If your child is anything like mine, you know what a struggle meals can be when you’re out with a toddler. At family meals, church potlucks, friend’s houses, or even at a park, my son tries anything to get down from my lap while we’re eating. At home, he’s always strapped into the high chair. But if we’re out and he’s not strapped down, he knows it and will take advantage of it.
That’s why I’ve been looking for months for a portable booster seat I liked. After looking in stores and online, and I finally found the perfect one!
*I am not getting paid for my opinion on this product.
You can read my full disclosure here.*
Let me tell you about the many reasons why I like this one the best.
It folds up and has a handle
I didn’t like some of the plastic ones I found because they would take up a lot of space in the car. They’re just too bulky.
But this one folds up pretty small, so it’s out of the way. And it even has a handle so my son can carry it himself! (He loves to help us carry things.)
It doesn’t hook to the table
I know many friends who have the kind of seat that tightens onto the table with clamps. For some reason I have just always been nervous about that kind.
I like that this booster seat straps right onto the chair. The straps are long enough to fit small chairs AND large chairs. There’s also a strap that goes underneath the chair so it doesn’t fall off.
It has a pad so he’s closer to his food
Since this booster seat doesn’t have a tray, it’s nice that it helps my son sit all the way up at the table.
The pad inside is removable, but I like it so we just leave it in.
It has a pocket for anything you need at mealtime
I usually just keep his bib in this pocket. I’m glad it has a pocket because I normally would forget to pack a bib. But with this, it’s right there whenever we need it!
It can be quickly wiped clean with a warm washcloth
The material it’s made of doesn’t soak up any liquid that gets spilled on it. Because of that, I can easily wipe it off with a warm, wet washcloth.
I am actually sewing a little cover for this seat. It doesn’t need it, but I thought it would be helpful so I can just wash it and keep the seat clean warmer. Plus, I just really like to sew, so why not? I’ll post some pictures of it here when it’s finished.
So there you have it! This is definitely the best booster seat I could find, and it was worth the wait. I love it. Our son loves it. We’re all happy.
If you have this one or love a different one, I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
