Being the ditzy person I am, I called up Babies R Us to find out when I could take the sling out of this thing for her bath time. She explained the sling is for newborns and any infant or toddler should go without it. As she's over 3 months, she's considered an infant. It went well. She loved actually being IN the water. She splashed around a bit. Only thing was that her head kept moving toward the faucet. Yeah for bath time!
