High Chairs

DD has now discovered how to escape from her bumbo :rolleyes: and is in danger of toppling over her bouncy chair - so we need to buy a high chair asap!

Any recommendations?

We would really like one that's wooden - i've seen some in an old book which convert from a high chair to a table and desk - has anyone seen these out and about (really hoping m24 gets picture happy here! :D)

RE: High Chairs

Primrose,

this is bargain at £29.97 kiddicare, you can't beat them for prices they will price match if found cheaper, we have just got 2 Chicco Happy Snack, £39.99, reclines 3 ways but isn't a table & chairs, you could always get a little table & chair later on? How does she escape from Bumbo?

I love the stoke ones! they change with the child so will eventually become a proper chair. No the cheapest though :D

I like the Stokke ones too but they are pricey.

Our is from Mamma's & Pappas & has 7 different height settings which is great. Got it from an NCT sale & it's as good as new!

Escaping from a bumbo???!!! 8o I thought they were supposed to last to 14 months (just bought one for DS hoping I'd get my money's worth from it :rolleyes:)

Thanks Shaz, we are a bit of a way from kent unfortunately.

Thats them Lisa! Actually looking at them they do take up a lot of space don't they! Maybe we are better off getting one that folds and, as you say, getting a desk and chair later. How long are they in high chairs for do you think?

DD escapes by straightening her back and legs - she hasn't actually got out, as in onto the floor, but she spends her whole time straight as a board in it, which makes feeding a bit tricky LOL!

they love the Bumbo! I had ours for 2 weeks & they aren't sitting up on them own unaided yet & they do slouch a bit in the highchair but I'm perseverring(spelling?) the straps are very strong & I put the seat forward for feeding & then back on the last one reclines for milk or a rest! & they were a bargain, my friend haas one & the seat is very padded & folds up! & has a large basket at bottom for toys/wipes food!!!!!!

Here are ours.

Yes definately a bonus if it reclines - DD has just started to fall asleep on the last spoonful, apparently this is quite common as they get older as the whole eating thing is quite exhausting for them.

The Stokke ones look really stylish and funky don't they, could really do with a table for DD though as she is really into bashing things on surfaces, bashing her cup keeps her amused for ages at the moment!

DD1 had a Tripp Trapp highchair when she was a baby and still uses it now when she goes to her Dads. In fact, I sat on it a few weeks ago and it's great. They are big, you do have to have them at the table and you have to practice getting your little on in and out because they don't open up at the front..... but I think they're lovely. :D As she's grown the seat has been lowered and she has somewhere to rest her feet so she's always at the right height for eating at the table.

I don't have a highchair for DD2 as we don't have room. She has a chair booster seat which she sits in on the living room floor and is affectionately known as her "sit down chair" :D Yesterday she chucked her pork chop, jacket spud, peas and gravy onto the living room carpet so it's really advisable to feed your babies somewhere with a mop-able floor :rolleyes:.

Here she is ages ago when she was still bald and gummy and sporting a blimp on her head :D

I have one that's wooden and converts to a table and chair which I bought from the Glasgow Pram Centre --- but it was Callum's - ie I bought it 7 years ago so don't think they will have it anymore :( - you could try phoning them and describing it to them and see if they have anything in store - not everything in store is on the web - or next time I'm up I'll have a check for you (although not sure when I'll be going next!!!

Hope you find what your looking for
