one else really likes this seat. I can't imagine why not, it's exactly what you would expect in a bath seat. I received it as a shower gift and I think it is great, as great as a bath seat gets anyway.

I am on my third child, so I am very experienced in the baby department. Take it from me, all bath seats are really a pain in the rear(probably for your baby too, the actual seat looks pretty hard). I have yet to find a seat that your child doesn't slide around in. This one is no exception, but the non-skid surface is a little less slippery.
I believe that most folks don't care for their seat because they put an infant of inappropriate age in it. You must wait until a child reaches a certain age or size to utilize this item. You want your child to be sturdy enough to balance themselves somewhat, but don't let that give you a false security. Always have one arm on your child, no matter what age or size they are. If they are small enough for this bath accessory, then they are too small to be left unsupervised.
The entire reason I love this seat is because of the swivel action. It makes it so much easier to get all areas of your baby clean. Also it frees up one hand so that you aren't scrubbing and balancing at the same time.
So if you plan to put your baby in a bath seat, keep in mind that they all have the same problems. But this one is a little more accessible than the others.
