The bumbo seat is a double win!
Noah’s occupational and physical therapist both suggested we try out the bumbo seat since not only does it help him learn to sit, it also helps him develop the core strength needed to sit independently.
So it’s a double win!
It’s amazing to see how far he has come. When Noah first tried to sit in the bumbo chair (at four months old) he was wobbly and shaky. In fact, we could only leave him in it for a few minutes before he tried out, now he can sit in it for 20 minutes with no problem.
I’m so proud of this little boy!
Reaching and awareness; a lovable developmental combination
What’s even more fun is how aware he is of everything. This kid like to interact with everything he sees. It’s great! One of the things his occupational therapist has had him working on was getting Noah to reach out and grasp toys at his midline (in front of him) while he is sitting up. As you can see in the video, he likes to reach out and grab everything he sees!
We are having so much fun loving and playing with this little boy.
Has your child used the bumbo chair? If so what has your experience been? What other developmental tools have you used to help your child learn to sit up on his or her own?
