I was wondering what your thoughts are on such a chair for an infant:
I'm thinking it would be thumbs down, but it is not too reclining with a C spine. Perhaps it's too early for a baby to be sitting if they can't do it yet on their own??

I actually don't mind the Bumbo. If the baby can hold his/her head, then the seat can help enforce a nice stacked sitting position that babies naturally want to sit in. Esther has talked about putting one of her children in a large bucket and building up towels/cushions around them to help create a good sitting posture. She learned this trick from her travels in Africa. The bumbo serves a similar purpose and I, in fact, have one for my future baby!
I hope you find this helpful.
