Best Baby Floor Seats

Babies love to sit up and observe the world around them. But until they’re sitting up independently (which usually happens around six or seven months old), they’re going to need a little help—and that’s where a baby floor seat comes in.

Baby floor seats provide the support and assistance your baby needs for sitting up before they’re ready to do it on their own. Floor seats are a safe spot to put baby after they’re tired of whatever other form of baby entertainment you’ve got up your sleeve, like a play gym or swing, but before they’re ready to fully sit up in something like a high chair. Many feature fun add-ons like toys and sounds, and most are lightweight and portable enough to easily move around your home or even take along on a trip.

Just remember, these seats are exactly what they sound like: seats designed for the floor. Although it may be tempting to use them on a table, counter or other elevated surface, it’s not a safe option for your little one due to the risk of toppling over. Good thing there are still lots of things for baby to check out, even on the ground!

Best Baby Floor Seat

This three-in-one seat stands out from the other floor seats on our list because of one significant feature: it was developed with the guidance of physical therapists to encourage a proper upright posture and safe positioning for your baby’s developing hips. It can be used as a floor seat for sitting up, a booster (using the conversion straps) and a feeding seat with the attachable tray.

Best Affordable Baby Floor Seat

The most affordable baby floor seat on our list, the Sit-Me-Up features a wide, stable base and two linkable toys to help keep baby entertained. Bonus: this seat folds up compactly for storage and portability.

Best Looking Baby Floor Seat

The dual-option design lets this seat pull double duty as a floor seat and an activity seat with three attached toys. The neutral colors and a subtle pattern means it won’t stick out in the middle of your family room, and the seat cover is machine washable if there’s a mess.

Best Baby Floor Seat for Minimalists

Packed with six activities including a light-up piano with 20 songs and sounds, along with other sensory and tactile toys, this floor seat + play place + booster seat is a good option if you’re short on space or want to minimize the amount of baby gear you own. The toy pods slide apart to reveal a food tray and cup holder underneath and there are also straps to attach the seat to a dining chair when you’re ready to use it as a booster.

Best Portable Baby Floor Seat

Adventuring outside? (Or just sitting in your backyard?) This portable baby floor seat is specially designed for the outdoors and on the go. It features an overhead UPF 20 canopy to keep baby cool and protected from the sun and a breathable mesh back. It folds flat when not in use.
