How to Use Your Bumbo Seat Safely

I was recently contacted by the Bumbo Baby Seats to do a quick post on how to properly use your seat. If you’re not familiar with the Bumbo, it’s a chair designed to help small babies sit upright unassisted. However, there are ways to use it properly, and ways to use it that make it a safety hazard. And since I’m totally due for a reminder myself, here’s what you DONT do:

DO NOT USE YOUR BUMBO ON AN ELEVATED SURFACE! And look what we’re doing. Using it on an elevated surface. Bad. Bad, bad, bad. We thought that since she was supervised, it would be ok. Well, now that she’s super active, it’s not safe in the slightest. Even with us standing there, it would only take an instant for her to topple over onto the floor. Which is a safety hazard that can easily be prevented by simply not putting it on an elevated surface.

Here’s the correct way to use a Bumbo Baby Seat:

Oh, look how happy my kiddo is properly seated on the floor in her Bumbo? Yay! She is thrilled.

  1. Great post. Unfortunately, it came 3 months too late for us to avoid a fall! We had it on a chair at a restaurant (I know, silly us) and our daughter stretched out and fell on her head onto tile. A CT scan later (by the way, CT scans are very traumatic) she is fine. But we had to strap her to the board and wait for her to fall asleep all strapped down to do the scan. Argh!!
