Review: Bumbo vs. Prince Lionheart bebePOD Flex Plus Review




It is so exciting watching your little one grow up. I love when they start interacting with you more. When your baby is ready to sit up but not quite strong enough, the floor seats are the best because your baby can sit up with the rest of the family (of course, once your baby can support their own head). We have reviewed two great floor seat options below.

Bumbo Floor Seats

About: A  contour floor seat made of low-density foam. Comes with a three point harness. You can also buy a tray that attaches right to the Bumbo. Recommended for babies from 3 to 9 months.
Price: $44.99 for the Bumbo and $11.99 for the tray
Ease of Use: Easy to clean, just have to wipe the surface. It is lightweight and easy to carry from room to room.
Looks: Comes in 6 bright color options.
Found At: At most baby stores and online
Quality: Great quality and lasts a long time. The seat is really soft and comfortable.
Best Use: Helping your baby sit upright.
Our Rating: 3 out of 5 stars 

Pros:
 
1. I love the contour of the seat. The first time I put my baby in the Bumbo, she sat right up and didn't have to adjust to the seat at all. It was amazing.

2. The seat is really soft. It is really comfortable and my baby can stay in it for a long time.


Cons:

1. The three point harness is positioned in an awkward position and makes it really use.

2. After long term use, the color of the seat starts to fade.

3. If your baby has thicker thighs, the leg opening can be a little tight when getting your baby in.

4. I have found the Bumbo rips very easily in the middle peice. 
 
 
Prince Lionheart bebPOD Flex Plus

About: Soft, lightweight floor seat that comes with an adjustable tray, placemat and toy that attaches to the tray. Comes with a strap to secure your baby in the seat and to also secure the seat to a chair.  For babies starting at 3 months.
Price: $60.00
Ease of Use: Easy to use and easy to clean. It took a little bit to get used to changing out the tray, but once I got the hang of it was easy to switch out.  
Looks: C.omes in four colors and the super cute tray placemat comes in a fruit print in the same color as the seat.
Found At: At most baby stores and online
Quality: Great quality and made of non-toxic material.
Best Use: Helping your baby sit upright.
Our Rating: 4 out of 5 stars  


Pros:
 
1. The seat is really supportive because the back of the seat comes up high.  
 
2. The leg slots are wider and easy to get your baby in and out.
 
3. I love that the seat is non-toxic!


Cons:

1. I love that the toy attaches, although once my baby was bigger the toy doesn't stay in the slots.

2. When the tray is not attached, there is a white piece that attaches to the chair. I had a hard time keeping this part on the seat.

3. The decorative placemat fruit comes off when you wash it.
