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!
This is easy to use and great for when kids can hold head up. It wasn’t the best for my second child who was chubby and the seat I had didn’t have a belt and baby tried to get up. The tray was annoying and I used without
We used the bumbo floor seat from when lo was 2 months old as she could hold her head up and wanted to sit constantly. Only just stopped using it at 8 months as her thighs got too big. (Had to stop using the tray at 6.5 months). One of the best things that we bought as we used it for feeding as well
I was so excited about the bumbo however I personally think it's cheaply made and looks cheap compared to others on market. I had a bigger baby who lasted just 3 weeks in it before he was too heavy in it. My advice would be to who around there are some other lovely ones about
Not easy to get your kid in & out on your own if they have chubby thighs
Ease of use
I bought this after my son tried out a friends seat & he seemed to quite like it, however since buying it we tried him in it a number of times & he got bored pretty quickly. I find the safety clip is in the wrong place as I have to dig it out to strap him in - it almost needs to pull up higher. The tray also isn't easy to get on once they are in as you have to tip them slightly to clip it underneath. My son also has chubby thighs, but even so, I think unless your baby has skinny legs, you'll struggle getting your kid in & out of this. When I left my son out the whole seat comes with him as it's attached to his legs, I have to really stretch the foam around his legs to get him out. I am hoping he'll be more interested when he's a bit older but right now it just has one of his teddies sitting in it.
My girls used these a lot and loved sitting in them
My boys were too chunky for these and I found it pinched there legs
All in all I think if you have a chunky baby these aren't the best seat but for you less chunky babies these are amazing.
This is a great item for when baby can sit but not for long. Helped my little one to have some independence whilst playing without having to worry about him flopping over on himself. I would say as soon as your little one is able to throw his weight then stop using, my lo tried to do this and almost upturned himself, obviously I caught him as these are to be used with constant supervision. Great item overall. I had one with a tray for first snacks and weaning.
So my 4months old son has just started to use his and he loves it however as he is on the chunky side..takes after his mum in the thigh department...I don’t see him being in it for too long as even at present his wee thunder thighs are squished into the leg space!!
His one has a tray with it which is a fab idea
It’s very durable, portable and easy to store which is great! However my little chunky monkey might not be in it for too long for me to be worrying about him trying to get out of it! Good product though all in all
This seat is great. My little boy is just starting to show interest in sitting and this is great to support him. The straps are good but are sometimes tricky to do when you are trying to put the baby in and do them one handed. It’s easy to wipe down and easy to store. When he learns to move around I think he will be able to escape so won’t last long.
These chairs are so fab! We have one which has lasted or eldest child, his cousin and our youngest! Well worth the price! It's so handy to have a place for baby to sit up and see the world around them when they are in that frustrated stage when they just can't quite so it on their own. The only downside we found was that our babies tends to be on the smaller side, especially in the booty area! As a result they kept having to prop themselves on the side which didn't look very comfortable.
Great colour options available, nice and sturdy when baby is able to sit up - overpriced. Only used a handful of times - he’s legs got stuck in it too so when I tried to pick him up the seat came with him.
Harness tricky to fasten with chunky legs, tray very small.
Ease of use
Bought this when our daughter was about 3 months old and trying to sit up. Loved it for a while but by 5 months our daughter had outgrown it. Quite pricey for it to only last so long. Daughter fitted it perfectly aside from in the leg area. Babies have chunky legs and this seat is not made for that. Because of how tight it is I found it hard to use the straps.
Helps baby sit up straight, good for early weening if baby doesn’t suit high chair yet
Not for chunky legs, can’t do much else
Ease of use
The bumbo is a nice product but I don’t think I would buy it again. It’s good for helping baby sit up straight if they are the kind of baby that sits still, my little girl is a fidget so isn’t suitable for her. She can’t really do much else in it other than sit which I understand it’s just meant for sitting but found the bouncy chair a lot better for her as she’s still quite small but wants to do more. It is good for weening though as baby can sit upright and still.
Great support seat, easy to keep Baby secure in the seat
Ease of use
I used the bumbo as a first support seat, my little boy and found it really helpful to encourage him to sit unaided. The design means it is moulded so that Baby sits deep in the seat, they are secure and can’t fall out. The play tray attaches easily and securely, it is great for putting toys on or giving Baby their first foods. I think this seat is value for money.
The Bumbo Floor Seat will help your baby maintain an upright seated position before they can do it themselves. Its award-winning design has made it a classic favourite with millions of parents, who have chosen the Bumbo as their baby’s first seat.
The contoured seat is designed specifically for good posture and includes an adjustable harness with an easy-click buckle for added safety.
