The fact that baby can sit supported with no strain is amazing!
The tray is rather annoying to put on and the straps.
Ease of use
My son had this 7 years ago and absolutely loved it so we had to get our new daughter one when she was old enough and showing signs of wanting to sit up and not be help constantly, she can sit there safe knowing I'm right there while she plays with toys and I can tidy, excellent seat would definitely recommend!
Learning to sit independently is a dynamic process that includes learning to control the head, trunk and pelvic position, how to move in and out of sitting, how to rotate and weight shift, and how to use anticipatory and protective balance reactions to stay upright.
My little one is a baby on movements...constantly and so after a while he gets bored.
Definitely really helpful for wining and it can be put either on the floor or on the table making the hole process easier.
The bumbo seat was great once my daughter could hold her head up on her own. it was a nice seat to have when weaning or just to have little one near us. We never left her alone in it and found that it was very sturdy. Never put it on a raised surface as babies move around so much and can fall out. Easy and light to take out with you if you need a little seat for your baby. Wipe down and easy to clean
These are essential to keep baby upright during first stages of weaning.
They are light weight and very portable but a bit bulky. Very durable and easy to clean but sometimes stain/ loose colouring with age. They don’t use these for very long before moving into a high chair so unless buying second hand they are expensive.
Also take notice of safety advice as babies are masterminds of escaping and keep the seat on the floor.
My little one is 4 months and this is great for him now to help him sit, it’s so easy to clean and I like that it can be used with and without the tray. The disadvantages are that I’m not sure how long it will last..we already have difficulties getting his legs out and for that reason it is a little pricey for the limited time its used.
We loved this product. My 5 year old used this and it really helped strengthen his back. I don’t think there is anything nearly as good as this on the market. It’s comfortable to sit in, it’s sturdy and lasts for years. My niece used it and she’s now 9, my nephew, then my son, my other nephew and now my youngest who is 9 months (but only used until he was 8 months). I wouldn’t recommend using it after 8 months as my baby tipped himself out. The table can be a bit of a pain to clip in at the bottom but very secure once it’s on. It’s easy to clean so when baby throws up or if you have a messy eater like mine, you just need a wipe/cloth to clean it.
I used this more with a 6month old as it was easier to feed her the spoon feeds while she sat in this product. Now that she is 9months I can no longer use it as she is determined to push on the floor to get out of it and it has very nearly tipped over with her learning to and fro. My advise is to use this item until their feet can touch the ground in it.
My nieces (10, 8 and 7yo) had Bumbos and they had no straps, with my 4yo and now with my 7 month old they've had straps, I still think they're brilliant seats and so useful but the straps seem uncomfortable for the baby. And unnecessary if the chair is used correctly and not on a counter top or unsupervised. It would be nice to still have the no straps option. I got it with the tray for my eldest but found it difficult to use so didn't bother with the tray second time round.
This is brilliant! My daughter is 4 months and trying hard to sit up in her bouncer, she can now sir in her bumbo for 10 minutes at a time and she is getting better at sitting up unaided. It's also great for feeding and easily wiped.
My favourite buy for my 6m old!! He loves his bumbo, I put him on the kitchen side on it while I make dinner and take it to other peoples houses. Perfect for a picnic at the park also as he’s not quite sitting up fully. Worth every penny.
Lets a non sitter look around and helps practice sitting
The foam can get damaged
Ease of use
I love the bumbo seat. I have used it for all four of my children. They are quite expensive but mine has lasted 11 years so i cant complain. The colour does fade over time and you have to be careful not to let baby bite it as it is just a foam. I found when my babies were around 4 months they liked to be sat up for short periods of time and look around. The bumbo seat is brilliant for this as it provides a safe seating area and helps build up the muscles needed to sit up. It also helps to keep an older baby in one place but normally by around 8months they work out how to get out. Its nice and light weight too and if you buy the tray you can use it as a feeding spot for first weaning.
This is a useful seat for babies who aren't yet sitting and is easy to transport as a travel highchair. It is easy to clean. I found the tray hard to pull off which was tricky. I found once baby was mobile he was not interested in sitting in it. So it had a small window of use.
This little chair is so good for my son as he was going Through a stage where he didn’t want to lay on the floor and when he was sat in this bumbo he loved it and didn’t want to come out and we also had a tray to go on it so he could play with all of his toys while sitting supported and safe. It’s also a great little chair to do messy play on as when the tray is attached my son is able to do sensory play E.g. painting and shaving foam. Highly recommend!
We got this as our baby hates being lay down all the time, but we didn't want to be holding him all the time either- the first time we put him in it he laughed and got very excited! It has been so useful for placing him somewhere safe while we prepare bottles or tidy up a bit; he sits happily while playing with his toys. We also have the table to attach to the bumbo, which is also very helpful for keeping toys in front of him too! We also used the seat when offering bits of food- it was slightly earlier than 6 months for medical reasons and he wasn't quite ready for a highchair, so in having a safe and comfortable place for him to sit, it made it much easier on us to be able to feeď without holding him ourselves. Practically this seat is a must-have for young children, there is no setup required and so easy to wipe down if dirty. It's also amazing for transporting around due to the small size and have even seen a 4 year old sit in it, so it's very long lasting for age too!
I have used a bumbo for all 3 of my children.
They are a great little seat. Very easy to use and clean. Handy straps to keep the baby safe.
When using the tray i have found sometimes its hard to get baby in and out and to use the tray.
my prem son is still very little for his age so struggles to fill out the seat when in however he has become extremely strong since using this and is not sitting unaided! I used it for when my son would snack between meals as I found it more convenient then strapping him into a high chair! It is so easy to clean and even portable to take round a friends or even to family that can’t provide high chairs whilst eating! They tray I find a bit flimsy and weak and the price is a bit to much I would of said more around the 15-20 mark but overall I would buy this product again!
