it's changed our mealtimes for the better!
August 4, 2020
My husband and I have been drooling over this chair since our baby was born. Unfortunately, our dining set was counter-height, and therefore not compatible with this chair. So, we went with a set-mounted chair and went about our merry way. But, we never forgot about the Stokke chair. Our baby started eating at 4 months and never looked back! Now she's 12 months and we were starting to realize her current chair/tray combo wouldn't accommodate most suction plates or those ezpz mats, nor would it ever allow her to be pushed up to our existing table. After seeing this aqua blue one on sale, we had what seemed like the millionth discussion about getting this chair, and what to do about our dining set. We ended up ordering the chair, listing our current dining table and chairs online and found the perfect used regular-height table online as well. All that to say, our baby girl has been eating with us AT THE TABLE, using plates and bowls and utensils, and it's been a huge improvement. She sits at the table, so I no longer have to wash her tray three times a day. She's getting used to plates and bowls, and we feel like we're all together. I hadn't anticipated buying the cushion (the aqua blue was only available in the 'complete' version, which included the cushion and tray), but I'm glad I have it and it's very easy to keep clean. The chair is easy to clean and I love that I can adjust it as she grows. Wish we'd had this from day one!
