Baby Sitter

Madeleine’s a week away from her three month birthday, and so interested in the world around her, she gets really frustrated when she can’t make her body do what she wants.  Over the past few weeks she’s gotten in the habit of grabbing my thumbs while lying down and using them to help pull herself up to sitting.  She’d rather sit than lie down, and she’d infinitely prefer to “stand” than sit.  Unfortunately, her muscle strength and balance hold her back from standing, but I have found something to help her sit.

It’s called a Bumbo Seat, and it’s this non-skid, foamy, ergonomic sort of chair for babies in_the_bumbo.jpgwho are ready to sit up but can’t quite do it themselves.  She looks like Goldilocks sitting in the Big Bear’s chair, but she quite enjoys it for about 10 minutes at a time.  I have a feeling that as she grows and gets stronger, she’ll be using it more and more.  I predict it’ll be great for feedings; good thing it’s wipeable!
