I don't know, but I think a bit of common sense would have gone a long way in those instances where injuries were reported. We had a Bumbo for BB and it was perfect when he wasn't able to sit up on his own but we NEVER placed it on a counter. We only used it on the floor. We also used it for a short time as a booster in restaurants but only in booths, with him on the inside and one hand on him.

I know the instructions said that it could be used on counters but that just didn't seem safe to me so I didn't use it that way. I definitely feel for those who had bad experiences with it but parents have to take some responsibility for not having considered what I think was an obvious "what if...".

Maybe I'm not being sympathetic enough but that's how I sees it.

I didn't get one because my chiropractor said they were awful for babies developing spines.

Is it bad of me to have thought when I posted this (here and in the November 2006 community) that at least some people can get their money back rather than having it collect dust now that their kids are old enough to be done with it?

Those seats always seemed weird to me. If a baby isn't ready to sit up yet, why get a device that's supposed to make them sit up?? Just my thoughts.

I can't believe the original instructions said it could be used on counters!!? That sounds so dangerous! JN

My son was able to monkey out of his once he became more mobile, so the recall doesn't come as a surprise.

Hi! I found you ( through [ profile] november2006. The community seems to be fading out, but I'd like to keep in touch with other November mommies. Do you mind if I add you?

I went and read the first page of your journal. I was wondering if you read that entry on november2006 at all before you asked to friend me? I'm a Christian who often posts those "stupid" pray for so-n-so posts. I'm also a major breastfeeding advocate that you'd probably end up wanting to "kick in the uterus."

So, thanks for asking... but I'm gonna have to say no.

I did read your comment in the aforementioned entry, as well as a few posts here in your journal.

The "stupid" prayer bits were directed at the folks who send over prayers for every little thing. I realize that I didn't mention that, and it's hard to interpret meaning and intent through simple text - much less read my mind! - but, there you go. You don't seem the type to flood your journal and contacts list with everything that comes your way (up to and including things that were debunked years and years ago).

As for the breastfeeding post, that was directed at people that can't seem to stop themselves from - not helping others - but criticizing and coming across as holier than thou.

I just wanted to clear up those two points.

Anyhow, thanks for the response, and take care. :)
