This revolutionary infant chair is a snug and cozy seat, designed to fit a baby’s posture. As soon as babies have head control, the Bumbo Seat allows them to sit upright on their own. The seat helps babies develop the trunk control they need to sit up on their own. It is lightweight and easily portable because it is made from a low-density foam material. The outer skin of the seat is a material that is durable, easy to clean and is available in five colors.
Why I Like It
My daughter hated being on her back. The Bumbo Seat allowed her to sit upright and look around while I could go about my business around the house. I purchased this seat when she was 2 months old and had some head control. I was a slightly worried that she was too little to get much use out of it, but amazingly enough it actually helped her hold her head up higher. Each day I could tell that her head control was improving because of the seat. Eventually she started to put her hands on the middle of the seat and would help herself sit up straighter.
The seat is small enough and light enough to transport to the beach or play dates. I also purchased the play tray with the seat which allowed me to place toys in front of my daughter which would keep her entertained for awhile.
There was a recall on this product in 2007 because parents were using the seat on elevated surfaces and their babies would squirm out of the seat and fall. Therefore, do not use this seat on elevated surfaces to avoid injury.
