    Yes I have bumbos and will start with those I think. The height for feeding worried me though (for my comfort, not theirs!) and putting two on the bench wouldn't be safe enough. 10 months is good for bumbos, I wasn't sure mine would get much use out of them.

    Yes this. Forgot this. I bought a snug. It's by mama's and papa s brand. The insert in them comes out add they grow so you can use longer than the bumbo. I also put mine on the bench sometimes. They're around $80-$100

    I use the fisher price booster which you put on a chair ( only suitable when they don't need head support). I got it from eBay. They are not very comfy (just hard plastic) so I just use it for dd to join us at the table.
    I have a fisher price love u zoo high chair but whilst it was comfy it far too big and cumbersome, I really wasted my money. I left it at the inlaws.
    You can get basically identical booster chair to the one I am using by safety 1st from big w/kmart for less.

    I have a bumbo with a tray which was best before DS could hold his back well. Now at 5.5 months he's started the rigid-straight-body thing that pretty much makes baby pop out of the seat so I'll have to stop using it soon.

    I also have an Early Years booster that straps onto a dining chair. I love it cos I hate how much room high chairs take up. I've only just started using it now he can hold his back well.

    If you're spoon feeding you can also use a pram to sit them in to feed until they have the back strength for an upright chair.

    You can get seats pretty much the same as the ikea ones from target for around $50 and they have a footrest. My parents bought one for their house it was fine. We have the child care padded reclinable one from target and it's so so hard to clean!
