I recently purchased a Bumbo seat for Ellie. I can tell you it is now on my 'must have' parenting list, I love that it give me some time to do things around the house, cook dinner with two hands or work on design projects with her nearby.
She really loves it and is able to join in the family activities a little more than when plonked on the couch or floor. The colours are sweet too, don't you think? Do you have an item that is a parenting essential? I'd love to hear.
