*I am not being paid to endorse this product– just sharing a personal opinion!
I have been asked by several of my readers about our favorite baby products. I tried to put together a post listing all of our favorites, but frankly, they keep changing kid-to-kid, as each one has his own quirks or preferences and the technology keeps changing as well.
But this product is something I highly recommend. We have the space for a high chair, but I really wasn’t digging our Eddie Bauer Babies R Us 2007 big bulky number. It was a gift when Milo was born and it really did serve its purpose, so I am grateful for it of course. But that thing was hard to clean, heavy, and took up a lot of space. And one of our favorite places to go out to eat (ahem, Winslow’s Home) doesn’t have high chairs, which makes for some interesting dinners with a squirmy baby on someone’s lap. So about a month ago, anticipating our beach trip, we went ahead and pulled the trigger on the Inglesina Fast Table Chair.
Both Andrew and I love this thing. It fits right onto the edge of a kitchen table or counter top and fastens securely there, suspending baby so his legs hang down and he can reach the counter top or tabletop easily.
I know it seems scary, but this thing is seriously not going anywhere! He isn’t going to fall!
One of the perks of this chair is its size. It is tiny, and collapses flat for travel, arms folding in and seat lifting flush with the back. It fits into a reusable grocery bag with tons of room to spare (for bibs, food, silverware, etc.) which makes traveling with it a breeze.
But I also love that there is no tray to clean up. After Emil eats, we simply wipe the table or countertop clean and there are no dishes or small crevices to clean out or scrub. Occasionally some food will get in-between the arms and the countertop, but it’s very easy to loosen, slide over, and wipe clean that area. The fabric is also very easy to wipe clean. I wish we had known about this when we were living in tiny quarters in Baltimore– would have made life easier for sure!
And the dog gets anything that might drop!
I like it!
