When my daughter was younger, we used to take her out to the finest restaurants in New York City and other diners would stop to compliment us on her fine behavior. “We didn’t even know there was a baby in the restaurant,” they would say and my husband and I would congratulate each other the way only parents of one, preternaturally well-behaved child can.
Then we had my son.
The first time we took him to a nice restaurant, at ten months’ of age, he plucked a saucer from table and threw it like a frisbee half-way across the restaurant, where it shattered into a million tiny pieces.
From then on, waitresses looked at us as if we were deranged as we frantically cleared a three foot radius around him every time we sat down to eat.
And high chairs? Hah. No match for our Houdini. As he got a bit older, he stopped flinging the tableware but he still had a habit of extricating himself from high chairs.
Here’s my little imp, now a big boy, demonstrating the usefulness of this booster seat.
My son uses a “big boy” chair now but at the time we searched everywhere for a lightweight, portable booster seat.
According to A Parent Company, this seat weighs only 1.5 lbs, is the only booster for feeding that meets, and is BPA and Phthalate-free.
The seat is very easy to wipe clean and folds up into an easy travel bag with a carry strap. Plus, the design is an on-trend, mod-style espresso and ice-blue color.
Most importantly, even my almost-three-year-old cannot pull his escape act in this seat. He found it both comfortable and secure.
We have no idea if our new baby is going to mimic his big brother’s actions but, if he does, we’re prepared.
