when the baby can seat by himself and has a good head support. he is not too big as you describe him yet.

Bath tubs come with nets? lol I'm going to have to say that whenever you're comfortable bathing your son without a net, you can probably stop using it.

The insert that goes into the baby tub to keep them raised slightly especially the head so they aren't submerged underwater and it is easier to bath them.

What's a net? I used the laundry tub until Renae was too big for it.

I just put my 3mo old in the net in the regular tub. When I have him in the infant one he pushed with his feet against the end and kept slamming his head into the back and would scream bloody murder so I like this much better. My son is 13lbs and 24" long.

I did that until she was too big to fit comfortably. Then I got a rubber ring with suction cups on it for the big tub so she could sit up, but not fall over into the water. You could also bring her in with you when you take a bath.:)

If he seems too big to you, then he probably is. I took my son out of the net around 3 months since he was starting to sit assisted ok at that point. The back of the tub held him fine. By around 5 or 6 months when he was sitting really well unassisted I just used the regular tub until 8 months when he started getting showers with his older brother. I found the net to only be useful when my kids were super small & squirmy.

I've been kind of wondering the same thing. My baby is about 18 pounds now and is a good sitter. I have taken the net out & turned the tub around so she can sit up (the tub has a little infant seat on the one end), however if I turn the tub around it doesn't fit on my kitchen sink (the little feet are made to sit on the sink divider)! Which means I have to put the little tub in the big tub, smash my boobs & get a back ache to bathe my baby! I've thought about just bathing her right in the kitchen sink!

I waited until both of mine could sit unassisted. I found it difficult to hold them up and wash them well.

My son throws a fit if he's in the reclined position in the tub, instead of either sitting or laying in the net. He likes to be more in the water than my daughter did.
