12 Best Baby Floor Seats That’ll Safely Let Your Little One Sit Up From Tummy Time

Best Baby Floor Seat

Is there anything better than seeing your bb’s chubby little thighs squished into a tiny chair? We think not. There’s also nothing better than getting a few minutes hands-free to do all of the other fun mama stuff. (Laundry? Food prep? A pee break? You get it.) Enter the baby floor seat, a sit-me-up alternative for little ones who need a change from lying down.

As a side note: While those snug baby booster seats can certainly come in handy, be wary of relying on them too much, says Dr. Whitney Casares, author of The New Baby Blueprint: Preparing to Care for You and Your Little One and founder of modernmommydoc.com. She notes that they can start to restrict physical movement if used for extended periods of time and may be a safety risk. If you do choose to use an infant floor seat, she adds, make sure yours has a harness and never place it on an elevated surface like a chair, counter or tabletop. “Your child learns best when they’re interacting with you and free to move naturally,” suggests Dr. Casares, so while bb’s in her tiny throne, pop down on the floor for a quick storytime or play session, and don’t forget to fit in some good ol’ tummy time, too. After all, a change of scenery is good for everyone.

Wondering which one to get? From Fisher-Price to Hugaboo, seats with trays and seats with toys, here are the 12 best baby seats to choose from for those moments between play when you want to encourage sitting up.

SkipHop Silver Lining Cloud Baby Chair

This stylish little seat has a wide base supported by four legs and a rotating ring that alternates between a handy snack tray or three engaging toys. You’ll love that this comfy chair keeps bb safely contained—and entertained at the same time.

Bumbo Floor Seat

When your tiny one is tired of tummy time, the contoured Bumbo seat helps them get a better look at the world. A built-in three-point harness keeps them safe and secure.

Hugaboo Baby Floor Seat Snugglebuns

There’s a small window when Baby is learning to sit up but still topples over quite a bit. The Hugaboo is perfect for that exact point in time (and well beyond). The soft, supportive pillow envelops your kiddo but still lets them have a bit more freedom to move around, and it makes a great cushion for tummy time, too.

Summer 3-Stage Deluxe SuperSeat, Wild Safari

We love a deal, and it definitely feels like you’re getting one with the Summer Infant 3-in-1 Deluxe SuperSeat. Use it from babyhood to toddlerhood, as the chair transforms from a playzone to a supportive activity chair to a toddler booster seat. With a rotating tray full of toys and a 3-point harness, this seat checks all the boxes.

$50 AT AMAZON



Fisher Price Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat

This cute chair offers two sitting positions for infants ages 4-6 months (more reclined) and 6 months and up (a little straighter), and both help your little one stay engaged with their surroundings. “I like to put [the seat] in the kitchen while I’m cooking or washing dishes so she can be a part of the action,” says Darcy on Amazon.

$40 AT AMAZON

Crate and Kids Busy Baby Activity Chair

A sturdy-yet-cozy baby couch serves as a great place for your busy bb to get a little work done (and by work, we mean rattling, squeaking, and bopping, ofc). Consider this a precursor to a larger bouncer—perfect for your 3- to 6-month-old.

$139 AT CRATE & KIDS

Infantino Music and Lights 3-in-1 Discovery Seat and Booster

What tiny person wouldn’t love a light-up piano with a space for snacks? The Infantino discovery seat and booster is a one-stop shop: it even comes with straps to attach to a chair so your little one can sidle up to the table at dinner time (meaning you get a moment to actually eat with two hands!).

$42 AT AMAZON



Bumbo MultiSeat

The Bumbo multiseat has all the benefits of the Bumbo floor seat, but with added versatility. Always on the go? Bring along the multiseat to use as a travel high-chair for dinner at the grandparents’, or take out the foam insert to use as a regular booster for your big kid.

$58 AT AMAZON

Prince Lionheart BebePod Chubs Plus Baby Sitter and Booster Seat

Ingenuity Baby Base 2-in-1 Seat

You’ll love this 2-in-1 convertible baby seat and booster for the long haul, thanks to an easy wash tray (with a spot for storage!), secure harness and added level of support for wobbly little ones. “My chunky little guy grew out of the Bumbo SO soon… This has multiple seat settings that say it can fit up to a 4 year old as a booster seat, which makes it way more worth your money,” says Jason on Amazon.

$40 AT BED BATH & BEYOND



Little Tikes My First Seat

An extra-wide leg opening in the Little Tikes My First Seat means you’ll be able to use this cushy foam chair long past the baby phase. Parents also like the tall back that offers a little extra support, and a wide base for anti-tipping stability.
