Keep in mind that kids should always be accompanied by an adult when they are near water. Babies can handle hot tub soaking at a lower temperature with their parents, but their time in the warm water should probably be kept to a minimum at first. With that being said, the hot tub is absolutely a safe place for kids to have fun. Children love splashing around, and they really enjoy the waterfall and light features different hot tub models offer. Hot tubs are a great place for relaxing, unplugged family time.
