Our pediatrician told us we could start Carina on solid food back when she was 4 months old, but we decided not to. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies be exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months, Carina didn't quite seem ready, and hey, I wasn't ready for it yet!
So we're holding out for another couple of weeks. Once we start, we'll break out the giant Fisher-Price Precious Planet High Chair, but in the mean time we're having Carina sit at the table in her Inglesina Table Chair while we eat dinner. She loves to sit and watch us eat. She follows the food from our plate to our mouths. Maybe we're being cruel food-teases, but we really enjoy having her sit with us.
The levers under the arms are completely adjustable, so you can attach the seat to tables of any thickness. We're planning on bringing it with us when we fly to Philly this weekend. It folds up really nicely. We'll probably use it at the airport and at the in-law's house. It's nice and cushy and has a seat belt. Carina loves it, as you can see below.
We have it in the color Teak. We picked this brand (as opposed to others) because it had the best reviews on Amazon for table chairs under $50.
What do you use for baby when you go out to eat and/or travel?
