In this article, we'll break down the features of two first-rate contenders — the Bumbo Floor Seat and the Upseat Booster Floor Seat!

Join us as we explore the unique benefits of each, so you can make an informed choice and find the perfect fit for your little munchkin. Let the showdown begin! 
 
 

What Is a Floor Seat? 

A floor seat is a comfy little chair designed specifically for babies, to help support and position them when they can’t sit up on their own. Made of soft, cushiony material, the seat is placed on the floor, giving your tiny tot a secure place to rest their bottom. 

Floor seats have a wide and sturdy base, so you don't have to worry about them tipping over. The seat itself is ergonomically shaped to support your baby's back and hips, while the front panel or leg openings prevent them from sliding out. 

Using a floor seat is great during feeding or playtime. Instead of trying to prop them up with pillows or holding them in your lap, the floor seat is stable and comfortable for them to sit in while you introduce new foods. During playtime, the floor seat gives them a better view of their environment, while still encouraging interaction and building up their core muscles simultaneously! 
 

Are Floor Seats Safe? 

Floor seats are very safe, but it's important to remember that they should never replace adult supervision. Even with the physical support they provide, you should never leave your baby unattended in their seat. There’s always the chance they can tip or fall over, so it's crucial to stay close and keep an eye on them. Watch over your baby and you should have no issues where safety is concerned.

Bumbo Floor Seat

The leather-like exterior on the Bumbo Floor Seat makes it very easy to clean any spills or dirt with soap and warm water. It's also lightweight and portable, making it a breeze to move from room to room, or even take along on family outings.  

To get the most out of the seat, you can add in some of Bumbo’s accessories. The Floor Seat Tray provides a flat surface for your baby to use during mealtime, and it doubles as a tabletop for Bumbo’s Suction Toy or Playtop Safari when it’s time for play! 

Upseat Booster Floor Seat 

The Upseat Booster Floor Seat is designed to be your baby's perfect sitting companion!  

Crafted with soft and durable materials, this seat ensures a cozy and secure spot for infants aged 4 to 24 months who are learning to sit upright. Its unique shape and ergonomic design provide excellent back and leg support, promoting proper posture as your little munchkin explores life around them! 

What sets the Upseat apart is its innovative dual-strap system, which not only keeps your baby securely in place but also offers versatility for use with most adult chairs. Now your little one can join family mealtime right at the table, just like a big kid! 

Of course, we can’t overlook the detachable tray. This handy feature is included with the seat and is perfect for introducing solids to your little one. Both the tray and seat are easy to clean, making mealtime a breeze for both you and your baby! 

Seat Supremacy 

The Bumbo Floor Seat and the Upseat Booster Floor Seat are nearly identical in their features, making them both excellent options for parents in the market for a baby-friendly seat. If you’re looking for a slightly more affordable version, opt for the Bumbo. Keep in mind, however, that the Bumbo doesn’t come with the tray, which is an extra $23. However, that’s still cheaper than the price of the Upseat. On the other hand, the Upseat has the capability to attach to a normal-sized chair so your little one can join the dinner table.

Decisions, decisions! Only you will know which is the best seat for your situation, but rest assured, your child will love either one!
