I present to you the Bumbo, baby seat extraordinaire. It arrived yesterday in the mail, our latest effort to help Davis strengthen his neck and minimize the time he spends lying on his back. The Bumbo is all the rage right now, and I must confess I resisted it at first. I mean, come on. It seemed like another gimmicky baby item that everyone managed to live without since the dawn of mankind, but, like cell phones, now no one knows how the human race survived prior to their invention. However, Davis can't sit for long periods of time unassisted and freaks out after 30 seconds on his tummy, so we needed to find a contraption that would help him with the "tilt" and thereby give his head a chance to round out. Enter the Bumbo. It is made out of a cushiony material so that it is sponge-like and flexible utilizing the child's own weight as the seat's stabilizer. It completely supports the back, front, and flanks so that a child still learning to sit won't topple in any direction. So far it is a hit, and the added bonus, which I had not anticipated, is the way it facilitates playtime between the two boys. Priceless.
