I have been using the Bumbo floor seat for about a month. I got it when my son was only 5 months old and could not sit on his own. We are still using the Bumbo today even though he is 6 months old and fully able to sit on his own. The Bumbo has many uses and I am sure I have not discovered them all.
I originally used the Bumbo with my son to help him sit up and see the world from a different point of view. After about 5 minutes or so he would get tired and I would take him out. Over time he adjusted to being in a seated position and was able to stay in the Bumbo for longer stretches of time. Now he is 6 months old and he enjoys being in the Bumbo for any reasonable length of time. It is a comfy seat for him and the safety strap keeps him contained.
Now that my son likes sitting up, we use the Bumbo for feeding. He just started solids and I put him in the Bumbo when it is time for him to eat. It works as a great little booster seat. I sit on the kitchen floor and feed him while he sits in the Bumbo.
Another way we use the floor seat is for playing. I put a basket of toys in front of my son while he sits in the Bumbo and he pulls all the toys out and sticks them in his mouth while strapped into the seat. When he gets done with that he sucks on the seat belt of the Bumbo. I know its not intended for that but it provides great entertainment.
I also have a 1.5 yr old daughter who loves the Bumbo too. She calls it the “baby chair” and when she is jealous of her baby brother she goes and sits in it.
This floor seat is great and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of sitting assistance for their little one.
