what parents are saying
Kids outgrew it fast. Special Needs daughter was able to use it to sit up for a short period of time. Not recommended by physical therapists though. Easy to clean. Harness seems pointless, hard to use (May 23, 2017)

I did love this held my lo great and loved the tray. But I could do without the straps. I feel as he got bigger the connecting part of the straps hurt and got in the way

Dr said not to use this to not mess up his posture

LOVE the bumbo -this was very helpful when my son was learning to sit up! It's lightweight and so easy to tote around the house! A must have!

Not aa comfy as others. Have heard mixed reviews.

Great product once they can hold their head up. They can sit there while you get stuff done. Use the tray to hold toys for an added attention span!

I actually have two Bumbos, one for my house and one for Grandma's house. They work wonderfully for helping your little one sit up and interact. Only downside is chunky thighs won't fit!

Great seat - short term use - we only used for a few minutes at a time for a couple months - glad I just borrowed from friends and did t purchase

Bought a Bumbo, but don't end up using it much yet. Even at 5 months, my little one leans forward a ton in this seat - so much that I'm nervous to put him in it! Hoping he will enjoy it more soon.

My son loved the bumbo seat. We used it to feed him for first few months. We also have the tray, which was nice to place toys for him to reach.

We have two that we were given and he didn't really care for them. By the time I felt he was safe to be in it, he was almost too big for it.

I can't say I love it or regret only because our twins, were on the chunkier side and did not sit comfortably in it. We ended up returning it and later bought Ikea High Chairs.

I love this for sitting baby in for feeding and playing. The attachable tray helps with both of these as well.
It also helps build baby's strength before they're sitting on their own.

I love this as a first seat for babies. Baby stays happy sitting upright.

We haven't had a chance to use it yet as I have a newborn. But this is super adorable ! I can't wait till she can use it in a couple of months.

One of our most used baby products. It has been very well loved and help up well.

I loved the bumbo & so did my babe! We actually bought the tray to & ended up using it as her "high chair" until she was 6 months.

My son hates sitting in this. He has chubby legs that barely fit in the leg holes. Now that he is 6 months old, the angle of the seat causes his legs and diaper to press into his stomach.

Great for when she is eating solids!

Helped my son learn to sit up at 5 months

Not for chunky babies. Neither of my littles could every really use this since they had chunky thighs - better products similar.

The bumbo seat is a lifesaver! It is so helpful when baby starts eating. I love how the tray is attached as well!
Feb 26, 2017
We used this when my girls were old enough to start sitting up and I would carry it around everywhere and use it.
Feb 23, 2017
I love the bumbo seat! It is so convenient and baby can sit comfortably any where in the house.
Feb 18, 2017
My little guy is only three months old and in the 16th percentile for weight and his legs are already snug in this. He loves sitting up in it though!!
Feb 18, 2017
Even my older children loved this seat. Soft, comfortable for baby, portable.
Feb 10, 2017
Great for babies who can support their head, but still need help sitting up on their own.
Feb 08, 2017
My daughter almost never used hers as by the time she was ready for it, the fit seemed poor.
Feb 08, 2017
I think everyone should have one of these! It helps start the process of sitting up for when they are just working on it.

I love my bumbo. Its nice for when the baby is first starting to sit up, and eat baby food. I dislike that they tip over easily.
Jan 27, 2017
Not only is this seat cute, it is very comfy. I love how it helps with LO posture. Every mama needs one of these!

It since to have for outdoors but its use is short-lived

It's ok. Not a favorite in our house. Doesn't give the baby anything to do but helps with sitting up early on.
Jan 21, 2017
My kids enjoyed it. Easy to wipe. The recall to add buckles were annoying. So buy the new one!
Jan 14, 2017
I thought this was going to be a must have, but it was not. My LO used for maybe a few weeks, then we didn't touch it again. If your baby has bigger legs, they may not fit in it!
Jan 10, 2017
Love our Bumbo and so does our LO. Got the tray to use for feedings before we needed a high chair. Can be a little tight for our babies chunky thighs though.

My baby hasn't quite started using this item yet; however, she loves to be propped up to see whats going on so I foresee this being an item she likes.
Jan 02, 2017
Neither of our kiddos have taken a liking to this. It sort of splits baby's legs awkwardly and it's not comfortable I don't think.

I am surprised to see so many negative reviews. We love our bumbo seat! Make sure you get the tray. My five month old loves to sit and play. When he starts to whine, I just switch the toys on the tray

Best invention ever for a sitter in training.
Dec 27, 2016
Great seats for babies when they are learning to sit. My daughter wanted to be able to see everything that was going on, this made it possible fir her to sit up and look around
Dec 15, 2016
Had one with my son and will be using again! Love them!

As long as you use it correctly it is s great help that doubles as a baby bath. I loan mine out when I'm not using it and all my friends love it too. However, meant for lean legs not chucky ones.

Love this product! Great for back muscles and helping them learn how to hold their heads up
Dec 03, 2016
Didn't seem to "improve baby's back muscles" to help her sit up on her own like it claims. Would rather her hold her in my lap.
Dec 02, 2016
I love my original bumbo way more than the new one. My baby seems way more comfortable in this one. This is a must have for me!
