question about highchairs

Somehow we have avoided buying a highchair for Alec up until now, but we are way past due. As part of my research on the various options, I thought I would ask you all for reviews….do you love your highchair? Hate it? Recommendations? Suggestions? All comments are welcome. On a related note, does anyone have a recommendation for a jumper/jumperoo contraption? Thanks in advance!!

  1. we have 2 different ones (both have been very handy, especially with guests with small children). As our “everyday” one we have the Svan (http://astore.amazon.com/working-mommy-20/detail/B000K1XPLU/002-2888013-6972063) which I love – although it’s expensive and the tray is not completely tight (it tends to wobble a bit, but it’s not a big deal). I really love this because it’s small, it looks cool in our kitchen (and can be stowed away easily) and it’s easy to clean. Also, because it’s small, I noticed that it doesn’t let as much food pass to the seat as the larger, plastic ones do. One thing I dont’ really like about this one is that it’s low (table height). It’s nice because it can be used at the table when she gets older, but it’s annoying when you’re trying to feed her oatmeal or other spoon foods (before they feed themselves) and you either need to get a chair and sit there or bend over to feed them.

    The other one we have is the Fisher Price Booster Seat (http://astore.amazon.com/working-mommy-20/detail/B0002VZ21E/002-2888013-6972063). This one is great for traveling since it is small, easy to clean, lightweight, and dishwasher safe. It’s the one we take to grandma’s or let toddlers use when they come to visit. It’s also the one we used for Madeline’s first birthday (when she ate the smash cake) since it was easy to clean and could be easily hosed off or thrown into the dishwasher. I know that Sara uses this one as her primary highchair and she seems to love it.

    Hope this helps!
