Greetings,

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

It is better to put the children in hot tub after 4 years.

Children can become over heated sooner than adult.

It should be always supervised by adult.

You can read the authentic websites below.

Hello, A three and half yr old is almost four and there is no real harm for hot water tub. Chemical additives if permitted by authorities would be safe for him.

Please however do tell them to restrict his time in such bath and also have a thermometer reading of bath which should be within safe llimit. It should be below 50*C always. see link : http://raisingchildren.net.au/articles/safe_water_temperature.html
