I've seen so many kids that are barely able to hold their heads up flopped over in a Bumbo seat, drooling on themselves with their heads lolling on their shoulder for some bizarre photo op that it's just sad.
There's nothing wrong with using one once the child can sit up, but forcing the issue is a bad idea. Developmentally, they can hinder the child. There's plenty of press on the subject and parents should think more about what's age appropriate.
Again - This goes with the argument of the buckle, I was obviously not suggesting that you use the product in a irresponsible manner. If your child can support their head fully, the Bumbo seat can be great for development.
If you're dumb enough to put your child in it before they can hold their head up, on a high surface, long after they are too big, can easily tip it over, unattended, etc... Then there's a ton of toys you shouldn't be using, and I feel sorry for your child.
