Extolling the Bumbo

As a first-time mom, with two sets of first-time grandparents, we have accumulated a lot of stuff in a very short period of time. Some things have proved unnecessary, others indispensable. One of our best investments in baby gear has been the Bumbo baby seat. Dash was able to use it as early as 6 weeks old (see picture), when he could start holding up his head. We would put it right in the middle of the kitchen table so that he could "eat dinner" with us. He was much happier being at our eye level, rather than stranded on the floor. At a recent play group, I realized that not everyone knows about this fabulous baby seat. Our pediatrician told us about the Bumbo when Dash was 6 weeks old, because one side of his head was flat. The bumbo lets him sit up like a big boy and, I am happy to report, his head is no longer misshapen, which is good, because Dash is still struggling in the hair department, so it would be quite obvious. We have used it outside while gardening and in the bathroom while getting ready for the day. Dash even liked to read in his bumbo at 3 months old. We love our Bumbo and highly recommend it!
