The Bumbo seats were recalled at one point so I hope this isn't one of those models.

Looks like they have belts now so when your kids falls off the counter he can fall with the seat strapped to him.

But really we have the old one and my kid never fell out. She would have had to really move to fall out of there.

If you go to the sale page, you'll see all kinds of info about these seats per the voluntary recall in big bold letters.

This already includes the piece that was added from the recall (The buckle).

I use two of them, for my kids, and both work fine. Don't leave your kids sitting somewhere high in this seat (Or anything else), and it pretty much works exactly as intended.

Not to be a tool, but you seriously let your kid sit on the counter in this?

Don't be an pirate, and these work perfectly fine (Even without the buckle).

We own one without the seatbelt and with the attachable tray and love it. It's a great light-weight way to feed your baby while traveling. Ignore the recalls. They are for the people who put their babies in one of these on top of a ladder and go take a bath. If you can't figure out that you need to watch your baby at all times in something like this, you need to ask someone for help.

No. There was a recall but it was not one where you took or gave back the item. The recall was for the installation of a belt, which, from the picture, these already have installed.

I own a bumbo and had to register on a website and they sent me the belt for free - which I had to then install.

These are good to go assuming that they do in fact have the belt.

Here's an article about the recall:

Bottomline - the recall is to design more warnings for proper use due to children falling out of bumbos on elevated surfaces and getting skull fractures.

They are, in fact, shipped with the modification kit.

i.e. If you shouldn't have had children to begin with, you really shouldn't buy this chair either.

I don't see the point in forcibly getting your kids to sit up straight before they are ready, so by the time my kids could sit up unassisted they were way too chubby to fit in a Bumbo.

As for the recall, it's a problem regarding parental common sense. Don't leave your child unattended on a counter. Don't let them ride home on the roof of your vehicle in the midst of a hurricane...come on.

Have you ever been sitting on the floor, and wished that you had something to sit in instead that was comfortable?

So does your child. Not to mention, you make it sound like you're forcing your child to do something they don't want to do. Every child that I've seen using these, seems to be pretty darn happy to be sitting upright.

Could not agree more, if you are stupid enough to leave your kid on the counter in this... not sure what to tell you - it's just natural selection, your genes will not propagate for a reason...

Use a bouncy seat, a swing, an Ergo, a tummy time mat or just hold the gremlin. 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.

I used one of these with my second child, she loved it. I loved it. it was easy to transport, and she was able to see things around her as well as work on motor development buy trying to grab things on the tray or on the floor.
Of course it says on the box or seat that your child needs to be able to hold up their head, but I guess that goes along with common sense.

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.

These are great for little ones who cannot sit up by themselves. As long as they can hold their head up. We rolled up a small blanket for extra support in the front. I think it helped our son learn to sit up on his own.

Apparently, a whole lot of people can't responsibly use these things and it's really surprising (suppose it shouldn't be, but still).

I received my Bumbo today but did not get the play tray. I noticed two tracking numbers, so is the tray shipping separately?

Yes, they are shipped separately. Never try to understand the mysteries of the shipping department.
