  • My D is 2 so she still sits in her high chair at every meal at the table. I do give her snacks that don't get messy out of the high chair but she has a little table and chairs in her room so she is told to eat them there!

  • My son is 2 1/2 and he loves his high chair. There's nothing wrong with it at all. When we don't have a high chair, he does just fine at a regular table and doesn't even need a booster, so it's not like using the high chair is hurting anything. It's easy and he's used to it.

  • ummm.. i guess I'm the odd one! my dd is 20 months and LOVES her booster seat! But we also eat at the coffee table which leaves her running around and leaving messes everywhere. She also doesn't eat as much so I need to put her in the booster more often! I just hate how I give her HER food and she puts it on MY plate and tells me to eat it!!! LOL She wouldn't stay in her high chair after 13 months and climbed on the tray or screamed when I put the tray on (it slide and scared her every time).

  • my girls always ate in their highchairs at the table for meals, but did have snacks on the run through the day.

    we moved onto a booster seat from the high chair pretty quick though - high chair took too much room

  • My 2 year old is in the high chair. Sometimes for snacks i'll put her in her booster chair on the floor near the tv so I don't have to stay in the kitchen with her or I'll leave the snack on the coffee table. but meals are always sit down since I use a regular cup.

  • My 12 month old sits at her highchair for almost all of her meals/snacks. For her after-dinner snack, she eats in the livingroom. I usually put a little something in a bowl on the carpet, and she eats there.
