For babies who lunch.
Totseat–the washable, squashable high chair–has shipped Little Brim Baby a chair in the new Seaside blue print as a giveaway for our readers! Which is great news for you, because this is quickly gaining speed as one of our new favorite items.
Totseat generously sent us a seat to review for our travels and we have recently used it several more times while out and about. We greatly prefer this chair over restaurant highchairs for a few reasons:
*it’s sanitary (or as sanitary as you left it)
*It does a better job of holding a younger infant upright
*it does a better job of containing a younger infant
Totseat states that the chair “must be used responsibly and on an appropriate stable chair, on level ground. A child in a Totseat should NEVER be left unattended.” Common sense. It should also be used only for babies who are eight months and older, as they are stronger sitters than in earlier months.
We tested this out right at the eight-month mark with Little Brim on our home dining room chairs and he was supported well enough. Our chairs are tricky in that they are extremely heavy and the cushions are not secure, so we have only used this out for family dinners or at restaurants.
Using the Totseat in a restaurant, at home, and at a family cookout on a patio chair.
He has spent more time content at dinner while dining out while using the Totseat versus sitting in the highchair. We think this is because the Totseat allows him more freedom to move, to play with his feet, and holds his upper body better so he is not able to try and launch himself out of his chair. Anything that helps him sit peacefully with us while in a restaurant is worth the price!
PROS: Convenient, portable, easy to use once figured out, and helps us enjoy dining out longer than in a restaurant high chair.
CONS: I had a hard time figuring out how to use this initially. There is a video on their website which is helpful, but once we adjusted everything it made it much easier for repeat uses.
BOTTOM LINE: Worth it! The cost is steeper, since it is shipped from overseas, but so far it has been a great product for us for the past two months. Our son is still young though, and perhaps older babies would fare better in a restaurant chair, so we will keep you posted as he grows. But for right now, at eight months and on, I definitely recommend it!
Little Brim approves, thumbs up!
