What kind of baby seat would you use for a 4 month old who likes to fling herself backwards!!!?? I have a Bumbo, but it scares me that she can tip over when she arches her back, and I also have one of those metal bounchy chairs, but she's getting to heavy for it. I'd like her to start sitting up more, as she needs to learn how!!

Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance!!

Do you have a tray for your Bumbo? I got one because my son did the same thing, and it helped a whole lot.

Like Dove said, though, she won't learn how to sit by being put in a sitting position, but lots of babies LIKE to be in the sitting position even if they can't yet do it themselves. What about a high chair? Or a feeding seat that straps to a regular dining chair so that you could move it to the floor?

I do not have a tray for the Bumbo, but that is a very good idea!! I just figured the more they sit, the better off they be! My mistake!!

Thanks ladys for the advice! :)

Having her propped in a seated position will not teach her how to sit. She will learn how to sit up on her own in her own time when she is developmentally ready to do so. Better to just let her have lots of tummy time and figure out the sitting thing on her own.
