We got the Mamas and Papas Baby Snug Seat when our daughter was about 5 months old. We used it a lot and it was a great buy – even now my daughter is 16 months old, she likes to sit in it herself in the living room and enjoys having somewhere she can climb into to play.
The Mamas and Papas Baby Snug Seat is an ergonomic seat designed for young babies to play in. It’s a little bit like a “bumbo” only it’s more ergonomic and therefore better for baby. It has an insert for smaller babies and then this can be taken out when your baby grows so they can fit as they get bigger.
There’s a wipe clean tray (in fact, the entire thing is wipe clean) so you can feed your bubba in this seat. We used ours on several occasions if we were being lazy in the living room rather than sitting at the table. We also used it as a seat for her at other people’s houses if we were there for dinner.
As well as the removable tray, there’s also a removable toy attachment which sticks on to the tray and has a few interactive toys on it.
What is good about the Mamas and Papas Baby Snug Seat?
We loved this seat for our daughter and we were actually going to sell it on once our daughter reached the age she is now but when I got it cleaned up and ready to sell, my daughter protested quite a bit and has now put it next to her ball pit as a place to sit and every evening she will go and take a seat and play for a bit or just shout at us from the chair. She loves it.
It’s at its most practical when it is used for smaller babies who need a space to sit comfortably to eat or to play. Like I said before, we used this on multiple occasions at the grandparents or just in our own living room when we weren’t eating at the table. It gave her somewhere safe to sit and the little table is great for a small plate or bowl.
The toy tray was good fun for a while, until my daughter realised she could pull it off fairly easily. However, by the looks of it, it has been redesigned since we purchased so potentially they’ve taken on board some customer feedback and improved the attachment. I know before we purchased there were some reviews that said about the play tray being a bit useless for a baby that’s enthusiastic.
To be honest, the only downside for us has been the play tray. It’s a bit pointless and to be honest, the toys aren’t that great. My daughter preferred to play with them outside of the seat to be honest. They are good toys but they aren’t something that will keep your baby entertained for very long at all.
Other than that, there’s not much negative to say about the Mamas and Papas Baby Snug Seat at all. It’s been very useful for us and our daughter still uses it now at 16 months old – she also still fits in the seat with the insert so she’s got plenty of room left to use it when she’s bigger as we can take the insert out.
Overall thoughts on the Mamas and Papas Baby Snug Seat
All in all, the Baby Snug Seat is a great purchase if you’re looking for something that will keep your baby contained for a meal or just for a bit of time to do some chores. Be careful leaving an older baby in it for too long though as once our daughter could, she would try and climb out and with the tray attached that could cause some issues!
