Customer Reviews:

  • We loved this seat.
    We got this when my son was 4 months old. It was great. They don't recommend it, but he could sit on my kitchen counter and watch me in the kitchen while I worked. (You just have to keep an eye on them of course.) We fed him in it and used it for a long time. We used it until he could push himself up and out of it. It's great - definitely worth the money. I don't know what I would have done without it....more info
  • Excellent trainer for baby
    I got this chair for my 4 month old son. He has been actively trying to sit up on his own since he was only 2 months old, and I had been window shopping a decent and safe way to nurture his need to sit. I saw this chair and I have to admit that I thought it was a little pricey, but after seeing it at the local day care I realized that this chair will outlast an entire family of kids becuase it is so durable. I got one and I take it everywhere! The material is easy to clean, super comfortable for him and he just loves to relax in it. He enjoys being able to sit in different locations of the house and just observe what's going on. Before his was pretty restricted to the play mat, crib, or swing and he was getting bored. now I put him in it wherever I go. I can do laundry, cook, or excersise and he gets to soak up all the action. He loves it!!
    UPDATE:
    I have used this product for about two weeks since I initiated the review and over that time I have observed a noticeable increase in strength and his ability to sit on his own has drastically improved. I honestly didn't expect the chair would actually improve his strength and skills, but its because of what he does in it all the time. Once he is placed in the chair, he begins to wiggly around, trying to find a way to grab toys at his side or simply get out of the chair. Because of this he is increasing his core strength and there is noticeable improvement for independent sitting. ...more info
  • Excellent baby chair
    I bought the Bumbo chair when my baby was two months old to help him keep his neck straight and to gain strength. It really helped him. At the beginning, he seemed to get quiet when seated in it but as he got older he got more comfortable. Now he is 6 mo old and he still likes to seat in it. I think it is an excellent buy. The chair seems to be very comfortable, as well. The material is very soft. I can take this chair everywhere!...more info
  • amazing baby seat
    My baby is 6 month old and is not able to sit all by herself very well but she is bored of lying or being hold all the time. I should buy the baby seat earlier so that both she and I could be free for a while earlier. Furthermore, she is able to sit quite well without support after using the seat for a couple of weeks. I love the seat, so does the baby....more info
  • No, it doesn't float!
    Okay, ha ha - so the title was meant to be misleading. So many of us have tried to use it as a bath seat - not me, as I was warned by the friend who gave it to me that it definitely does NOT float, despite its foamy feeling! But it's tempting...

    Anyhoo, I gave this thing a whirl with both of my children and, let me first say, if your kids have chubby thighs, they will have a hard time squeezing in. This thing is designed for the slightly anorexic baby.

    Also, the back support hits the baby right in the middle of the upper back, assuming your baby is of average height. And this actually feels very uncomfortable for the baby! Both of my children screamed bloody murder in it until they were taken out. Their heads flopped backwards while their torso remained rigid. Odd, but that was the case.

    I love the dear friend who gave this to me, but both my son and daughter were miserable in the thing. Your money would be much better spent on a papasan baby chair or a video monitor. Peace! ...more info
  • I liked it; my daughter didn't :-)
    I liked it; my daughter didn't :-)

    I'm giving it 4 stars because I think it's a good product, it does provides excellent support to young babies and helps them to sit up, it's also durable and cleans up easily.

    I think had I gotten my daughter into one sooner like 2 or 3 months of age instead of 4&1/2 she may have liked it better... Who knows, she's also a little tub so that may have had something to do with her inability to tolerate it for more than 3 minutes at a time :-)

    I agree with another reviewer in that if you are able to test-drive a friend's you definitely should.

    Also, be aware the tray is sold separately and it is a pain to get onto the chair.

  • Test a friends before buying if possible
    I love the concept of the bumbo however it never really worked for my daughter. She would always end up flopping over to one side in search of a toy that she dropped so I could never get her to stay in it for more than a few minutes at a time. I tried to add the tray (which is not easy to get on)thinking that would help with the problem but it didn't.

    I know friends whose kids loved the bumbo so my advice would be to borrow one from a friend first to see if it is worth buying your own. Every baby is different and this is definitely one baby product that can be really useful or just another colorful thing to collect dust and take up closet space....more info
