A Decent, Good-Looking High Chair

Posted

Pros: Wood, can be used from infancy through childhood

Cons: Two-handed tray removal, some parts not solid wood

We have used this high chair (along with the infant insert seat) since my daughter was 6 months old.  She has always seemed comfortable in it.  I primarily like it for the wood design and the fact that it turns into a toddler/child chair that can pull right up to the table.  The infant insert is squishy plastic that wipes clean easily.  Unfortunately, the hole in the seat where the crotch buckle threads through is right where food falls when she drops it in her lap.  So we have to take the insert out after every meal to clean it.  Also, the insert is only secured by velcro to the high chair.  In practice, that was never a problem, but in theory it just...

Why is this Discontinued??

Posted

Pros: Size, portability, design, ease of clean-up

Cons: Discontinued, no non-slip

I use this potty for my 9 month old daughter (we practice elimination communication), and it is our favorite.  She has been able to sit on it comfortably since around 4-5 months old, and I think it will work for a long time to come.  It is compact so I can take it to the car when we go out.  My favorite aspect of this potty is that when my daughter sits on it, she is in a squat rather than just sitting on a chair with a hole.  Only downside is that it has no non-slip surface on the bottom, so it slides around the bathroom floor.   I would purchase more if they hadn't been discontinued!

Excellent Quality

Pros: Durable, variety of colors, no leaks

Cons: Slightly difficult emptying bag

I own two of these bags - one for the wash and one to use.  I wash them with the diapers and line dry. They dry quickly and are ready to go by the time I need to use the next one.  They hold a ton, and they seem very durable.  I don't foresee needing to replace these any time soon, and will probably use them with the next baby as well.     They come in so many colors!  I had a hard time choosing because they all looked so nice.   The only downside (and this is minor) is that it is slight hard to empty the bag into the wash.  It takes two hands because it is elastic rather than drawstring.  

What a great carrier!

Pros: Comfortable, adjustable and pretty

Cons: Insufficient padding on shoulder straps, not a lot of storage

  I was able to try out the Boba 3G through the Mothering Mavens program.  I was using an Ergo at the time, so I was able to compare the two similar soft-structured carriers.    Overall, I am a fan of the Boba 3G.  Iā€™m still using it after the trial period, and I prefer it over the Ergo.  However, my husband is more comfortable using the Ergo than the Boba due to his body type. If you are trying to decide between different soft-structured carriers, keep in mind that each one is slightly different, and what fits one person may not fit another person in the same way.  I am very petite (5ā€™4ā€), and I find that the Boba fits me well, and I prefer some...
