  • You can start at i think 3 or 4 months. Google it or look on the walmart website. Its a neat seat. My DD loves it.

  • you need a bumbo. just not for awhile! they need about 80% neck control. My kids were 4 mos and 4.5 months. You'll find a MILLION uses for it. It's better than anything you'll find for spoon feeding cereal as it's so fast and easy to wipe clean, unlike a highchair!

  • You may want to invest in a used one because my dd only used it for like a week and then figured out how to wiggle out. I don't think she liked being constrained.

  • about 3 months. they need to hold their head up but not be able to sit up DD loves it. She's 10 months and I use it at my moms house to feed her (don't worry , I don' tleave her alone in it, so don't give me crap)...I think they're a great investment....
