I looked at this for a few months before deciding to buy it as I thought it was a total gimmick but I have to say I'm really glad I got it. My boy was 6lbs 10oz at birth so pretty small but he can sit up in this by himself - I've been using this since he was 10 days old. I used a normal baby bath for his first bath & it didn't go well - he was slipping & sliding everywhere. I got this and the bum wedge really works well and helps hold him upright - he does fall to the side a bit if I'm not holding him but not enough to get his face in the water. I don't need to hold on to him the whole time he's in it which means I can play with him more rather than grip on to him for dear life. I use it in my kitchen sink - it's too tall for me to comfortably use on the counter top. I would definitely recommend this as it's helped take the stress out of bathing.
