    Default Toddler dining table booster seat recommendations and advice

    I'm looking at getting ds a booster seat to use at home and when out and about as he is getting frustrated in the high chair and has almost hit the weight limit anyway.

    I had a quick look around and something like the benbat yummigo looks good but I'm concerned the weight limit is too low (my ds is huge for his age). I want something that will last though I'm not sure how much we will need it between 2-3 years of age.

    I do have an idea what I want (ie. No tray, solid, and with a weight limit as high as possible). We already have a Phil & teds lobster but ds is 1kg off the weight limit and it doesn't attach to our dining table anyway. We really need something that attaches to a dining chair.

    Any recommendations?

    Has anyone found a booster useful once they get over 2 years or not?

    Thanks!

    Bumbo and cushee tushee do some - my DS is 8 and still uses his as it just sits on the dining room chair. DD has a bumbo dining seat that you can strap them in to but I can't say I'd recommend it - hers hasn't lasted anywhere as long as the cushee one.

    I will look into cushee tushee. The bumbo one looked good until I read the reviews!

    The bumbo one can slide around a bit if you have odd shaped or shiny chairs but I would still recommend it.

    We just got one from BigW or a Target. My 3yr old is still in it, it has a tray but we don't use it, just push her in at the table so she is with us.

    We've got a Prince Lionheart Bebe Pod. Got it when DS 1 was 18 months. He's now almost 5 and DS2 uses it. He's almost 3 and I reckon still has another 6-9 months in it. He's a big boy, about 18kgs and off the charts for height, with nice, squishy thighs.

    Only problem is the straps aren't removable which makes them a pain to clean. They may have changed the design now though. Still totally worth it.

    ETA: It's supposed to have an attachment that goes on that black bit at the front, just this padded white thing. We somehow lost it....

    Have you considered a kid's chair instead?

    We do have a kids table and chairs but he is too little for them atm.

    We are in a good habit of having family meals so want to keep him at the dining table with us.
