10 Best Baby Floor Seat in 2021 Reviewed
We’ve spent over 12 hours reading reviews and speaking to product owners to choose the floor seats for babies below. Each has been chosen to suit different types of children and lifestyles. Take a look at the products below to find the right baby floor seat for you and your little one.
Fisher-Price Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat
Before you read this review, there’s something you need to know…
I’m a little bias with this product as out of all the ones I’ve ever reviewed, this is the one I spent my own money on.
My son absolutely loves the Fisher-Price Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat and unlike others listed below, we’ve never had any issues with his chunky legs fitting in the seat.
The chair itself is wide, supportive and sturdy. It’s certainly not going to start wobbling when baby gets excited and starts kicking his legs.
The crinkle and squeak paws help keep baby entertained while the ability to add two linked toys will help with motor skill development and provide baby with more sensory fun.
If your baby is still a little shaky without head support (but can support their own head) then your little one will love the built in head rest that really helps with posture while providing a good level of support.
- Baby will love being able to play and watch the world go by
- Support for baby is without a doubt the BEST of any chair we’ve tested
- Easy to keep clean
- Additional head support is perfect when needed
- Nothing, I honestly can’t fault this product.
Hugaboo Infant Sitting Chair
If your baby is desperate to sit up by himself but lacks the stability needed to do so then you’ll want to read on as this could be the product for you!
The Hugaboo Infant Sitting Chair provides 360 degrees of comfy, stable support for baby that’ll soon see him gazing around the room or grabbing their toes.
Suitable for babies 3 months and up who can support their own head, the Hugaboo Chair is available in a range of colors, made from 100% Polyester.
Washing is a breeze, simply remove the cover, throw it in the washer and let it dry.
If there was one complaint about the Hugaboo Infant Sitting Chair it would be that once little legs start to get a bit chunkier, it can be a bit more difficult to get baby out of the chair.
With this in mind, the product is really only suitable for babies between three and seven months.
- Sturdy, soft and comfortable
- Keeps baby secure when sat up
- Excellent designed
- Washes well
- Baby will outgrow the seat in three to seven months
Bumbo Floor Seat
The Bumbo Floor Seat is one of those baby products that’s grown in popularity with parents over the last few years.
Made from Low Density Foam, the contoured design helps properly support baby and encourages good posture.
Where the Bumbo Floor Seat really shines is in how handy it is for baby lead weaning.
If you’ve ever given baby finger food you’ll no doubt know how impressive the mess is that they can make.
With the Bumbo, this isn’t a worry as cleaning is as simple as grabbing a cloth and wiping it down.
The seat is pretty safe too thanks to a three point safety harness that keeps baby safe and secure when using the chair.
Finally, as the seat is so light, bringing it with you when you go on vacation or even when you take baby to see grandparent isn’t an issue.
- Allows baby to sit up independently while strengthening his core
- Really easy to assemble
- Cleaning is as simple as wiping down with a cloth
- Great for baby lead weaning
- Can be very tight for those baby’s with rolley-polley legs

Given how easy it is to assemble and how compact it is, the SuperSeat is ideal if your looking for a floor seat to take with you when you go visiting family or friends.
Finally, should baby become bored of the included toys, it’s easy to replace them with new ones.
If there was one complaint about the Summer Infant 3-Stage Deluxe SuperSeat it would be that purple tray that wraps around the seat can be tricky to fit and it didn’t have the best build quality.
- Easy to keep clean.
- Easy to assemble.
- Ideal for travelling.
- You constantly need to check the tray is secure.
Infantio 3-in-1 Discovery Booster Seat
The Infantio 3-in-1 Discovery Booster Seat is ideal if you’re looking for a floor seat that will grow with your baby.
Unlike Bumbo seats that can often be too tight on baby’s legs, the 3-in-1 Discovery Booster Seat has plenty of room for little one to grow.
Putting the seat together and taking it down again is a breeze and takes seconds to do.
What we really like about the 3-in-1 Discovery Booster Seat is how well it doubles as a play station and a feeding chair.
Packed full of fun features, this is a fantastic floor seat that will keep baby entertained while helping them develop.
- Fantastic design with lots of room for little legs.

Little Tikes My First Seat
The Little Tikes My First Seat is billed as a parenting must-have.
But is it any good?
Designed for babies 4 months and up, the seat provides excellent neck, back, leg and arm support which makes it an ideal choice when your baby is first getting to grips with sitting.
The seat is made of 100% foam that not only makes it light but also makes cleaning a breeze.
Finally, we really like the patented anit-tipping design which makes the chair almost impossible to tip over.
- Patented anit-tipping provides real piece of mind.
- Great build quality.
- Feeding tray is sold separately
Ingenuity Baby Base 2-in-1 Seat
Unlike the other floor chairs on our list, the Ingenuity Baby Base 2-in-1 Seat is more of a feeding seat than an activity chair.
Either way, it’s actually a very solid design that allows baby to feed and play with their own toys.
The gray foam cushion is removable which makes is super easy to clean. This also means that it can still be used as baby grows.
One great feature is that when the tray isn’t in use, it can be stored away safe under the seat.
- Very plush foam used.
- Tray stores under the seat when not in use.
- Seatbelt buckle is very tough to click
Hiccapop Omniboost Travel Booster Seat
The Hiccapop Omniboost Travel Booster Seat has gained a bit of a cult following online.
It’s easy to see why.
It’s clearly been designed by people with children who know what parents and baby’s need in a floor seat.
Firstly, the straps are positioned properly to keep baby safe – this is supported by clips that are easy to use!
Next up, the chair material comes off and can be put in the washer or wiped clean.
Finally, the Hiccapop Omniboost Travel Booster Seat comes with a lifetime guarantee – something that few chairs come with.
The only downside that we’ve been able to find is that some users noted that the leavers to remove the tray do require a bit of force.
- Brilliant design.
- Tray is dishwasher safe.
- Seat is removable and machine washable.
- Tray release mechanism is stiff.
Infantino Prop-A-Pillar Tummy Time & Seated Support
The Infantino Prop-A-Pillar Tummy Time & Seated Support is a great alternative to the more rigid “Bumble” style seats.
The caterpillar design stacks to create a soft “C” shaped seat that supports baby while he learns to sit.
Unwind the material and baby has the perfect tummy time toy.
- Great alternative to Bumble Seats.
- Washes well.
- Lacks support for long term use.
Playgro Music and Lights Comfy Car
The Playgro Music and Lights Comfy Car is available in pink and red and provides endless hours of fun for baby.
Your baby will lover hearing the horn beep, the indicators click and the rattling balls spinning.
The cushions feel plush and comfortable and the toys will keep them entered.
One thing to note is that this doesn’t provide as much support as other chairs on our list so is probably better suited to older babies that can sit rather than those who are just learning.
- Great alternative to Bumble Seats.
- Wipes clean.
- More suitable for babies that are all ready sitting.
