Oh, just great! A baby seat that allows for a skull fracture!

Re: Recall of 4 million BUMPO Baby Seats. Injuries Reported!
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Bumbo are aware of 34 incidents where babies fell out of or maneuvered out of a Bumbo seat. Two of these incidents involved reports of skull fractures. Others reported bumps, bruises and other minor injuries.

I buy laundry detergent in this huge pail-like container and there is a warning on the side with universal symbol for "no" or "don't" over an outline of a child with its head down in thebucket.

Now when did it become necessary to warn parents not to let their kid fall head first down into a bucket or pail???

Same with warning on so many plastic bags that the bag is not a toy and not to allow children to play with it. Who would think and do such?

And yet apparently there are enough braindead parents to warrant all these ridiculous wanring and cautions!

Scary isn't it?

Re: Recall of 4 million BUMPO Baby Seats. Injuries Reported!
I think the problem is the parents who think the Bumbo is a babysitter and leave a child in it for too long. Once the child is old enough, they will plant their feet and start pushing backward as if to do a backbend out of the thing. Its OK to let your child sit for a bit when they are young because it helps stregnthen the neck while providing support to the spine, BUT if they are old enough to try to push backward out of the thing, your just asking for an injury.

WITH the amount that they sold, that is a very very small percentage. I own one, and they are safe because any child that can fit in it, should be watched 24/7...

stupid parents, not interacting with their kid and watching a baby while its awake. I have one on the way, and I will be using it. If you saw how they are designed and placed a baby in one, you would understand how safe it is.

 Quoting: Bluebird


It's sad but there are parents out there who have no common sense. I've seen people shop with their toddlers standing in carts, laying on the platform underneath the cart with their hands quite near the wheels. They use no straps half the time. I don't know how many little lives I've saved by blocking a toddler from running into the street that wasn't mine. You can put warning labels all you like on a product. It doesn't help the child be safe if the parent is too ignorant to read it. I have 4 of my own and none have suffered broken bones, skull fractures, burnt anything. It's sad to watch parents throw blame somewhere besides where it belongs, such as in their own lap. Parents shouldn't have to have a near-death of their child to realize the safety of that child lies in their own hands. They should realize that at conception and act like that child only has one life and protect it as such. Accountability falls with the parent and most of them just don't want to be accountable for their own ignorance.

Re: Recall of 4 million BUMPO Baby Seats. Injuries Reported!
All valid points being made.

It's a sad commentary on parenting today. I reared 3 kids and never any injuries but then I was also accused of being overly protective.

Since parents are so lax these days, the manufacturer has to try to offset that with design but that will only go so far.

And you know if the baby is injured, the parents are then going to want to sue like anything, driving the costs of production up for us all.

That said, I shudder when I look back on some of my own parenting especially with my first one. I used a car seat so flimsy I cringe to look back on it. But that was long ago and we now are supposed to know better.

That particular seat looks more like what I would call a booster chair usually used for sitting at a table to eat.

Just chuck them in the furnance, right?

The 9 month old, aborted fetus and all, right? Can the worker swing the baby around by the feet and toss it in, or should more care be taken in placement in said furnance?

Just want to be clear on your stance here... "
