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 (Dec 28, 2016)
Our child loved her Bumbo. The Bumbo allows your baby to sit up and see his/her surroundings and that made our baby very happy. Plan on definitely using it again with our next baby! It's a MUST HAVE

This is a great seat to help you child sit up before they can balance themselves alone. It’s safe but as they get mobile some try to escape which may cause it to tip over . Just aleYs watch thrm

Got this thinking it would be awesome, however, my sister who’s an OT said it isn’t good for babies development of their trunk muscles and forces a baby to sit incorrectly. Does more harm than good.

Not recommended by the AAP (american academy of pediatrics) and can actually prevent your child from sitting up on their own at the appropriate time. Dangerous fall risk if child left in it on counter

A friend gave this to me. I thought the bumbo chair was going to be useful. It is not. When my baby couldn't sit on his own, it seemed unsafe and now that he can he doesn't want to sit in it.

Hmmm, my son is always moving. I can see him potentially tipping this. Im not to sure it helped him sitting but he's sitting with little help now. I don't know if I would recommend or not recommend.

This seat has been incredibly useful on some occasions, but I don’t use it as much as I thought I would. My 6 month old will eat while seated in this when I go to my in laws. That’s all I use it for.

I like the bumbo to get my youngest off of the floor and decrease the risk of a flat spot. And both of my kids enjoyed sitting up in it. However, I find it’s time for use to be quite limited.

My husband loves the bumbo. I do not. I think my daughter learned to sit on her own just fine. He used it all the time. I prefer the high chair. My daughter was 50/50, sometimes she liked it.

My babies’ legs were a little too chunky for the bimbo seats. By the time they were able to sit up in the seat, their legs were too big to fit comfortably in the seat. Great idea , though!!

This was a great help for our daughter to work on sitting up when she wasn't quite there. We also used it with the tray for a traveling high chair (always supervised when on raised surface)

This was a hand me down but I don’t like it, neither does baby. He’s chunky but he’s 5 months old and can still fit 3 months so he’s really not very big but the middle digs in to his knees
