This is one of the best baby products I've discovered. It's a "Bumbo baby seat" and although he has little to compare it to, Lachlan thinks it is the best thing ever!
He is happiest when he is sitting upright across from you so that he can see your face. Sometimes I'm able to sit down with him while he's in his bouncy chair, but quite often I need to be on the computer or in the kitchen or my studio doing something. Now he can sit in this chair and we can make googly eyes at each other. He'll be happy and I can start getting more things done!
I had never heard of them before, but I saw one in a photo of my friend's kids. I tracked it down online and it arrived yesterday. If you need a gift for someone's baby, I'd recommend it!
