Bebe pod/Bumbo seat

Hi Esther,

 

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??

 

Thanks,

Connie

Hi Connie, 

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.
