Is there other baby chair options other than the Bumbo? Maybe something a little higher or that you can put on another chair? I don't want a high chair or anything like that. My LO is really trying to sit and likes to be held/supported in that position. The bumbo seems like a good option, but it sits on the floor. Any other options? Is the Bumbo really worth it?<br><br>
Thanks,<br>

If you have a counter, you could get one of those chairs that hooks underneath the counter. My DS loved his AND it meant I could cook or do dishes while he hung out with me. I believe The Right Start and Babies R Us have them. HTH <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I personally really enjoyed our bumbo chair. It has a super wide base and we never left our daughter alone, but I put her on the kitchen counter while I was cooking (away from the stove obviously) or doing the dishes. Unless your child is actually sitting by himself you can't leave them in any other kind of chair or they will slump. At least no chairs that I know of. So in my opinion, yes the bumbo is worth it, but not to leave your child in for extensive periods of time. We also had the tray and we would put toys on it for her to throw off, loads of fun for an infant!

I dont think bumbos are a good idea. If a child can not sit up on their own - they shouldnt be placed in that position and the bumbo certainly locks them in that position. That just seems common sense to me - but I know lots of people like their bumbos...they are certainly not for us!<br><br>
If you child likes to be upright seeing the world around her ....there is no better seat than that of them in a sling seeing the world around them through and with you. Mei tais are fantastic for older children and are very versatile. Unless you are that bad a cook you often catch your back on fire - you can even cook with it on!

We had a vibrating bouncy chair that ds loved. He was upright, but reclined and would watch the world from there.<br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FFisher%25252dPrice-Soothe-%252527n-Play-Bouncer%2Fdp%2FB00106CNXK%2Fref%3Dpd_bbs_7%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbaby-products%26qid%3D1215186362%26sr%3D8-7" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Fisher%252dPri...5186362&sr=8-7</a><br>

We stuck ds is someone else's bumbo and he was way to chubby for it, even when he was really young, his thighs barely fit.
