Lily with her gap
Lily lost her first tooth today at school! She was so proud of herself when she got off the school bus and she had kept it safe all day! She had to go to gymnastics straight after school so we wrapped the tooth up safely in a minty wrapper (the only thing we could find in the car!) and she went off to gymnastics.

Has anyone tried the Baby BUMBO sitter? I didnt get to use one when my kids were babies, but I know that Kate had one and loved it!! She was given it by one of our close friends that highly recommended it and had Maya in it all the time as her high chair, she placed it on the coffee table to feed her or just to support her and keep her occupied so that Kate could do a bit of house work. There was so many times that I really needed to put Kai or Lily down and didnt want to place them on the floor...this little chair would have been perfect! Even taking the Bumbo to a restaurant would save the hassle of finding a high chair. They are such a simple idea but so effective and really support the baby well. You can purchase these from "Toys R us" and any major baby stores for around $100.
Most babies begin to show signsthat they are ready to sit upindependently around five toseven months of age. Beforethis time their core muscles arenot developed to be strongenough to support the body.Until recently, typical baby"sitter' products that parentscould use included jumpers,exersaucers, bouncy seats, andswings – and, of course, astroller or sling!With the creation of the Bumbobaby seat parents have onemore choice for placing theirbabies while taking a shower,doing household chores,working at a computer, orwhatever parents need to dowith two hands.
Bumbo Baby Seat
The Bumbo baby seat is so simple that it's startling that no one invented one sooner. Shaped to conform to a baby's pelvis, the Bumbo holds the infant in an upright position with a smooth, thick foam that envelops the pelvis and bottom area, keeping the baby upright and stable. Infants must have complete head control before being strong enough for a Bumbo sitter chair, so the norm is around three to four months of age for starting to use the item.
As with any baby product that parents use as a substitute for a human holding the child, the Bumbo seat should never be used without adult supervision. The device is extremely portable, though, and can be moved from room to room or taken on road trips to be used while the parent is doing an activity that requires two hands or if the parent needs a break from holding baby.
Some Cautions to Consider when using The Baby Bumbo Sitter
Because the baby Bumbo sitter envelops the child so well, and gives the child a clear, upright position from which to sit, the device can be a bit deceptive in giving the impression of more stability than is really present. Bumbo chairs have higher-than-average product reports of injury resulting from falls – some parents will place the child in the Bumbo baby seat on a countertop, or on a kitchen or dining table.Injuries generally result from two situations: the baby is too close to the edge or the baby has more core muscle strength than the parent realises, and while stretching or shifting weight the child can tip the chair over
- Designed for infants from three months to one year, the Bumbo seat is uniquely designed according to the baby's posture. It can be used on any flat surface and promotes new opportunities for interaction between you and your child such as eye level feeding.
- Manufactured to the highest safety standards from low-density foam material, the Bumbo seat is lightweight and portable, whilst also soft and comfortable for your baby. The outer cover of the sitter is durable and easy to clean, making it safe and hygienic for your child.
- Bambo Play Tray fits securely to the front of the Bumbo, is made of wipe clean plastic, and Allows Bumbo to be transformed for play and feeding.
- The Bumbo enables babies to sit upright all by themselves! Bumbo Baby Seats are suitable for babies from as soon as they can support their own heads unaided until they can get out of the seat on their own.
