When we have dinner at night, we've been putting Josie in the bouncy chair on the table, so she can "eat" with us. If she is sitting, all she wanted to do is lean forward, or sit up even more. My fear with this is that the bouncy seat is going to topple over and Josie will be taking her first face plant. So...the next best option is the bumbo. This works some of the time, when she is calm...like this evening!
