Can you put a baby who is an assisted sitter (i.e., cannot quite sit on their own) in a highchair?

  • Probably but we actually used a walker that had a removal toy with a tray under it. She never used it as a walker.

  • I did. I just stayed nearby and put something behind him (like my pocketbook) to make him fit in there more snuggly.

  • Idk, try it and see, if she can't then try putting a fluffy blanket behind her that may help!

  • We did at home. Just tilted the headrerst back a bit. She wanted to sit at the table with mom and dad. She wasn't old enough to eat but she did like to sit.
