Anyone love or hate the Bumbo seat?

Re: Bumbo Seat - Get one or skip it?

  • Everyone I talked to hated it. They said their kid only used it for a month.

    I got the Summer infant 3-stage booster seat and found that we used that a lot

    After 2 years of TTC, our daughter was born on Oct 31, 2011!

  • I had it as a hand-me-down.  DD started sitting on her own at 4m and after that didn't have much interest, but it did help when I needed to sit her somewhere and know she would be supported--she didn't really like being laid down.  If I didn't g

  • Ours was given to us and DS loved it. We used it all the time. When DS was born we lived in a small 1 bedroom apt so it was a great space saver. We used it instead of a highchair or bouncy chair. Also it was very portable so when I had a friend babysit th
  • skip!  By the time that LO is ready to sit in it they won't want too.  Some arch their backs and slip out of it and if you have a chunker their thunder thighs might not fit well and they won't be able to be buckled.

  • I have a day care center and we removed this from our infant classrooms because it is known to cause problems with the spine as well as the hips. If used for just a short time each day, it probably wouldn't be too much of an issue but as a school I fel

  • Get one used. I have a Bebe Pod (similar to the bumbo) and I don't use it all the time but it does come in handy occasionally.

  • Never had one and never missed it. If I were offered one for free I'd take it but it doesn't seem all that useful to me.

  • Wasn't a necessity for us, I think DS sat in it maybe 4 times total. I loved the bumbo like seat that has straps by Prince Lionheart...he still uses it at the dining room table at 2 years old.
  • It's cute but we didn't use it for very long. I'd say skip it.
