We bought one for our second DD (didn't have one for our first DD - I don't know if they were out yet) and it was $$ well spent. My DD used it, then my niece, then my nephew, another niece, and now it's at DH's cousin's house. We'll be getting it back for this little guy... I hope it's still standing - it was after the last niece - LOL!
Edit - This was all about the Bumbo seat... sorry for leaving out that detail. LOL!
I have no experience with the Bebepod but, a PP said that it can actually attached to a chair and used as a booster. If that's the case, then that's the product I would get.
We had a Bumbo and what a complete and total waste of money it was. First of all, our son was (and is) SKINNY and he was getting stuck in the leg holes by 9 months old. I can't imagine a normally proportioned baby comfortably getting any use out of it.
It has no versatility at all. It can only be used on the floor. It tips and flips unbelievably easily. It should not be used on any sort of elevated surface, ever. The difference between you boing there while it's on the table and not being there while it's on the table is the difference between actually watching your child hit the floor and just hearing the screams after it happens. If you don't physically have your hands on it. your baby will be able to flip it over.
You can't use it in the bathtub, it floats, and them tips over more easily.
Unless your baby has a developmental delay and your physical therapist recommends it, I can't see any redeeming quality to the Bumbo at all. Especially not for $40.
