Anyone with babies and young children know how hard it is to get housework and jobs done whilst keeping your little tots safe and happy, It would have been great to have a Bumbo Seat when my boys were little.
I always used to put my babies in a high chair as soon as they were at the right age, freeing my arms up to run around cleaning up, preparing a meal or simply feeding my son’s their baby food.Even though a high chair was a far better and safer way of keeping my children in one place and not on the floor to potentially, crawl or roll into an unsafe place. It was not always ideal because they looked so uncomfortable.
Children love to play the game “I am going to throw my toys from the high chair on to the floor game” every parent knows the game right! It seems the more we pick up the toys and return them to the high chair tray, the more they throw them back again (oh the joys of being a baby). Sometimes I would collect the toys mixed with food up and feel like I was in the middle of a workout. I would look back at their adorable little faces and watched my children cunningly plotting their next move, I am sure our babies are far cleverer than we give them credit for.
Bumbo Seats Perfect Appearance
Introducing the Bumbo seat, now as I mentioned above the when my children were younger seats like this did not exist, well not to my knowledge anyway. I look after my nephew Gabriel quite often whilst my sister works and up until recently, he has always been in my arms. Now he is a little more playful and loves his independence I loved this baby seat because it allows me to put him down for a while.
The Bumbo seat is designed for children who can support their own heads, but cannot sit up by themselves Just yet. The baby seat supports the baby’s posture allowing them to interact with their surroundings.
The baby seat, which we tested, was the colour blue. The seat came complete with a play tray, although that is optional of course. This Seat has a three-point harness, which is very reassuring. Gabriel looked quite secure and was not slipping downwards. The play tray itself is made from a safe, shatter resistant with quality plastic for ultimate hygiene.
We received a Bumbo seat cover, which keeps the product clean whilst not in use. There are also some funky designs to choose from, which helps the seat blend in with your home decor. The cover made from breathable and machine washable fabric for comfort and fast cleaning.
It’s a great way to help mummies and daddies leave their children in the same room of course without having to hold your child constantly, leaving you a few extra minutes to get other things done. The baby seat encourages your child to sit up with the correct posture, allowing them to play with their toys at the same time. Feeding your child is also a breeze, Gabriel actually seems to enjoy sitting in the chair whilst he devours his food. Another great thing about the baby seat itself is that it actually can be transported anywhere and with ease, something I can certainly say I was unable to do with a high chair.
The Bumbo Seat in my opinion should be on all parents’ essential baby items list, although it is only recommended for babies who can support their own heads and up to 12 months. Although this greatly depends on the size of your child and my little Nephew Gabriel is a big boy for his age.
