We loved it when we first got it- so cute to see our baby practice sitting. But it is hard to put the tray on once the baby is inside. Could only use a short time because the baby legs could not fit. (Sep 24, 2014)
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.

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

I thought this would be such a useful item but unfortunately my baby's chunky legs were just not fitting there properly. he was getting agitated every time i tried using it. maybe for smaller babies?

I know this is super popular, but my daughter grew out of it so quickly. I didn't think it was worth the full retail. My daughter had strong head control pretty quickly, so this wasn't necessary!

The Bumbo is a must have for all my babies! Out of my 4 that have used it so far they have all loved it and I love having a safe place to sit them when they can't quite sit up by themselves yet.

I don’t understand the appeal of this. By the time my son could hold his head up, his thighs were too big for the seat. When I tried putting him in it, he cried. He much preferred sitting in my lap.

I bought one of these because everyone seemed to have one and raved how it helped their little one learn to sit. However, my baby hated it and learned to sit on her own she used it three times tops.

We liked this seat, but it can only be used for a very brief period of time. Our son grew out of it very quickly, and if your baby has chunky thighs it might never really work. Nice for taking pics in
