When baby Addy started eating, she really wanted to eat. In fact, she was so adamant about wanting “real people” food that I was worried because I thought it was way too soon. I wanted my BABY to eat BABY FOOD! I have a feeling it was because she saw her big brother eating everything but baby food so she wanted to also. She was six months when I started trying baby foods and she ate them for a few months but she soon decided it was time to eat big brother’s food. Not only did she want to eat what he was eating, but she wanted to do it like he was — all by herself, and in her own chair! We needed to get a seat for this little girl, and quick!
InGenuity (by Brights Starts) came to our rescue with their Chair Top High Chair. First, let me tell you why I adore this seat and then I’ll tell you the details. This is a chair top high chair, meaning it can be attached to a regular kitchen table chair. Genius. We travel to my parent’s house often in Ohio and this is SO incredibly easy to pack in the back of the van, it’s a space saver for sure! Reason number two? Hubby and I sit on the floor A LOT with the kids and we are able to easily move this from the chair to the floor for baby Addy or LA to sit in! I’ve used it for crafts with LA, pat-a-cake with both kids, flash cards with LA and many, many more things because it allows them a seat so close to us on the floor. They both love sitting in the “seat”.
InGenuity has thought of everything with this high chair! The convenient 2-piece reversible seat pad is made of stain-resistant fabrics that are wipeable and machine-washable, definitely something you need when a baby/toddler use the seat for eating! The seat has four height positions to fit most table sizes as well as three reclining levels. The removable Smart Level Tray™ remains flat even when seat is reclined, and has 3 locking positions to grow with baby. We LOVE that it can grow with baby because Addy is only 11 months old and has some time to grow with the seat! As far as growing with baby, the seat even converts to a booster seat for easy toddler transition! Fabulous, right? The tray is super easy to clean with the EasyClean™ insert being dishwasher-safe. Speaking of the tray, there are built-in holders on the tray that are perfect for drinks or snacks. I know, I know, you really want one now, don’t you!? The only thing I would improve on this chair is the cushions. I think because we often moved it from chair top to floor and because Addy was often found climbing in it, the cushion on bottom moved around a lot. I think we may use some Velcro strips to keep in in place, easily fixed and didn’t cause any major problems!
We’ve had such an amazing experience with this seat. It’s been so useful in more situations than I could have imagined. We definitely don’t use it only for meals and snacks. It gets a lot of other use, and with BOTH our toddler and infant. It’s convenient, portable and it has a fun gender neutral design. It is just what we wanted in terms of something to grow with our baby girl.
