Right between getting a breast ultrasound (no worries, it was just a cyst) and falling prey to a terrible cold with a fever of 102°F, I went to the baby store to shop for some toys for little Joaco. Wasn’t planning on buying anything big, when suddenly this awesome product crossed my path… The Bumbo seat displayed 16 award logos on its box; it looked simply great!… I thought it would be perfect for Joaquin as he’s started to show signs of wanting to sit upright but he hasn’t mastered the skill yet.
Got home and put the bollo on the seat. We all thought he approved. No no… Bolliti quickly started struggling to set himself free, and in a few minutes the impossible happened: He lifted himself high enough that his trunk tumbled backwards threatening to flip bollo and seat. I had to grab him by his bib to stop the fall. Needless to say, I must return Bumbo to the store since my baby is a wild soul no highly–acclaimed baby product can restrain.
This video didn’t capture the moment I just described (unfortunately). However, you can see him wrestling with the seat here and managing to get some leverage with his feet. Maybe I should keep the seat?… Clearly, it provides a good challenge to tune up Bolliti’s problem solving skills.
