Saw in mothercare a baby seat with mat at £25 but is it practical or better just a bath seat. What do you have to save your back and so that my 4 yr old can share and play together. Also going on hols next month do you bother to take one or can you get inflatables due to bulky size?

I just got a seat for £10.99 from (I think). no bath mat. DS shares bath with DD (4 in 2 weeks) and they play very well together. I'll see if I can find a link for you.

I wouldn't bother. They will soon be sitting up and it shouldn't be a problem. Just make sure you have a bath mat to stop them slipping. Save your cash smile.

i wouldnt bother too as they usually start sitting up between 6 - 8 months.

I used the mothercare aquapod (the one you have seen) for ds, and was very pleased with it. £25 is quite expensive, but you should be able to sell it on afterwards.
(if you're in Herts/Beds then let me know, as I can sell you mine!)

niggle/biglips - they are meant to be sitting to use the aquapod anyway. It just stops them from toppling over, which is v useful when sharing a bath with an older child who tends to move about a lot!

here you go. It's £12.99 but I find it good

My two share a bath without problems (2.3 year gap) - neither has been in any sort of seat - waste of money if you ask me.

I like mine because yes, DS is sitting but DD is very lively and I like the added safety it gives him.

i did actually buy a baby support (a lying down one) for the bath from a nct sales for £2.00 (ans also i do have one of those bath swivelseat...mine is rubbish now as it doesnt stick anymore (it used to be dd1's but dd2 is using it so i think the suckers are knackered now so i have to hold the seat..but otherwise they are really good).

i would have a go putting it netmums to ask for one as its more local and easy for u to pick up.
