Mama’s Helper: Tiny Diner


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!

    The therapist in me loves my Tripp Trapp – adjustable foot support and adjustable height. I l like having my kids eat with us right at the table instead of having a tray but a #2 is just a whole heck of a lot messier in our house. Luckily, the new Tripp Trapp’s do have a tray option that you can add onto it.

    I am happy with the purchase, just wish that the tray attachment would work on my old version for when #3 is ready.

    I have put it away for F as she insists on sitting on an adult chair like her big sis currently does. I am contemplating getting a 2nd one so that E can use the original (also great for table top fine motor work) and then F would stop messing around.
