what parents are saying
we love our bumbo. Especially great if you have a child who's not too squirmy (like our first was). I definitely recommend having the tray too - it makes a great feeding seat. (Jan 24, 2013)

Cool concept, but doesn't get used nearly as much as we had hoped. Baby isn't a huge fan of the feel of it.

It's helpful when I want baby to sit up without me holding her but sometimes she seems uncomfortable due to how it positions her legs. It can be useful at times but I don't think it's a necessity.

Works perfect for feeding time, and an easy clean up! We've used this in the bath too!

This seat is so helpful for my 4 month old right now. She loves to sit up but can't without help.

We have the bumbo seat with the tray and it's a game changer.Eats and plays in there. Learned to sit up in it and held her when she couldn't.

Great to have with a new sitter, but the leg slots are smaller so chunky babies have a harder time getting legs in and out.

I thought it was okay, i dont think my baby looked very comfortable, or have good back support. Looking into the fisher price seat this time around.

I was given 2 of these and don't use either. My son hates them and won't sit longer than maybe a min. When he's in it he falls forward and can't sit upright and his legs bend funny and look awkward.

I like the idea of the bumbo seat but my first son really didn't like it much. He sat in it a couple times but never for more than 10 minutes. This can only be used from holding head up to crawling.

We used this only for a short time. Luckily, we used my best friend's and didn't have to buy. It didn't last us long since baby's thighs are a little too chunky.

Let holes not roomy enough for chunky babies!

Never understood the appeal of these. Neither of our daughters liked them and you have such a limited window to use them before it causes developmental problems. There are so many better options.

Good for feeding a supported sitter. Also useful for positioning and play. Get the tray attachment for finger foods.

Now that our daughter has better head control, she loves to sit up. This allows her to do that without needing me to hold her. Now we can sit face to face.

This is a great seat to start with when your baby is learning to sit up. This also came in handy for the first few months we started with solids. I was sad to pack it up when his thighs got too chunky

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!

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

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.
Apr 30, 2017
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.
Apr 17, 2017
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.
Jan 31, 2017
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's ok. Not a favorite in our house. Doesn't give the baby anything to do but helps with sitting up early on.
