We’ve been Nuby brand reps for around four months now and have been sent lots of gorgeous toys and accessories to use on our weaning journey, but last week the best item we’ve had yet arrived and I’m so pleased with it that I just had to share on the blog; it’s the Nuby travel booster seat.
I’ve been very open about Dexter’s weaning journey from baby led weaning to toddler led feeding and it’s been incredible to watch him grow from a tiny baby who could just about stuff a tiny pancake in his mouth to a small child who uses cutlery to spoon pasta into his mouth while sat quietly at his Ikea table and chair.
We’ve used the high chair less and less until we found that he was eating most meals at home at it his little table and chair, however this didn’t sit comfortably with me as it felt like he was segregated from us and mostly he was glued to the television while he wolfed his food down. I really wanted to have him sit at the table with us but in all honesty, despite him being tall for his age he wouldn’t have been able to sit comfortably on one of our chairs and he wouldn’t have been able to reach the food on the table.
Luckily this is where Nuby stepped in and offered us one of their booster seats and I am in love.
The Nuby travel booster seat will fit on any chair and you simply adjust the straps to secure it against the back of the chair and underneath. It comes with a padded bottom which boosts baby/toddler so he can reach the food on the table, as well as two clips so he can be securely strapped in with no concerns he will fall out.
No longer do we need to worry if our favourite restaurant has a high chair available for us, the Nuby travel booster seat folds up to create a small satchel which you can conveniently carry on your shoulder along with your changing bag.
Since the introduction of the booster seat, I’ve noticed that Dex is more chatty during meal times and much more interactive. He tries to pinch food off my plate using his fork and tries to feed me food from his plate too. He watches with great interest as we eat and tries to mimic our actions by smacking his lips together and exclaiming FINISHED when he’s done.
As much as I loved our high chair, I am kind of glad that period of our life is done and dusted and we are moving onto the next level. Mealtimes suddenly feel more intimate and we feel more together as a family.
If you are looking for a booster seat then I highly recommend this Nuby Travel Booster which is not only great for home but for anywhere you might go, whether that’s Nanna’s house or Pizza Hut!
