Fischer Price Space Saver High Chair

by Danielle on October 30, 2009

in Baby Gear

We own two of the Fisher-Price Space Saver High Chairs and are madly in love with them! We enjoyed them when our kids were infants and are currently still enjoying them now that they are toddlers. It offers all the amenities of a full-size high chair in a less bulky design. The high chair easily straps to dining room or kitchen chairs with a little effort. We have even used them on our outdoor patio chairs. It’s designed for children from six months to three years, although we are still using ours currently for our 3 year old as a booster seat with no problems and we used them when our kids were babies starting around 4 months old. They loved sitting in them with a bottle or with some toys on the tray to play with. The seat cover is machine washable and comes out looking brand new every time. We have even un-threaded the straps and buckles and washed those also, and they too come back looking brand new. The tray is dish washer safe and the seat can recline into 3 different positions. This compact, convenient, and comfortable seat gives your child a safe place to sit and play or eat. It is neutral in color and it is portable enough to take with you anywhere!

Winterizing Your Baby

With Winter just right around the corner, it’s time to Winterize Your Baby! Since babies are more susceptible to germs and even more affected by cold weather, it’s common sense to spend extra time shielding them from Old Man Winter!

HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH? Although it may be tempting to bundle your baby up like an Eskimo to keep out the cold, too many layers can actually be dangerous. Experts say the general rule of thumb is dressing babies with one more layer than an adult would wear. Using too many blankets can pose a suffocation hazard or for us, we often had our baby with a heat rash because he was too warm!

When it comes to car seats, bulky clothing can compromise the way straps restrain a baby, and blankets draped over the seat can just be annoying and a hassle. They blow away instantly with a gust of wind. Fortunately for us, we had newborn babies in the summer months. However, Winter season still was something we had to deal with and we are now getting ready for baby #3 to make their arrival in the middle of winter! So, we too are preparing for the cold weather. Long Sleeve Onesies are a must for layering. Also, our babies developed eczema from the cold weather, so invest in some good Baby Moisturizing Lotion. The JJ Cole Bundle Me is a fabulous product for car seats! Below are a few items that we found necessary and made life a lot easier, all while keeping our little ones warm and comfy.
