How good should this be? Ds2 has still got a very wobbly head, certainly couldn't sit in a bumbo like other babies I know his age?

dd2 (9.5 weeks) still has a wobbly head, dd1 could hold her head well at 8 weeks.

joey can hold his up now but he gets tired and it flops down! he's been trying since the day he popped it out to be nosey and hold it up. he's 12 weeks, don't think i'd be confident to put him in a bumbo thou.

i think it varies a lot. my 17 wk dd's head is still pretty wobbly and i've seen plenty of others much stronger than hers. mention it to your HV if you're not sure

well bumbos are recommened from 4 months so ur ds is still young, i sat my ds2 in one at exactly 4 months and his head was too floppy for it, sat him in a chair instead, they all develop at different rates
