A friend of mine recently introduced me to the world of infant support seats! I didn’t have one with my first born but really wanted one for my second born for a number of my own personal reasons. After much research between well known and popular seats such as the Bumbo & BebePOD, I went with the Prince Lionheart BebePOD Boost. And I’m going to share my experience with it thus far as my son has been using it for a little over a month now.
The Prince Lionheart BebePOD Boost comes in lemon, mint, and aqua. I decided upon getting the mint green seat because I’m all for the gender neutral color so I could use it whether my next baby was a girl or a boy and it would also be easier to gift when the time came to pass it along.
Infant support seats usually recommend using them starting at age 3 months to around 12 months of age. Why three months? It’s because a baby needs to be able to support their head completely by themselves. The Prince Lionheart BebePOD Boost recommends starting at 3 months and you can continue use up till your child is three years old!
This seat has a very simple design and features a snap-on or twist off pommel to accommodate the tray accessory and play mat which comes with the seat. I really liked that the tray came with the seat and with a awesome toy which my son rather enjoys a lot! Most other seats on the market have where you have to buy the accessories separate.
I found the seat very stable in supporting the weight of my son. It stays in place supporting the baby’s body weight helping ensure a safe & comfortable seating arrangement. The seat itself has anti-slip on the bottom which is huge for me. Sadly I was using another seat and my son leaned too far forward and ended up face planting right onto the floor which was rather upsetting to both him and me!
The bebepod is made of a soft type of plastic though it’s very durable. It’s easy to wipe clean and my son doesn’t get stuck in it at all when I take him out. The strap feature is really nice, especially since this chair can be used as a booster seat! There are straps in the seat itself to hook your child up and straps below to hook to any type of chair!
I love using our Prince Lionheart BebePOD Boost seat. Right now it’s great for him to sit up and join us while we are having dinner because he doesn’t like to be left out. It’s great during playtime when he wants to be in an upright position. I know without a doubt that once he starts eating that this chair will be perfect for all snack and meal times!
This chair isn’t too big so it’s really easy for us to take it with us when visiting family and friends. We are even planning on taking it on vacation with us in a few days so Owen can participate in all the happenings along with the rest of us.
I can hardly believe I was able to purchase this great chair for only $24.95 at the One Step Ahead website! The fact I can use this chair for multiple purposes and that my son can sit in it till he’s three years old is a major plus. This chair will save you money in the long run due to it’s versatility. I can’t vouch your child will love it but I know my little boy sure does!
