Question about the Duo Aquapod .

Hello to everyone,

I am thinking of buying the Duo AquaPod from mothercare for my 10 months twins to make bath time more fun for them as have been bathing one at a time until now, and wanted to hear any feedback from people that have used it??? Please let me know if you would recommend it or not ?(

here is the link: Duo AquaPod™ : mothercare- Nursery Equipment, Maternity Clothes & Baby Shop

I've been using my aquapod for about two months now. It was great when they were still a bit wobbly as it gave the the support and now it stops Otis attackign Ava too much as it separates them. However not sue at ten months how much longer you'll get out of it. If you're a member of a twins club ask around if anyone has one second hand.

Having said all this I love mine it just makes bathing them easier.

I have just starting using the duo aquapod and love it. My twins are 6.5mths and just ready for it, but they are quite close and not sure how long it will last, but I do think it is great and my two look at each other, smile and giggle as well as play with the bath toys together.

I can't comment on the Duo as I only have one baby, but we have the single and it is utterly fantastic and has transformed bathtime. My LO loves to sit and play with his toys and splash about and it means my back doesn't hurt quite so much as I'm not bent over supporting a stone and a half of baby!!

I have the duo and it is great. The girls really love sitting opposite each other and playing. It certainly makes bath times more fun although you still need 2 people. I also sometimes take 1 seat out so they can ly down and kick too. My girls are 8mths now and it is only really now I use it as they are more confident sitting up.

We've had our duo for a few months now and it's been great. The kids love sitting and playing in the bath and it's helped loads with the transition from the baby bath into the big bath for them.

The only downside was that they were a bit too close to each other after a while (my guys are pretty tall for their age) and in the end, the mat started falling apart anyway, so now we just use the seats and move them a bit further apart from each other.

I'd say definitely a worthy investment!

My friend has one of these and it is great - although it still doesn't help them to like their hair being washed!!!
