Not too long ago I reviewed the Bumbo baby seat.  At the time Isaac wasn’t quite big enough for me to test it on him, so I tested it on a friend’s baby boy.  By 2 1/2 months Isaac was sitting in the Bumbo by himself – he loves it, especially since he’s able to see everyone’s faces and participate in all our activities.  In the mornings while Emma does her preschool lessons and crafts I put the Bumbo on the table and he watches everything she does.  It’s awesome!

But lately he’s started getting restless.  He still loves the Bumbo but he must be teething because he’s chewing on the side of it and wriggling his way almost out of it!  Seriously, I’m going to have to use the Bumbo tray from now on to keep him secure.  What a little rebel!  :)

I’m wondering how long, at this rate, we’ll be able to use the Bumbo!  So I’m asking  you – did you use a Bumbo seat and if so for how long? I hope it’s something that lasts a long time for us.  It’s really convenient and I love that he can sit in it unassisted.  :)

  • That is TOOO funny! We used a bebePOD with the tray, so no escaping here!

  • I love my Bebepod! I even shared my thoughts on the chair on my blog…errr well it’s going to be posting next week :)

  • I dont remember how long we used it BUT when my second child got here and my baby was almost 1 year old- he would force his way into that seat- JEALOUSY…so if you keep it around- they will sit in it :)

  • Bryson used his bumbo from about three months through almost a year, I think. At time, he was so chubby that his legs would get stuck, haha. Now, I’m using it with Bella and he still sits in it sometimes. I had to laugh at first photo, because Bella was doing the exact same thing last night!

  • We had to put it away at 6 months, once he started getting mobile he just wanted to be out on the blanket crawling around. We did have the tray, but he still managed to squirm around and we had to get him straighten up a little

  • what age did you start using the bumbo? i can’t wait, my little guy is 6 weeks today!

    • As soon as I could sit him in it propped up a bit with a blanket, lol. So about when he was able to hold his head up pretty well. He loves it! :)

      I hope your little one likes it too!

      • Well I am totally using your sitting at the dinner table idea! I love that. Dinner at our house is important….even to our 13 yr old…now I just sit him in his bouncy seat next to us, but including him at the table will be much more fun!
