    Default High chair refusal

    My 13 month old has started to refuse to sit in her high chair - she repeatedly stands in her high chair or cries if she can't stand and refuses to eat. How have other parents faced this behaviour? Logically, I think that I need to only feed her when she is sitting in her chair, but she doesn't eat or drink (she doesn't drink much anyway) much if I do this.

    Could you buy a little table and chairs and sit at that with her?

    I am hoping to do this with Dd soon just so I can get rid of the high chair.

    She wants to be a big girl. I suggest a kids booster chair that straps onto the dining room chairs - it worked for our daughter at 1yr old who wouldn't even get in the highchair, she did a plank! Now at 3 she still sits in it with us.

    Time to ditch the high chair. Ikea do fantastic little table and chairs, or you can try a booster seat, or just let her stand on a chair at the table.

    Ds was like this. I tried a different high chair and no difference. He now has his own table (our old wooden coffee table) and a plastic chair, though most of the time he will just stand at his table or sit on a chair at the table with us

    Yes, she wants to be little Miss Independent. I will go to Ikea tomorrow and buy some a child chair, and toddler chair and table to try out. Thanks.
