You’ve mastered the newborn phase. Feeding, burping, and spit up has been taken care of. As you near that 6-month mark, the next phase is creeping around the corner – introducing solids. Once your pediatrician gives you the green light, you know how to start introducing food, but where should baby sit? We’ve teamed up with Boon and surveyed our network of moms to bring you the top must-haves when selecting your high chair.
Easy to Clean
The top piece of feedback we received from parents is that their high chair must be easy to clean. In the beginning, this may not seem like a deal-breaker. The mess is initially pretty easy to contain, but soon your baby becomes a toddler who likes to throw, smash, and crumble every bite of food. You will need to give the high chair a thorough wipe down after every meal and this must be simple! Look for seats without lots of nooks and crannies and stay away from high chairs with big comfy upholstered seats. Boon has clearly thought about real life with babies and toddlers. The entire seat can go in the dishwasher! Throw the seat cushion in the washing machine along with the harness straps and your GRUB will look brand new.
Easy to Use and Safe
Parents also love simplicity. When you’re trying to wrangle a messy 8-month-old out of their seat, the last thing you should worry about is how to undo the harness. Simple harnesses and trays that are easy to remove are essential for everyday use. Look for a 5 point harness, keeping your little one safe from their first meal in the high chair. Boon’s GRUB has both a 5 point harness and an excellent tray (which is also dishwasher safe). For added simplicity, there is a hook on the back of the high chair for easy bib storage.
As the generation who was raised on computers and screens is now having their own babies, we must be mindful about proper posture & ergonomic seating. We love that Boon GRUB has built-in an adjustable 5-position footrest to provide more ergonomic seating. We also love that the seat sits straight up and down, allowing for a 90 degree angle when seated.
Your high chair will essentially become another piece of furniture in your home. You don’t want to be stuck staring at something if you hate how it looks. Boon GRUB is a gorgeous high chair that will fit seamlessly into any kitchen. Plus, the seat pads now come in both green and pink (in addition to grey) making it great for twins or to spruce up a seat for your second little one down the road.
Finally, we love a high chair that is going to grow with your little one. We will always prioritize selecting a high chair with these options. The Boon GRUB can be used as a high chair, a table/counter height chair, and even a play table chair for your toddlers and young children. The best part? The chair has a sleek aesthetic, meaning it will fit with your home’s decor while being a safe place for your 3-year-old to have lunch!
Thank you to Boon for making this post possible.
