Less is more!
For today's blog post I thought I'd share my experience with high chairs and why I believe less is more. As a mother to three kids, I've owned multiple high chairs in various styles and brands. I've also known plenty of other parents and have seen their high chairs and have heard about their experiences.
So what's this about? What have I learned? Well what I have learned is that the simpler the high chair the better. We all know that feeding time happens multiple times a day, plus there are snack times, plus there are times when you put baby in the high chair while you do the dishes or mop the floor. High chairs get used a lot!
What I've seen is that there are high chairs that essentially look like huge car seats up on a stand . They have padding, and even their padding has padding. There are snaps, belts buckles, sliding locks, tray adjustments and toys. The more fancy gadgets and padding you have the more you have to clean. The more you forget to clean. The more bacteria and other funkiness has a chance to build up.
Food and germs get trapped in all those fancy cracks and crevaces, under seat cushions and many places where they have the perfect opportunity to breed. I've read about people's high chairs attracting bugs and who knows what else.
My advice is to keep it simple. After all, the point of a high chair is not to make it so fancy and so comfortable that baby will spend all day in it just because they're content.
Keekaroo makes awesomely simple, easy to clean, easy to use and very easy to store high chairs. They won't take up their own 10x10 space in your dining room, they fit nicely and look nice.
