Okay, so if you follow us on social, you probably know we introduced the Otteroo to Thea at 8 weeks. And we may or may not have bought it before she was even born. All I have to say, WE ARE OBSESSED.
A looooong time ago, I think even before Sydney and I were married, I had seen their Facebook Ads video and thought, “That’s cool, but is it legit?” and just kept scrolling through my newsfeed. Then, once I started to see it again when we were pregnant, I thought, “This is going to be a waste of money — but what the hell, if it sucks, it’s only $35.” I’ve wasted more money on lesser things so I clicked the ad and purchased it.
When Thea was born, I was itching to put her in it but it says you need to wait until they are 8 weeks old. So when she was exactly 8 weeks, we warmed the hot tub up and tested it out with her ... and oh my gosh ... she was so happy. At first she seemed confused. She had never experienced the hot tub before so she was taking everything in. Once she became adjusted, the most amazing part was watching her discover that she was free to move as she pleased. She was moving her arms and legs as if she was becoming reacquainted to her body again outside the womb as Sydney said her movements looked like what it felt like when she was inside. It was so exciting to watch.
Sometimes she relaxed and floated, just enjoying the warmth of the hot tub and at other times she was looking around and curious about the world around her.
At the bottom of this post is a video of her experience that really captures the essence of Thea’s time in the Otteroo. As a new mom and someone who loves the water, I was blown away.
If anyone has any questions about the Otteroo, feel free to leave them in the comments and I’ll respond as best as possible.
