    I don't, but DD had that situation when I first bought one for her, and I used to open up the bumbo leg holes, and then kind of squidge her legs in! Buuut over time they slimmed down, and now (at 2.5) she - for some strange reason - loves sitting in it, and has no problems at all! So, depending on the fit, it may get easier over time!

    Otherwise hope someone else can be more useful...

    What is the problem with the spinal develpment? I ask because I was thinking about getting one. We use them with children who have physical disabilities sometimes as they can help with posture, so I assumed they would be good for bubs too but maybe I'm wrong

    Sorry can't help with the chair for big thighs but DD's physio says it's great for helping them learn to sit, just as long as they aren't in there for extended periods (like everything really).

    bumbo chairs are flexible so pretty easy to squish their big thighs in, you should go to the shop & try one. My DS had really chunky thighs & he fitted in easy

    My bubba has some chunky thighs but as pp said, the bumbo leg holes can be easily stretched open to fit your bubba in. I started putting my son in the bumbo at 3 months old but only for very short periods at a time and he was sitting by himself at 4.5 months!!!!! He's 6.5 months now!

    My chunky monkey grew out of the bamboo at 5 months because of the thighs.
    Chiro said not to have them in it for too long that's all.
    Someone told me there is a phil and teds one that is bigger but I can't find it when I have looked in baby shops
