Do you have any friends with one they’re no longer using?

 

Also, check craigslist, ebay = you may find one. 

 

I think the recall is ridiculous – it’s the clueless parents’ fault kids were getting hurt, not the seats!

Target has them online.

To be honest though, I have never used a Bumbo with my DDs and wouldn’t get one for the baby on  the way. It just seems like an extra piece of baby stuff to sit around. We used our boppy for sitting support and never felt the need for the Bumbo.

@PrncssDva:  Check Craigslist, Ebay, friends, etc. Some people just don’t think before they do stupid crap…SMH I think those parents need to be recalled….

Oh, my kid had a bumbo when he was younger. But seriously. I always had it on the floor and I kept him close all times since he was such a wiggly baby. He loved sitting in his bumbo!!

My cousin just got something different, but pretty similar at her shower the other weekend.  I’ll try and remember the name!

Just get the off brand one with the harness.  My son HATED his bumbo, but loved the off-brand one.  It had a tray and a seatbelt and I always felt a lot more comfortable with him being buckled in anyways.

@PrncssDva:  Hah…great minds think alike! I did see that they are selling them online at Target too like @ieatunicorns:  mentioned. And they have the recall strap.

Someone bought us ours off of our registry right before the recall and we just ordered the recall kit and put it on. Looks like the ones on Target already come with the strap, so you would be all set if you ordered one off of there!
