This might be the best purchase I've ever made! After at least 10 moms in my moms group recommended this, I decided to give it a try. It made my life with an infant so much easier. He sat in it in the bathroom while I took a shower, in the kitchen while I did dishes, etc etc. It was the only way I got anything done when my baby was a little guy. I purchased it when he was 3 months old and it was so perfect for helping him to sit up and play independently when he couldn't do so on his own yet. The only down side is that the product is not long-lasting... as soon as your baby can sit up on their own well, they're not going to like being sat up in this chair. It also became tough to lift him out when he got to be a bit bigger with chunkier thighs. But the sanity it provided for a few short months was well worth it!
