Tripp Trapp by Stokke
When Josi was ready to give food a try, I went on a highchair search. After lots of research I was able to find the Tripp Trapp by Stokke. I choose this highchair due to the fact that it is designed to grow with your child. It can be adjusted and used until your baby is 3 years old. It was one of the more expensive options, but I liked the idea of being able to get the ultimate bang for my buck. You can buy the Tripp Trapp with everything included, such as the high chair frame, baby set attachment, detachable safe try and seat cushion or you can buy everything separate.
This highchair has cushions available for babies of all ages. By the time we purchased this highchair, Josi was too big for the Infant Seat but that is also an option offered by Stokke. We started out with the Tripp Trapp Baby Cushion and eventually bought the Tripp Trapp Cushion as she grew. All the cushions are machine washable and easily cleaned.
Eventually, Josi started to cry every time we tried putting her in the Tripp Trapp. This was so disappointing because we really loved this highchair and so many moms we spoke to said their kids loved their Tripp Trapp as well. But since Josi tends to beat to the sound of her own drum, I decided to look for a less expensive option.
Inglesina Fast Table Chair
By the time Josi decided the Tripp Trapp by Stokke wasn’t for her, she was able to sit up by herself, so I decided to give the Ingelsina Fast Table Chair a try. I was familiar with this product since I had nannied in the past but originally was looking for a chair that I could move all over the house. But once I came to terms with the fact that meal time was turning into a mini soap opera staring Josi herself, we bought her the Ingelsina Fast Table Chair with the detachable tray.
Josi instantly loved this seat and I loved the price even more. I was able to attach it to our kitchen counter and sit right next to her. I think she liked the idea of being in the same level as me while she ate. The detachable try, makes for an easy clean up and is even dishwasher safe. We love this chair so much that we bought a second chair to bring with us when we go out to dinner or are visiting people out of town. It is easily assembled and is also machine washable.
