Lots of people suggested getting one for my DD but I figured she could do without and would sit when she was ready.

This is my forth baby and I have never used one. I normally just wait until they sit up too. But this baby just wants to sit all the time. She has been held most of her life and her core is very strong. She can sit and stand up with me barely touching her.
I wouldn't use it all day but it might be handy at times. I'm hoping to pick one up second hand in case it doesn't workout. Looking on the bss pages I see some with and without seatbelts. Not sure which one to go for.

I had one for my first child and he was a huge baby, his legs would get stuck and he looked so uncomfy. I ended up getting rid of it. Didn't work for him at all.

I looked into one when dd was around 3 months or so. She was just like you have described your 4th. Always wanting to sit up as a little baby (and then once she had mastered sitting she then always wanted to stand and so on).
My research was helpful in making me make my final decision that for me, I would not get one for dd.
this article is one of many that explains from a therapists point of view why they aren't great for babies. http://mamaot.com/2013/07/16/beware-...by-bumbo-seat/
It is a personal choice of course- many parents use and love bumbos and their children of course develop normally. I just decide a few more months of dd being reliant on me to help her sit up wouldn't kill me and I would rather keep the bills in my pocket

I love our bumbo! My 12 month old still uses his to have snacks. I never use the seatbelt anymore but I used to use it when my son was 4 months.

My poor little monkey was too chubby for it when he was 4 months old. His 6 month old cousin fit into it fine but not our little pudding. Def try before you buy!
