Fantastic chair that really does grow with the kid
November 7, 2022
I received a Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair with newborn set through the Stellar Product Testing Panel, for use with my baby. I actually already had a Tripp Trapp from my daughter, who is now almost 4 years old. So even as I received this one complementarily, I have paid in full for one previously. Which is to say, please trust I mean it when I say the Tripp Trapp is worth the price.
While we already had a Tripp Trapp, this Stellar Panel is our first time with the newborn set, and it came at just the right moment. My son is 4 months old and cleared for light solids. Feeding a young baby is generally a mess--they're sitting on your lap, they're squirming, oatmeal is dripping down their chin and onto the floor. So I've loved that the newborn set makes this process easier. And an easier process with a baby is instantly a more joyous one, as you can focus on the fun part and not on the challenging part. The newborn seat is easy to pop on, is secure once it's on, appears comfy for baby, and looks and feels nice--bringing him right to the table with the rest of the family.
From here, I absolutely *know* I will continue using the Tripp Trapp with him. I know this because we still use our first Tripp Trapp with our daughter, these multiple years later. It has served us well, from those early days with the baby seat and food tray (thank goodness it's so easy to remove and clean that tray!), to the milestone-feeling days where you adjust the seat to reflect your growing child's new height. I love that, at almost 4 years old, she has a chair that's a good size for her. A traditional high chair would be too small physically, and would infantilize her. A dining room chair would be too big; a dining room chair with a booster on it wouldn't be sturdy and wouldn't fully feel like hers. So the Tripp Trapp is really purpose-built to grow with your kid, and it shows.
