I don't see the point of forcing babies into a position they can't sustain.
Their bodies are not ready. What's the rush.

I'm not a huge fan. As a physio I'd rather my kids develop the hip and trunk stability to sit independently rather than be propped up. But as with most things for kids I think moderation is the key. In it for a couple of short sessions per day would likely be fine. I borrowed one from a friend to check it out.. Turned out I had one of those bubs whose legs were a little too chunky lol!

I bought one for my DS when he was about 4 months old, but I wish I hadn't, mostly cause even at something like 75th percentile for weight at the time, his thighs were too big to comfortably fit into it. I couldn't lift him out of it at all, if I picked him up the whole seat came too! Plus he didn't seem too thrilled with it anyway. We ended up using it for a total of about 15 mins over a few days, and since then it's been gathering dust in the garage. I tried to sell it on, but got no takers.

My DD loved hers, it was one of the few things that made her happy when she was little 😆

Thanks for all your replies. I have never used a bumbo seat with any of my other children. I don't even think they were around with my first two. My baby always wants to sit or stand up. Thats why I have thought about buying the bumbo seat. Not sure if her legs would fit though.

I had one for DD and she absolutely loved it. It was a lifesaver at times, when you need to pop them somewhere quickly & they're in that stage of wanting to see everything that's going on & feel involved. My DD hated being on her tummy and like a PP said, bum shuffled instead of crawling for a long time. I don't feel it impeded her development at all All kids are different though. I sold mine to a friend & her bub didn't like it at all, he was an early crawler & didn't like being restrained!
Oh I also never used the tray or seatbelt

I had one given to me which I never used as Ds didn't fit. I'm not going to bother with Ds2, I've given it away already. It was probably an old design though.

I had one for DS and found it very useful for picnics - both when he was still learning to sit upright, and then when he was mobile it kept him in one spot 😊. V handy for feeding. DS was skinny so we got a lot of use out of it before he was too big.
We didn't use it a lot during the day because I wanted DS to develop strength naturally and I know another mum that used hers too much and her baby became a 'sitter' and never actually crawled (just went straight to walking at 11 months).
That said, I'll use it again with the next one as it did come in handy.
