    they're brilliant, I got mine 2nd hand as I personally think they are quite expensive new. I used it til Ally could sit unsupported. He just gets out now lol.

    I wanted one for ages. So I bought one off E-bay, and since i've had it. I think she's been in it about 4 times for about 10 minutes. She doesn't like it. So for me it was a waste of money. But they are a great idea, and are really good. It's just a pity my daughter doesn't like sitting in it. :dohh:

    Aww thanks :)
    By the sounds of it theyr really good to buy..but probs be better buyin one off ebay if some babys dont take to them?
    Hes got really good head control, he lifted and held his head clear off the ground when he was lying on his belly or if his head was on your shoulder at 2 days so do you think hes too young to be put in one at 2 and a half month old?

    I would not say overly used but definatly had its uses & would buy one :D x
     
  11. I have one. I sat her in it but she doesnt have enough head control for it yet. I could tell she wasnt ready. Ill wait till about 3 months to use it properly

    The bumboo was useful at times, but Kathryn didn't like it. She wouldn't stay in more then 5-10 min. Now she sits up by herself we don't use it anymore. I would've gotten one that did more (like have toys on it).

    Helena can escape from hers and she never liked sitting in it anyways. Second hand is def. the way to go!

    I think its defo worth getting him one, and if they'll selling second hand I suppose I wouldn't really be losing much by just trying :)
    I heard that they were made for improving they're posture and teaching them to sit up rite?

    We got one off ebay for £6 for Alyssa that had been used only a couple of times. She already loves when we hold her in a sitting up position, so we think she'll really enjoy it. She doesn't quite have the necessary head control yet, but maybe in a few weeks.

    I would say borrow it first and test it out before you spend the money on it;

    It seems some babies LOVE them while others HATE them!

    Yeah thats good advice actually, I just dont know anyone else that has one lol
    I don't know anyone with babies.
    I suppose if I can pick one up pretty cheap I don't mind paying and him not use it.
    Worth a try I suppose :)

    ^ You can always resell it anyway if you end up buying it second hand and he doesn't like it for the same price, no money lost :)
