DD is morping into a monkey. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: She is climbing EVERYTHING (the entertainment unit, the speakers, the chairs, the cupboards), including her highchair.<br><br>
Should I assume that she is done eating when she stands up and tries to climb out of it? The seat belt thing is useless, plus, I don't really like tying her down. She'd just freak out anyway. I am always there to stop her from falling out, but if I try to put her back down in her seat she'll just stand up again. And again. And again. Etc.<br><br>
I feel like she has hardly eating in the past day or two because she would rather try to climb out of her seat!

Wouldn't you rather have her fuss than fall? Why is the seatbelt useless? Can she unfasten it?<br><br>
To answer your question, yes, I would assume she is finished and wants out.

When she tries to turn around to climb out I put her back in place. Why would she fall?<br><br>
The strap is useless because it's in an odd spot, it's too long, and really doesn't do nothing to hold her in. I think it's actually dangerous, because she would just end up hanging from it, and I would still have to sit RIGHT there with her to prevent that (which is what I do now). It does not stop her from trying to climb out of the seat. I don't know why it's even there. Yes she is within the wight, hight, and age limit. It's just a useless strap!

We have the same monkey issues here! I've started assuming that when ds stands up in the high chair, he's done. We eat a lot of meals and snacks on the go--I put them on the coffee table and he grazes, or pauses to be helped to spoon/fork feed, in between running around. It became too much of an issue to I gave up fighting about it!

That's what I've started doing too. It's just not worth it.
