DD is starting to want to sit up all the time. She dislikes sitting in the pram as she wants to support her own head / move it around a bit. Her neck control has really come on in the last week and she sits happily when I hold her at hip height (unsupported from the waist up)

She's 13lbs at the moment and in the 91st percentile overall.

I've looked into seats but don't want to buy something she can't make the use of just now. So far I've looked at the Baby Snug and Bumbo. I like the idea of a little activity centre on it. Any suggestions?

I had a fisher price sit me up seat for my DS. It's very colourful and supportive, and has some toys on the front & can buy with a tray also.
It was on sale for £29.99 when I purchased, don't think I'd pay the £49.99 like a lot of places are selling them for

What age did you use this from?

I used the toys r us sit me up also, I used it from 4months (as that's when we bought it ) and I am still using it now at 6 months. I take it out when I'm doing my yoga class, easy to carry and great to keep in contained and amused, but agree with previous poster I'm not sure if it's worth 49.99 but definitely find it useful.

I was not keen on the bimbo type things because I think they put baby in a very unnatural position, but at that age DS really enjoyed his jumperoo! We did have to put some big books under it so that he could put his feet flat on the floor (as they are supposed to for posture) but it worked really well and he could see all around.

Another good option is a sling, that brings them up to a good height to see what's going on all around.

Don't use bumbo seats or a version of them as they put the baby in an unnatural position. Bottom down legs up.
You want a chair that has their bottom and legs at the same level as if sat on the floor.

I loved the snug. Both mine sat in them. I can’t remember my first but the second sat in hers from about 4 months. Tiny amounts of time to start with.
I also weaned in the snug. It was easy to move into the kitchen and much easier to wash than a high chair. Once she was properly eating we went into the high chair

Thank you all. DD definitely needs something, she's unhappy if lying down etc but I'm really worried she's too young.
