Has anybody bought a Bumbo for their baby, and if so, have you found it useful? Both dh and myself think they look pretty good, and are intrigued to know if they are actually any good or just expensive gimmick.
Agree piglit, be careful. We sold ours as ds started getting out of it, and getting stuck in all manner of positions!
It's good for when they first start wanting to sit up, but beyond that I wouldn't recommend.
Sorry to be negative!
Dyzzidi, a bumbo is a tiny persons seat, looks a lot like a potty! It holds a baby who can support it's own head, in a sitting position. DS loved his until he learned to escape it at 6 months and headbutted the kitchen floor ,
but now he loves to play in it (15 months).
Easiest place to look online is somewhere like Mothercare website.
I really don't c how anyone could wean with the bumbo? I find i need baby to be laying back so the food goes in their mouth. If I tried it with baby upright they would be all over the place and so would the pureed apple!
DD2 loved it too, didnt realise that there was such a thing when I had DD1. Great for when they want to sit up but cant quite manage it. Propping them up with cushions never really worked for me. DD2 still sits in it and she is 17 months.
Thought they were great til DS tried to reach for something and fell over banging his head on the kitchen tiles. He got quite a nasty knock and I haven't used it since.
IMO, I think they are best up to about 4 or 5mths rather than the 12mths it says on the packaging.
