    My chiropractor says they're not good for the baby's spinal development because it holds them up before they're strong enough to do so on their own. You can check that out yourself but that's why we're not getting one.

    I wasn't aware of it causing back issues. I have one I got for DS1 and he loved it. FWIW though I didn't get one until I was tired of holding him up all the time and we used it a lot from 6-8 months. I never let him "hang" in the chair and was with him playing the entire time.

    I think a lot of the issues they had with the chair are from parents who just put the baby in there and don't watch what they are doing or putting the chair on a countertop...I wouldn't blame the chair it seems pretty safe if you are watching LO.

    Most of the time we used it he could pretty much sit up himself.  I think it depends on the baby but the weight limit is 22 lbs. The leg holes are pretty small so you might not get that much use out of it. I wouldn't buy it until you know LO might have an interest in it.  I don't think it's for everyone but my LO loved it and I plan on using it again for this one.

    Bumbo was worth it for us with my first.  We used it from 5-7 months during meal times with the tray for her to eat.  So we didn't use it until she was able to sit on her on.

    This. DD was too small for her high chair at six months. The bumbo and tray was the easiest way to do mealtimes. That was the only time we used it.
