New favorite high chair...
A few months ago, on my search for the perfect high chair I finally found the answer. My three year old was without a high chair. We used the fisher price booster and never graduated to a full high chair. My husband and I could not agree on style. The one I liked, he hated...and I was not willing to compromise. OXO has come out with a stylish and easy to clean model that will last until your child is tall enough to sit on an adult chair. My favorite part is that the tray can be removed with one hand, and it has an adjustable height and footrest. Stylish enough that you will not mind keeping it out - it may even complement your furniture (and add extra seating?!)
OXO, the American brand famed for its universal design philosophy and clever range of kitchen tools, has recently launching OXO Tot – a new design-led collection of baby equipment. Genius if you ask me! Suitable from 6 months to 5 years, the Sprout features an adjustable height seat with smooth EVA foam cushions, 5-point harness, removable crotch post and tray, and solid wood legs. It comes in a wood base (birch or walnut) and choice of three colors, taupe, orange and green.
The Sprout is easily converted into a child’s dinning chair as he or she grows, with a few minor adjustments. The seat is lowered to its lowest setting and the crotch post removed with a Phillips head screwdriver. A new seat pad, which is included, replaces the infant seat pad, and the tray and straps removed so your growing child can sit at the table. Nothing additional to buy or be bothered with. Compared to the other high chairs on the market - this really is a stand out. The smooth design prevents food from getting trapped and makes it extremely easy to clean. The seat can easily be lifted off to bring to the sink to be washed too.
The fact that you can convert this to a higher child’s dining chair is brilliant, giving your young child the correct posture at the dinner table. It also gives them a truly comfy dining chair that puts them at the right height - no more kneeling on an adult chair or squirming around at the dinner table! The base and legs are very sturdy and the footprint is compact, taking up very little space.
Now my biggest decision...do I need one or two?!
