    Default What do take on holidays instead of a high chair

    We are going away for a week and I am not to sure what to get for our 16 month old who is just over 10 kgs to feed meals in.
    Bumbo is to small now and not too sure what else is out there.
    Can anyone suggest something that i am not totally wasting money on. Is it worth getting a booster seat for a chair or one of those ones you clamp on the side of the table?
    Last time we stayed someone they had a high chair in our room and it was that disgusting I said never again!

    We've got a strap on self-inflating booster that we took on holidays and to cafes etc a lot. I think it's a "first years" brand, i got it at target

    I have a "totseat" got it from hello charlie.com.au. It's $60 but if you sign up to their newsletter you get a 10% off code after a bit.
    It's fabric and you can attach it to most normal chairs. I've been using it for DS since he was 8 months old. It's very handy for people's houses and in restaurants. DS doesn't reach the table in it yet tho so I have to pass him his food.

    I also had a booster seat I brought when dd was about 7 months maybe 8 or 9 she was tiny and didn't fit into a lot of restaurants high chairs so this was perfect and we use to take it with us everywhere it would just sit under her pram. We took it on holidays with us to QLD and left it in the pram basket and folded the pram up. It replaced our high chair at home
    Ours is called handy sit by Danish by design

    little beetle baby chair strap/seatbelt thingy. Size of your palm, it basically attaches the baby to whatever chair you put them in. Worked brilliantly for my kids, although my dd used it at lot longer, my DS liked to make himself and the chair 'jump' - he did that in the bumbo at 5 months though too!

    Default Meal time porta chair

    I have a mealtime porta chair.

    They secure to the table and are really safe and best of all my bub is not exposed to the sometimes questionable hygiene standards of something borrowed and not cleaned properly.

    They are also quite compact so easy to travel with.
    I use mine for visiting friends also.

    I prefer it to a booster seat as it feels safer and keeps my bub at the same height as us on the table.
