  • I used it for my son when he was about 4-5months to try to help him learn to sit up, which he/she will do in her own time as I learned! GL

  • 2 months. My daughter was able to hold her head up when she came out (I swear she was born with some ox in her because she is as strong as one). She also had a neck condition called torticollis and being in the bumbo was really good on her.

  • About 5 months, however I didn't find it useful until she became and independent sitter. The Bumbo has too much space where the torso sits, and she was flopping all over the place in there. I hope you have better luck!

  • 2 months. My son is super strong. He is 5 months now and I feed him cereal in it and when he is done, he can almost pull himself out of it. And he is not big at all! He is actually very small for five months. I think it depends on the baby?
