Mealtime typical equates to a filthy floor in my house. Not only do I subscribe to the “learning about your food through exploration” approach in the early stages, I have a youngest daughter who has earned the nickname “Shovel”.
The Tripp Trapp highchair was top of my list when I was pregnant with my first daughter. The therapist in me loved the way it allows for proper positioning (adjustable foot support and adjustable seat depth). Plus, I liked the idea of having the baby at the table in a normal human chair. It seemed like a better idea than placing her in an alien ship plastic device. I didn’t realize the discrepant mess factor between the two designs. Without a tray, food has direct access to my floor.
*Tripp Trapp has since improved their design and you can now buy a tray accessory. Sitting at the table without a tray is fantastic…. when they are older! *
The Tiny Diner has been a great device to solve my mess problem! It catches the rogue food that drops en route to mouth. And it’s portable for those lunches out!
