Here's some very tense video from Good Morning America.

Bumbo baby seats are meant to help infants stay upright before they’re actually able to do it on their own. The trouble is, they’re not especially good at keeping the child from catapulting itself out of the chair. This has resulted in 28 injuries including 3 skull fractures, according to the CPSC.

Here’s some very tense video from Good Morning America.

The recall just involves the distribution of better warning labels, but these seats seem like they might be more trouble than their worth. If you do use one, don’t use it on a table top. Your kid could launch herself at a moment’s notice.
