Bumbo Warning on the back of the seat

Can I use my baby sitter as a car seat? In a word NO!! Bumbo Baby Chairs were designed ONLY to be used on the floor on a flat surface and so even though it may look like a good idea to use the chair as a carseat it really isn’t!

It would be pretty irresponsible for any parent to risk their child’s life by using anything other than an approved car safety seat to transport their young ones.

Consider if you were involved in a collision and your child was in a bumbo baby seat, even with a seat belt on, baby’s neck could be broken by the seat belt and the forward momentum could cause serious damage due to ill fitting straps. Far better to have a proper car seat with seat belts and straps designed for little ones.

Are bumbo working on a car seat?

I have had many people ask about this and so I contacted head office some weeks ago and have as yet received no reply. Shall we take that as a no then for now!?

I hope if you were considering using your Bumbo baby seat in the car that you have changed your mind. If you need a seat for the car you will find one to fit your car and your budget at Mothercare, Amazon or eBay.
