Bumbo Floor Seat Review – Updated After Long Use with Two Kids
We’ve had our Bumbo Floor Seat for quite some time now. I bought it for my eldest daughter when she was a little baby so that’s over three years ago now. The Bumbo is one of those products that divide parents a bit — some love it and some don’t like it very much for some reason. I love it though and ours has been used daily since my eldest started trying to sit up.
It’s a great asset for when your baby is at that stage where he or she loves to sit up and can do so but sometimes still topples over when reaching for things. This was around the age of six months with both my daughters. It’s a great safe place for babies to sit and play when you need your hands to cook dinner or get some work done. You can also use it as a feeding chair if you want to feed your baby somewhere where you don’t have your highchair. It’s great in the garden!
I love the soft material that the Bumbo is made of! It’s soft but firm which makes it seem really comfortable and supportive as it hugs your baby’s body and legs. It’s quite flexible too and very easy to keep clean.
It seems like some Bumbo chairs come without a harness so make sure yours does when ordering online. It’s easier to check in store, of course. I think that the harness is essential when using the Bumbo with young babies as at the age of six months, my girls could get out of the Bumbo if the harness wasn’t on which makes it an important safety feature.
Bumbo got in touch and told me that when buying a new Bumbo Floor Seat the restraint belt is included as a standard. This has been in effect for the last 3.5-4 yrs. If you’re buying a new one, you will get a harness!
Both my girls still use the Bumbo now as a little chair/toy. They’re 3.5 years old and 14 months old and they play with it all the time so it was a really good item to buy for us. It still looks brand new too and I’ll definitely be using it with our next baby in the future.
It’s available from Amazon.co.uk and lots of other shops that sell baby products.
What’s your opinion about the Bumbo? Do you love it or hate it?
