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 6-7 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 quite 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.

We’ve highlighted the five baby floor seats we love the most below. Just remember that 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!

Tried and True

Lightweight, portable and really fun to say—there are so many things to love about the Bumbo. Made from flexible yet supportive material, this floor seat is completely waterproof and wipes clean in seconds. It’s designed for babies one month or older and up to 30 pounds, but be aware that if your little one is, let’s say…well-endowed in the thigh area, it may be a tight squeeze! (Looking for a more versatile seat that works on the floor or the table? Check out the Bumbo Multi Seat.)

Blends Right In

If primary colors aren’t your thing, this activity seat from Skip Hop could be your go-to. Neutral colors and a subtle pattern means this seat won’t stick out in the middle of your family room. We also love the three attached toys and the snack tray.

Space Saver

Want a floor seat but short on space? The Sit-Me-Up folds flat for easy storage or a trip to the grandparents’ house. It has a wide, stable base, a removable snack tray and a machine-washable seat pad. And the lion’s “paws” under baby’s feet squeak when kicked.

All-Around Fun

This colorful seat features a 360-degree rotating tray that’s filled with various toys to keep baby busy. It’s also multifunctional, which we love: it’s an activity floor seat, support positioner and a booster seat all rolled into one. There’s even an overhead toy bar with adorable animals attached.

Grows with Baby

Looking for a baby floor seat that will go the distance? The Grow-with-Me works as a positioner, activity seat and a booster that’s suitable for little ones up to 33 pounds. The plastic is easy to wipe clean and the fabric is all machine washable.
