  • I liked mine. I only used it for about a month while my son was trying to sit up on his own. It was helpful to let him play by himself on the floor while I did a quick chore like the dishes or wiping the counter. I also got the little tray that goes with it, and my son had a good time playing.

    I tried to use it in the tub, too, so that my son could sit up more easily but that was a BAD idea. The Bumbo floats, and it's too easily tipped over when in water. DO NOT DO IT. :)

  • I have never really wanted to use one but I know that a lot of people love them.

  • I had one for my youngest daughter. I got quite a bit of use out of it, glad I purchased it. I know like with a lot of things the baby is either going to enjoy it or not.

  • I know the bebe pod seat has better ratings. I think I will get one for when my baby gets here.

  • That's funny, b/c I was just wondering yesterday about putting it in the tub. Didn't have the guts to try, kudos to u for admitting that, Busimommi!

  • I tried the Bebe Pod and my dd didn't fit well into as she did the Bumbo. However I did like the fact that it strapped onto a chair.

  • I used one with both my kids. It was handed down to me from my friend, so I got it for free. I dont think I would pay the $40.00 I saw it for sale for though. My kids really didnt like it. They would only sit in it for about 3-5 minutes before fussing and crying. I couldnt even use it long enough to do anything. I gave it to my sister in law. I'm pregnant again, but I dont want it back. Not worth the money

  • my dd loved her's! but i would never pay full price for it! she used it for a month or 2! she would sit on the floor in it while i cooked or did dishes or to watch tv with dad! we had the tray that goes with it so i would give her some toys to play with! she could sit in that thing all day!!
