I first learned about Bumbo seats in 2006, after my first daughter was born. I originally purchased the seat because she spit-up all of the time and I thought it would help her with digestion. I honestly can’t remember if the seat really helped her or not, but it was nice to have her sitting up instead of laying down and spitting up. I always worried about that.

The photos above were taken before Bumbo seat covers were available on the market. Even though our kids have outgrown their Bumbo seats, I’m so glad the seat covers are available!
We held on to our last Bumbo, the pink one, for future babies in the family. Turns out the next baby using said Bumbo is a boy. Sure, it’s not a huge deal that the Bumbo is pink but we love having the option of having him sit in a more “masculine” Bumbo seat. That being said, we now have the chocolate baby seat cover, courtesy of Keen Distribution:
The Bumbo seat covers are available in various solid colors as well as attractive patterns. As you can see from the above picture, the play tray still attaches to the seat even with the cover in place. The covers vary in price anywhere from $15-$18, depending on where you purchase. Here is a list of retailers that carry Keen products.
Do you own a Bumbo or know someone who does? We have a Bumbo Baby Seat Cover in Chocolate up for grabs (not the actual Bumbo sitter). Just leave a comment on this post if you wish to enter.
