...is it really not okay for your dd to not touch those things, or could she touch them if she was careful. Instead of saying no touch maybe you could encourage her to touch gently. We used the "one finger touch" idea starting at about 11 months (when he started walking) by teaching him to touch things with only one finger. With one finger you can not grab or break things so it was acceptable. Whenever he made a dash for something breakable we would be on his heals to make sure he was being careful and if he wasn't we would say "remember your one finger touch".

If you are having to say "no touch" 1000 times a day, I would think that maybe changing your home environment would be a good move. For the short while that she is little and still learning how to touch carefully and what not to touch, why not just put away the breakables and latch the cabinets to dangerous or breakable things...Maybe I am misunderstanding what you have around that is considered "no touch" - examples?
Re: high chair - I would put it in the garage for a while and sit her on your lap or get one of those "attach to the table" type of kiddie chairs - do you know what I mean?

Instead of saying no touch - try "soft" and then gently show her what soft touches feel like...I read in "The Discipline Book", I believe, that chidlren often only hear the last word in our requests...
There are a series of books called Positive Discipline - you can check out their site at www.positivediscipline.com....
4. Change your environment - make it toddler friendly. If she is touching things that you don't want her to touch, have a basket of toddler safe things to touch and do a trade - reenforce that you are sharing.
