Bumbo Baby

I love the Bumbo - that soft molded chair for infants. It's molded so well to their little bodies that as soon as they can hold their heads up comfortably they can sit in it and participate in family life. Baby Quinn has been using hers for several weeks now - she'll be three months old in three days.

We don't leave her in it for more than 5 - 10 minutes at a time. I like putting her on the kitchen table so she's on our level and we can talk to her face to face. One of the nice things about the chair is that it leaves her hands free to play with toys. These pictures, taken yesterday, show her first attempt to actually hold a toy and bring it to her mouth. Her eyes look tired because it was 4:30 pm and the little monkey had been up since 4:30 am with only about a half hour sleep in between. A very unusual day for her sleep-wise.

She's our little Bumbo baby.

I'd have killed for one of those in the early 70's. They are so neat.

Aaawwee! So cute. Our little Charlie's legs were too chubby for him to use it too long! Quinn really looks like she is enjoying it. My but she is growing fast! Great photos!

Such a wonder how they change everyday when they are newborn.
