Bumbo baby seat and the risk of tip-overs

Posted on February 2, 2015 8:47 am under Product Liability

Sold in different colors and designs, Bumbo seats are a fun way to train your child how to sit upright safely and comfortably. Bumbo infant seat also allows babies to sit unassisted, allowing a caretaker to leave the baby momentarily. However, makers of Bumbo baby seats have been under fierce criticism after their products have been associated with tip-overs that led to injuries.

In November 2011, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warned about the dangers associated with Bumbo baby seats after learning about at least 45 incidents of tip overs that resulted in fall-related injuries. The agency said the seat may tip over and fall when the baby leans or arches, or when he or she rocks it. Furthermore, babies whose Bumbo seats are placed on top of raised surfaces are at higher risk of more severe injuries.
