ive seen alot of posts about it so what exactly is it??


Deb - January 25

It is a soft baby seat that helps the baby learn to sit upright. You can put your baby in it, and they can't get out (at least until they get quite a bit older). They are recommended for babies who can hold their head - about 4 months old. I love mine! Right now I am using it instead of a high chair. I just plunk it on the kitchen table to feed her. They are also very portable. We take ours to restaurants and sit her in it instead of a high chair. They are fairly expensive but you can get them second hand or on ebay. If you want to see one, go to w w w. bumboshop.com

My son loved that seat but wasn't in it very long. He would bend over backwards & try to throw himself out! lol

Deirda. i posted a similar question about a week ago. I knew what it was but couldn't remember the name :o) I went out and bought one after these loverly ladies told me what it was called and they are FANTASTIC!! I was putt off by the price at first but they are SOOOOOO worth it. I just cut back on my fortnightly shopping and saved enough. DD loves it too so i highly recommend them :o)

my lo loves hers too, she is 4 months and she has used it since she wwas almost 3 months. As long as she can hold her head up it should be ok. Deb that is a great idea, I never thought of taking mine with us to a restaurant

I got mine at Burlington Coat Factory for $35, if that helps :o)

They are great UNLESS you have a tall baby. Mason was 97th percentile for height and he tipped over too much in the Bumbo and hated it. I think if he were nto so tall it would have been different.

ohhhh I forgot to mention, my lo will poop 7 out of 10 times when she is in her bumbo..lol Tell me if you all notice the same with yours.

Emberbaby...Ha! Mine always used their exersaucer for pooping. So funny!


EMBERBABY - January 26

sahmof3, isn't that funny? I guess they found themselves a relaxing spot lol.

Krnnj-- my little girl does the same thing! She like throws her head back and arches her back to stand up almost. She's only 4 months, too! I have to really watch her in it.

Im SOO excited my bumbo is on its way!! yay!!!

Since you son is a little young, you may need to work up his time in it. He will be using muscles he doesn't normally use, so maybe just sit him in it five minutes or so the first few days, then increase his time in it. Max loved sitting up and seeing the world from a new angle, but he would act like his core muscles were really tired the rest of the day in the beginning. He would be a little floppy afterwards. But now his trunk muscles are really strong from all the bumbo workouts!
