We cannot wait to have our third baby in January. As it comes closer it is fun to think about all of the milestones we will be going through for the third time this next year. One of those milestones is sitting up. It is something the majority of people do everyday. So it is a valuable skill for a baby to learn within it’s first year of life. Fortunately in this day and age we have products that help us teach our babies this skill. One of these products I recently came across that helps with teaching the skill of sitting up is called Hugaboo.
*I received the following product in exchange for my honest opinion.
This is the Hugaboo in blue chevron.
First of all the Hugaboo is very cute. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns. One of which is the blue chevron, which is the one we got. Along with having cute colors and patterns to choose from they are also very soft. Although my older kids are too big to use our Hugaboo as a sitting aid, they will sometimes sit in while we watch a show. This is because it is so comfortable. Most of the other infant seats I have seen are made of rubber, foam or plastic. They usually work great at helping a baby learn what muscles to use to sit up but they do not look very comfortable.
How does the Hugaboo work?
To use the Hugaboo you place your baby, a baby who can support their own head already, into the hugaboo with the fastens on the bottom undone. After your baby is securely in the Hugaboo button up as many fastens until your baby is snug but not so that the baby’s legs are loosing circulation. This is something I really like about the Hugaboo, that it allows for a growing baby or babies of different sizes. My babies are chunky, of course in the cute baby way, but this made it harder for them to use infant seats like the Bumbo. It worked great at first but eventually their chunky little thighs would not fit. With the Hugaboo this is something I don’t have to worry about anymore. I will be able to adjust how tight it is around their legs and undo a button or two as they get older.
The bottom of the Hugaboo does not just have the intention of keeping your baby comfy and snug. It also keeps your baby from sliding out of it. This is great for a house that has a lot of hardwood or for a baby who wiggles a lot. Makes it so the chance of the baby hitting their head is a lot lower.
This product is a great present idea for new babies this Christmas or for a baby shower. It is something that you will probably be the only one giving and will help ease a lot of stress in their near future.
