Abby uses the high chair and Emily the booster. Emily switched to the booster when Abby was ready for the high chair. I love the high chair!! We'll use it for quite awhile longer because it's just so convenient.

High chair here.

Does anyone have booster recommendations? We wont need one until the baby starts solids at about 6 months, but I'm always on the lookout for a good deal in the meantime.

OMG... neither of mine ever did the high chair. I actually just gave away our booster to a pregnant coworker today b/c Sergio hasn't used it in at least a month...

The booster we had and liked was Safety 1st. The tray was hard to snap on and off but we never used the tray. Since starting to eat we just put them in the booster and pulled them up to the table.

Now Sergio just sits on the regular dining chair.

Tegan switched to a booster chair at home this week. She has been in a booster at daycare and at my parents for a while now. We love having her in her booster at the table! So much nicer to have family dinners.

We have this one it is nice because it has the tray if you want it, which we still use and if you are going somewhere with no highchair it folds tiny and snaps on to almost any chair

I like The Disney car one.. So cute! It's also easy to clean..The back folds down so it takes less space when traveling.



They also make a Princess one..

We have the fisher price space saver high chair. I stopped using the tray a few months ago, as it's the perfect height for the table. Since the high chair acts just like a booster, I won't be switching. Heck, Collin and Thomas still fight over it when she isn't at the table with them. She'll stay in it when Collin moves from his stool to a real seat. (don't ask..)

High chair, but ours will also convert to a booster seat. We've tried putting her at the table but she tries grabbing food off of our plates or knocking things (plates, silverware) on the ground. So for now we have it as a high chair with her own tray.

ETA after viewing pictures of the boosters, i guess our high chair is more like a booster. i thought you all meant a booster without a tray. She does use a safety first booster with tray at my parents' house.

What's nice about the boosters, you can put it on a chair and it slides under neath the table.. No bulky high chair and everything matches.
