With my own kids I had fancier baby bath seats and ended up loving this one, purchased this most recent one for a baby shower. The reason I loved it so much was it was by far the easiest to plop in the tub with me. Baby can lay back and then sit up and kick around when a bit older, and I can get a bath. The mesh holds their slippery little bodies better than plastic ones. Super easy to clean, dries quickly and folds up easily for storage. Save yourself the money on the others, this one is better!
