All Hail the Bumbo!

If you haven't had a kid in the last few years, you may not have heard of one of the latest inventions...the Bumbo seat. It's a foam seat that supports babies in sitting up before they can on their own. Reagan about lived in her Bumbo seat once she could hold her head up enough to sit in it. Here are a few pics of Reagan in her Bumbo. (my how she's grown!)

We used to feed her in it, let her play in it, read to her, and we would take it to restaurants for her to sit in when she was still too little for the high chair. I think all of her time in the Bumbo certainly didn't hurt anything; she was sitting completely unsupported for long periods of time the week she turned four months old. I think her Bumbo time helped her develop the muscles and coordination to sit on her own very early.

And now the Bumbo has been passed on to Bailey. Bailey is starting to be able to sit in her Bumbo for short periods of time now that she is getting better with her head control.

And since Reagan has to be part of everything Bailey does, here is Reagan "helping" Bailey in her Bumbo.

You know they actually recalled these things a few months back. You could return your Bumbo to get a free sticker added to it that basically said don't use on an elevated surface because baby might arch back and flip out of it. It seems there are enough people on the planet without the sense God gave them and thought it might be a good idea to leave a child unattended in a Bumbo on a countertop. If you need to return your Bumbo to the store to get a sticker to remind yourself not to do that, you've got bigger problems than a Bumbo.

LOL! Those pictures are so cute. I loved my bumbo - too bad we discovered it on the 4th child! Of course with 3 other kids in the house, NOTHING is safe!
