The issue is that when you put the Tummy Tub on its included stand and put a baby in it, it sure looks a lot like a baby-in-a-blender. I imagine it's something like what we'd see from Anne Geddes if she turned evil (or more evil, depending on your opinion of her work.)
Despite the imagery, it seems like it would be difficult to actually wash a kid all squished up in there. Personally, I'm a big fan of the Japanese ofuro -- deep, straight-sided soaking tubs -- but I'm not sure this is all that practical. Still, there are a lot of testimonials on the site that make it out to be the best thing since sliced bread. What do you think? Is this a good idea? Would you try it with your newborn? Or would you be too worried about someone accidentally hitting the "puree" button?
