Review: Nuby Travel Booster Seat

Review: Nuby Travel Booster Seat

Back in 2017, Nuby kindly sent us the Nuby travel booster seat and I created this review as we absolutely loved. Three years on and Dexter has transitioned from this booster seat to sitting at the table and since then we’ve had another baby who is now 18 months old and has been using the Nuby booster seat when we have been out and about since we started weaning at six months. If you’re thinking of purchasing this amazing booster seat, read on for my thoughts- some from back in 2017 when we used it first time around and some from now. 

I’ve been very open about both Dexter and Felix’s weaning journey from baby led weaning to toddler led feeding and it’s been incredible to watch them grow from a tiny babies who could just about stuff a tiny pancake in their mouths to a small children who uses cutlery to feed themselves while sat quietly at their Ikea table and chairs.

With Dexter, we used the high chair less and less until we found that he would eat most meals at home at their 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 travel booster seats and I am in love.

What do we love about the Nuby Travel Booster Seat?

The Nuby 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 introducing the Nuby travel booster seat to Dexter, I noticed that he was more chatty during meal times and much more interactive. He was always trying to pinch food off my plate using his fork and trying 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 was kind of glad that period of our life was done and dusted and we were moving onto the next level. Mealtimes suddenly felt much more intimate and we felt more together as a family.

Using the Nuby Booster seat with a younger baby

Dexter was a toddler when we started using this seat with him, but I was aware it could be used from six months onwards. When we travelled to Spain last summer, Felix was eight months old and we used the Nuby travel booster seat every single day. It is an invaluable tool to take away with you on holiday as it means you never have to worry about finding a highchair when you go out to eat or paying extra to have one in your apartment. 

We also found we ditched the highchair a lot more quickly than we did with Dexter because Felix was much more used to the seat from an early age. Not only is it great for when we eat together as a family, but it’s great for when I want to set up crafts at the table for both boys, such as painting, playing with play-doh or messing around with kinetic sand.

If you are looking for a travel booster seat then I highly recommend this Nuby travel booster seat which is not only great for home but for anywhere you might go, whether that’s Nanna’s house or Pizza Hut!

    This is a great seat. I’m a big fan of seats that make little ones feel part of having dinner with the family!

    That looks fab! I love the design of it and that it’s practical and does the job too. It’s great when they can sit at the table with you, I was so glad to see the back of our high chair!

    What a good idea! We have a travel booster that’s a little like this but doesn’t have as much padding in the base and because of that he’s still a little too small for the table at times! The Nuby one looks perfect though. It’s so nice when they can be a part of things, I swear it makes them grow up in seconds!

    This looks fab, and something I would have much rather used than a high chair when out and about. My daughter loved moving over to a ‘big chair’ hehe

    These booster seats are fab – i had a similar one for my daughter and it meant we could all eat dinner around the table together and like you say, they are not segregated from the rest of the fam! It looks super comfy too!

    We have a very similar one to this that we bought at Christmas when we were going to visit family. He wasn’t the biggest fan at the time but I think I’ll be trying it again because he’s a bit annoyed with his high chair and it would be nice to not need that clunky thing anymore!

    Oh he’s so beautiful! I feel you, I’m excited to get rid of the highchair now if I’m honest, we barely use it anymore. This looks so handy for days out, or even when we pop around to friends / families who don’t have a high chair.

    The NUBY stuff is fab – I’m not surprised this is great as well! We’ve not started looking at Boosters yet but I think we are going to have to soon as H is determined to sit at the table!

  9. 17th February 2018 / 4:36 pm

    Ahh little H – he’s growing so fast! I’ve tried so many amazing Nuby products!

  10. 17th February 2018 / 4:37 pm

    It certainly is! Yup those pesky child free friends!!

  11. 17th February 2018 / 4:38 pm

    Oh they take up so much space don’t they?!

  12. 17th February 2018 / 4:38 pm

    It is very comfy! We used it in Frankie and Benny’s recently and it meant he was really part of the dining experience.

    Toddlers are just so keen to do what everybody else is doing!

  14. 17th February 2018 / 4:39 pm

    Yours looks fab too!

  15. 17th February 2018 / 4:40 pm

    The highchair is just so bulky and taking up essential space!

  16. 17th February 2018 / 4:40 pm

    It’s lovely isn’t it.
