    Recommendations for the best baby seat

    Can anyone recommend or share their opinions on a good baby seat??
    I have a nearly 3 month old daughter who is most happy when she is sitting upright. My son was like this too and we used a bimbo seat, but we couldn't use it for long because his thighs we too chunky for it. My daughter is the same, he thighs will be too big to fit comfortably in a bimbo but I'm not sure what else to use??

    I think sometimes with the bumbo, parents think that the thighs are too chunky but they really aren't. When my 2nd daughter was 6-10 months old, she sat in the bumbo a lot. My older daughter at that time was 27-31 months old and she would sit in the bumbo as well. And she's somewhere around in the 90th percentile. Yes her thighs would get stuck but it's ok, not harmful. The bumbo has been used even for special needs kids up to the age of 6 or so. It does take some more maneuvering but they fit. I doubt that many 3-6 month olds have the same size thighs as a 6 year old! The other alternatives offer less support so are not as safe - like some booster seats - or a bouncer but that's still very reclined...
