Nice idea but absolutely useless
Fails in its most basic function. It has one job – to stick to the bath and prevent water escaping. It fails at this. Doesn't matter what I do or how carefully I follow the instructions, the suction cups WILL NOT stick to the bottom of my tub. It is incredibly easy to knock it and break the seal around the edges. Babies generally kick about and splash in the bath, so trying to not knock it is impossible. Nice idea, but I'm really sore that I wasted $50 on this product.

Don't waste your money
I honestly wish I had listened to the majority of reviews and not purchased this. Absolute waste of money. I have tried several times to get it to stay up but it collapses when I fill the bath. The idea behind it is great but would be even better if it actually worked.
We purchased it and it never worked!!! Fortunately, the seller accepted the return. Simply it doesn't work. We tried it with all care, even washing the bathtub with alcohol (!) to avoid any grease. We tried also in another bathtub... it was a totally waste of time! Absolutely not recommended!
This product is terrible! Firstly, the suction caps don't stick properly and secondly, it can't hold up against much water. The dam collapses before you even fill to the 'max' line. I think it needs more suction cups (and better quality ones) in order to hold up properly. This product is useless, don't waste your money.
Should be written on the box!
Just called the company to ask why the product wouldn't work. Lady asked if my bath had a non slip surface in the form of bubbles, it does. That is why it doesn't work. Would have been helpful if this was noted on the packaging so I wouldn't have wasted my time!
What a let down!
Was so let down after trying 4 times to get the BabyDam to work to no avail! Thought it was me not setting it up correctly. My husband tried on more than one occasion and just got worked up and frustrated. Never people to give up, especially after pay $60, we took to our neighbour to try in a different bath, but alas, still no luck!
Great idea, just a pitty it doesn't actually work!
Absolutely agree with all the bad feedbacks from this site.This product is a good idea but doesn't work and the water leaks out.I bought it for $30 (second hand) last week and finally understand why the seller wants to sell it though in new condition.Not worth spend money on this product.
Expensive,does not work.
Does not work
Tried to get the Baby Dam to work more than 3 times. Twice ended up leaping into the bath to rescue my baby as all the water vanished from beneath her. The suction cups did not contact with my bath sides at all and the hard blue plastic surrounds prevent this contact from occurring. Unfortunately, when I approached the company they were highly sceptical of my claim that it would not work and requested photos etc before they would consider a refund. Baby Dam should admit that there is a significant design fault with this product and that it ma...y only suit a limited number of baths as their company seems to be blaming my bath for the problems. My bath is a very standard Australian Bathtub that other 'suction style' products such as shower mats etc stick to. I resent the way I was spoken to by the Baby Dam representatives and felt that at least an apology might have gone a long way. Instead I am left irate that not only have I wasted time, money and caused my baby girl some distress but that my very real complaint and problems are being ignored by a company who says that: "We've sold thousands of these and never had this complaint." Well, you have it now! The concept of the prodcut was great which is why I bought it. The design is terrible and does not work.
total disaster - waste of money
do not buy this product - it is expensive and a complete waste of time.
the dam was incredibly difficult to attach, was already leaking when the bath started, and then it popped out leaving my baby sitting high and dry: he screamed in terror from the noise and cold, it was just horrible.
give this a big miss! if you are still keen to save water, try something less stressful
great idea BUT...
absolutely terrible in use, a complete and utter disaster. leaked in my bath, so I got two friends to try it - leaked for them too - so for a product that costs this much to leak in 3 baths shows just how "inflexible" the fitting is.
always leaked suction cups never sucked on hard enough to stop it moving and this was well below the max mark over all total waste of money and it doesn't really save water when it keeps sliding down the bath and you have to keep topping the bath up to keep bub warm and there's more wait for it to collapse totally unexpectedly and you have a baby in your arms getting cold fast as your scrambling to grab a towel ok enough of my rant as you can all see im happy with it
expensive .bad prouct .bad service bad everythig
Broken within 5 months of purchase & not even used for the whole time. Very disappointing after sales service & told there are no spare parts so the broken suction cup means we now have an expensive & useless piece of plastic. Overall not worth the cost
No spare parts available, expensive, poor after sales service
