  • About 3/4 months old. My daughter liked it..not loved it but she liked it, lol.
    I think she felt constricted in it or something...she needs wide open spaces, LOL.

  • My DS was a chub chub so he never really fit comfortably. He hated it and cried terribly. But please don't use it on an elevated surface like a table or counter. They recalled them right after I bought mine in 2007 and added a safety label because some children were able to wiggle out and tip & fall.

  • I think I started between 3-4 months. It just all depends on your baby's development. Maybe it was more around 2 1/2 to 3 months now that I think about it. Because my son was sitting up on his own at 4 months.

  • Mine might have been a little younger, but my babies were big too and were sitting up and holding their heads up well early. I used mine mostly in the bathroom though to set her in while I was going or doing my hair etc. She never liked the little tray that just sits on. I think they may have made it more sturdy now though.

  • 4 months with my first and 2 1/2 with my second. My second always wants to be sitting up so it is great!! He loves it.

  • when my son was able to keep his head up on his own, he's a preemie so we had to wait for him to try to get the consept of sitting but he was really small at 3 months he looked like a newborn. He was 4 months premature. We probably got him to sit in a bumbo when he was 7 months gestational and 5 months adjusted. It really helped him! Def recommend it!
