  • At 15 months she moved to a booster so she could join in with the family meal at the table - I wish I had switched her sooner because she instantly loved it - stopped messing around with her food so much, and ate more.

  • My 2 1/2 yo still uses hers but we don't use the tray, just pull her up to the table. She LOVES having her own chair that nobody else is allowed to sit in.

  • He was probably around a year, if that old. I would have kept him in longer, but his sitter was alternating between having him sit in a high chair and sitting at a little table and eventually he got used to the table. He would fight me about going into the high chair, and finally I just gave up and bought him a Little Tikes table. Eventually when we got our dining table, I put him into a booster chair, but that didn't last long. He prefers sitting in the regular chair. Fortunately he's tall enough so its not too much of an issue.

  • My DD is 24 moths old. She kneels on a regular chair and eats just fine. She stopped using her high chair at around 22 months. She doesn't like booster seats.

  • My 19 month old. twins will be in their high chairs as long as they can fit......They make a big mess when they eat so using a tray keeps it off the floor :)
