This week’s LBMF MOM PICK OF THE WEEK is all about high chairs! There’s so many to choose from (ranging from $- $$$) so how do you know which product to select? Again almost all of these are about preference but a lot of you have found it helpful when I share some of my products of choice 🙂 BTW: you can also check out my full Baby Registry Guide post if you haven’t already )I think I need to update it since having Margaret as there have been a lot of things that I no longer use/ newer and more updated products on the market) let me know your thoughts!
LALO High Chair: We recently received the lalo high chair which I’m really excited about. PROS: Biggest positive for me is that it’s a 2-in-1 high chair + play chair combo so it truly grows with your child when they no longer need to be in a high chair. It comes with 2 sets of wooden legs (tall ones for high chair and small ones for play chair) so you can easily switch out to become a play chair for arts, crafts etc. SEE: HERE Second: it’s easy to put together, I usually defer to Frank on these baby products but I was able to do it myself in under 5 minutes. Third: The high-chair itself is really compact, slim not at all bulky. We can easily slide it under our countertop when we’re not using it (we couldn’t do that with the oxo version) or bring it up to our family table. Lastly: it’s also aesthetically pleasing. We choose this pretty pink with a grey dot removable cushion which is also makes cleaning it easy. (Available in a few colors). CONS: the chair does not recline so your baby really needs to be able to sit up themselves.
OXO TOT: We had this OXO-TOT high chair for Rosie and used it for Margaret while she was still learning to keep her head up. Updated Version: HERE PROS: It comes on wheels which allows you to maneuver the high chair from place to place relatively easily. I also like that it reclines so once Margaret could hold up her own bottle we tipped it back a little bit and whala. One hand tray removal also makes cleaning easy. CONS: It’s on the bulkier side and it’s not my favorite appearance wise but other then that no complaints over here and would definilty recommend it.
Other contenders: Trendy pick: a lot of people swear by this Stokke High Chair (it also grows with your child from 6 months- adult. I found the price way to high for a high chair so it wasn’t for us. Rosie also ended up going straight to the regular chair at the table from the high chair so I personally don’t find it necessary. Budget Friendly options: My mom (grandma) has this budget friendly option at her home in Florida. Tiny spaces high chair: HERE
