Parental Responsibility

The BUMBO seat has been recalled.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, here is a picture of Zach in our Bumbo seat. It was passed down from big brother.

It's a soft seat that helps baby sit up, before he/she can sit up without assistance. It's great for parents with limited space (like us!) because it is compact, and allows baby to sit up to play and eat at an early age.


The reason it is being recalled is that babies are falling out of the chair, off of high surfaces, and they end up with head injuries. I can't help but wonder what parents think it is ok to put the baby in this chair and walk away?!  At what point is it absolutely ridiculous to recall products? I think this recall is just silly. Do you really need a warning label to tell you not to leave your child unattended. If he/she is squirmy, maybe they don't want to be stuck in a chair at that moment! Just my opinion... If a product is unsafe, recall it. If children are getting hurt because their parents aren't watching them, that's another story!
