My 15 mo sits in her highchair and won't eat. She spends her time grinding against the middle bar that keeps her from falling out. She has a *fabulous* time in her highchair! I don't really mind, except she's pretty distracted from eating. Maybe it's time we found a new chair, something between a highchair and a kid chair? Safe, but without that middle bar (toddler stripper pole for my dd). Suggestions? I'd prefer not to spend a fortune... less than $100 hopefully. TIA!

We also switched to a foam booster at around that age. It was actually safer than the high chair, because the high chair was being used for wild antics.<br><br>
If you really want a whole 'nother chair, you might try that Stokke KinderZeat thing, but I think it's more expensive than $100, probably closer to $200?

Yes, it is closer to $200 but One Step Ahead has a knock-off for about $100. Looks like a good option and you can often find coupon codes for the store.<br><br>
Good luck!

We have the <a href="http://tinyurl.com/2ysb4u" target="_blank">Kettler Tipp Topp</a> and it's fantastic! I like the design better than the Stokke, actually. It's listed here as $170-ish, but Amazon puts it on sale all the time for $99-$105, including shipping. We also have the universal padding, and it's great.

Oh, okay, maybe here's a temporary option - foam booster seat with a ring sling around the back of the chair (and her chest) as a strap? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

We have something called the HandySitt. It's a portable Danish wooden booster chair. The chair folds flat so you can take it with you on travel or to restaurants. It fits most chairs and the framework is adjustable. Works from 9.5 months to 4.5 years. We paid about $80 something for ours. I think it's totally worth it. <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FHandysitt-Child-Chair-Beech-Black%2Fdp%2FB000BNT3TA%2Fref%3Dsr_1_5%2F104-2978386-9932746%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbaby-products%26qid%3D1177369380%26sr%3D1-5" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Handysitt-Chil...7369380&sr=1-5</a>

We are having a killer time with ds at the table and he has sat in a booster seat since birth--we never used a high chair. He does not want to be strapped in, is too impatient to sit still that long, and I don't think he likes his feet dangling. We are getting this: <a href="http://www.potterybarnkids.com/products/p117/index.cfm?pkey=cfrntab%7Ck" target="_blank">http://www.potterybarnkids.com/produ...ey=cfrntab%7Ck</a> so he can get up and down to his heart's content without all the screeching.

I have a wooden restuarant booster chair without the straps or tray. I picked it up at the Last Chance Goodwill store for $1.00 a few years ago for DD, now DS is using it and can climb up and down no problem. Check the second hand/thrift stores in your area for these.
