Bumbo Baby Seat Recall 2012

August 15, 2012 – Bumbo International is recalling 4 Million Bumbo Baby Seats.  What’s the reason? Children can wiggle free and fall out of the seats.  In October 2007, 1 million Bumbo seats were voluntarily recalled to provide additional warnings against use on raised surfaces.  For full details, go to Bumbo Baby Seat Recall 2012!

How to get a repair kit for your recalled Bumbo?

Order the free repair kit by visiting www.recall.BumboUSA.com or calling (866) 898-4999 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Thursday and between 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. CT on Friday. Do not return the Bumbo seat to retailers as they will not be able to provide the repair kit.

Parents want what is best for their children. Many babies like to sit with support. What many parents don’t know is that these type of seats, and even exerciser’s and walkers aren’t really good for a child’s development. If you want to help your baby learn to sit/walk place them on the floor and make sure that they have plenty of tummy time. Walkers do not help your baby learn to walk. In fact they may delay walking because babies don’t develop good core strength while in these contraptions that is needed for walking. By all means sit your baby in your lap with support, but keep your baby out of these types of seats as much as possible.They will be sitting up, walking and running before you know it. Then you may wish that your could leave them in one spot and they would stay there.

This should not be a recall.. You don’t put your child unattended in this seat, especially on raised surfaces like tables or chairs.. If parents are doing this and their children fall out and get hurt, they should get in trouble by the law, not the seat company. I would think that this is just basic common sense to not leave your infant up on a table or in a chair in a Bumbo Baby seat by him or herself.. I used mine for feeding and bathing my 4 children, not as a prop to assist them in sitting..
