The Great bebePOD Exchange & 50 Seat Giveaway

Have your heard the news? In light of the U.S. Consumer Safety Trade Commissions’ urgent concern about parent’s using the Bumbo baby seat a couple of weeks ago, Prince Lionheart has decided to take drastic measures. I am sure there are many of you who own these seats and it may be hard to think about forking out the money to purchase an alternative, but it poses serious risks for your little one as there are no safety straps. Just a couple of months ago I sat my son in one while we were at a friend’s house and we turned around and he was crawling on the other side of the room. I thought it was some sort of fluke since he was only about 8 months old, but I plopped him in it again, he leaned himself forward and off he was crawling with the seat toppled over behind him. Needless to say I was happy I never invested in one as tempting as it was to try it and compare it to our bebePOD. There are no straps and the seat is extremely light and easy for my little guy to lean himself out.

Although it seems the majority of these injuries were a result of caregivers using the seats on elevated surfaces regardless of the multiple warnings, I understand that sometimes babies just crave to be closer to your level if you are sitting at the table or in other parts of the house. There are products like the bebePOD Flex that offer seat and waist straps to safely give the option to families to have their babies up at the table along side them. Here is the CPSC recall announcement reminder for anyone who is interested.

Prince Lionheart believes in the safety of children. We are all about families and our little ones. Our children bring light and laughter and hope to our day. On a daily basis, we give our absolute best to protect and care for our babies. Either it’s the inherent mama and papa bear protective instinct we get when it comes to rearing our cubs, or just simple wisdom: we always try. And with that, we want to let parents know there is a safe choice when it comes to a soft infant seat. We understand that choices aren’t always presented at the right time, so here is your chance to spread the word or take advantage of our exchange offer, and make the choice to swap out your strapless, foam, Bumbo seat for the bébéPOD® flex with the dual strap system. Free of charge. We’re that serious about safety.

Prince Lionheart will be offering up to 1000 bebePOD trade ins to help families switch to a safer option for their children and they are also giving away 50 bebePOD seats in this event. The giveaway and trade in details may be found on the Prince Lionheart Facebook page.

    I forwarded this info to a friend that has a bumbo

  2. we have had a bumbo for some time (since my son was born) and my sister had it before that. I think this is truly awesome of Prince Lionheart to be offering this! I just may have to do this so my little girl has somewhere safe to sit! She has long been very very close to getting out of hers. Do you think a church could do this too? My church had a bumbo donated to them a year or so ago. They like to use it in the nursery for the little ones. Hmmm. I may have to let them know.

    • Anyone can send them in…they are still accepting them. Tell your church–especially when they use it for some many little ones!

    I bought a bumbo then quickly returned it when I saw my little one pushing himself backwards. I just knew he would end up smashing his head on the floor.
