I will be honest, I have the Summer Infant Soothing Baby Spa & Shower, which has a separate attachment that is a motorized jet and shower head. I have had this tub for all 3 of my children but have never used the motorized jet or shower head. With all the other things required for bath time, the extra component adds more hassle. In addition, we are constantly replacing batteries on all the other necessary/useful baby items (swing, bouncer, mobile etc) that to do that for one more item is just not worth it. All my children have always loved the water and bath time and I did not need to give them a whirlpool experience to create that love. While I do think the shower head is an awesome convenience, I just do not have the time to deal with the attachment and not to mention clean up an extra part after every bath.
For $60 the Summer Infant Lil’ Luxuries® Whirlpool, Bubbling Spa & Shower is really not worth it. Sold exclusively at Babies R Us, it has received terrible reviews from most users.
