bumbo question

DS is 11 weeks old and he can hold his head pretty good, but still does some "bobbing".  I see alot of people put their LO's in the bumbos already, and I was wondering how much head/neck support is good before you do this?  Do they have perfect control or average? I'm nervous (FTM :-)) suggestions please!

Re: bumbo question

  • I believe the recommend age is 3 months.  You can try but just make sure you take him out before he gets too floppy.

  • I think DS1 was around that age when he started using the Bumbo, but he always had a strong neck.  I'd just have him in it for short spurts initially, and watch him carefully and take him out right away if he started getting fussy or tired.

  • We use it for DS for very short periods of time, but he has no problem holding his head up without being floppy.

  • DD is 2 1/2 months and we have used it since 2 mos. She has good head control and only leave her in a few mins here and there while I'm sitting right there. She loves it and is able to stay in it longer and longer before getting a little wobbly! 

    Good luck! :))

  • DS does good unless he is tired then he goes to flopping. He would probably have better head control if he didn't refuse to do more than 5 minutes of tummy time.
