Do you have a Bumbo? When did you first put your baby in it?

Just wondering what age you put your baby in a Bumbo seat, if you have one? I know it has to be when they can hold up their heads. I think my son would be OK but I'm just curious what ages your kids were when you first put them in them.

  • I think my baby was 3ish months old when we put her in it. You will be able to tell if it's too soon once you put your lo in it. She loved it though! It was like a whole new world to her.

  • Mine was about 3 months old.
    Just remember - use it on the floor only! No counters, no chairs, no sofas, no beds. It is to be used on the floor so if he falls out of it, he doesn't fall OFF of something too.

  • Watch it if you have a chunky monkey! I know a couple of people who had chunky babies and their poor little legs didn't fit! lol

    Other than that, I don't know. I never used one, but know some people who had them and liked them.
