is it worth it to start using for a 6 month old ? I've had it since she's born but haven't used it & cant dedide if I should keep it or return it, Can u use it if u have shower doors that slide, I think it would be easier with a curtain because then u have much more room, I would only have half the room , am I making sense ?
I used the ring that suctions to the bottom of the bath but it's hard to really wash the baby from the neck down !
Dont know what to do , what do u all think, I read below how so many of u love the tub, I just dont understand how i'' be able to get to her because of the shower door.

I don't have doors, so I am not sure. I used the infant Euro in the kitchen. I sat the tub inside of a large shallow under bes stoarge thing & filled it w/water. Nolan was too big for the tub at 5 mos.
I totally agree w/you on the ring seats, total waste imo. I use the Munchkin blow up rubber ducky bath for Nolan right now.

My DS is 11 months and I still use the Eurotub. He is just over 19 lbs and a bit over 30 inches, if that helps. He still fits in there fine. I really like using it because he can lie down or sit up, and if he falls over it's not an issue.

Hmm. It is a large tub. Why not try fitting it in there and see how far you can reach around the doors? I love mine but have full access. Until you decide, here's an idea: When I visited my mom out of state, we used a tiny square laundry basket in the kitchen sink and put a towel across the bottom and over the edge (in a seat shape). It was taller than the sink so kept her protected from that hard surface, the towel kept her from sliding, and the water could only get an inch high because of the basket holes. The spray faucet made it a breeze to wash her! She was four months and sat up fine that way, especially since she kept her feet against the opposite side. HTH!

Hi, DS is only 3.5 mos but we use the eurobath in the tub & we have sliding doors. It works fine-- esp. since the bath's length is only about the length of one door anyways. DS sits closest to the spigot in the contoured part of the tub, which is about 1/2 the length of the whole eurotub... Have you tried putting the e-tub in your tub yet, just to see how it may work for you? Our toilet is right next to the tub, so we just sit on it to bathe ds.
We've also used it outside of the tub (on the floor, on a table), but I prefer using the tub since ds looooves splashing lately, and I don't have to worry about spilling water on the floor carrying it around... But, it's totally usable outside of the bathroom as well.

I didn't buy my Eurobath until DD was too big for her infant tub (maybe around 5 months - it is sooo hard to remember these things)so unless your child is big I think 6 months is a great time to start using the Eurobath. We are still using the Eurobath at 17 months and will continue to use it for some time as our bathtub is too deep for me to comfortably bath her in and she has plenty of room in the Eurobath.
We don't have a shower door so I can't be much help - I'd just put it in there and "pretend" to see if it will work.

DD is almost 13 months and we are still using our Eurobath and I can't imagine it any other way. She absolutely LOVES it.
We have two full baths so I have it set up in the one with the shower curtain since I didn't want to mess with the shower doors. We actually got a folding portable tray table from Costco (kinda like a TV table but WAAAAY sturdier and made of resin and steel) and set it up in the bathtub and put the Eurobath on top of that. DH has bad knees and a bad back so it hurts to bend down and over the tub.
DD is still uses the reclining side when I rinse off her hair but for the most part she's sitting up and playing. I can see us using this Eurobath for at least another year... I LOVE IT!
