I know it sounds a bit nuts, but it seems that someone who actually has children has designed a high chair. It's easy to keep clean - one quick wipe will usually do it - it looks like a work of art, and my baby is comfortable and secure in it.
You know how the old fashioned kind of high chairs are all angular? This one is all flat planes and curves. There aren't any corners. There are no little crevices for food to get stuck it. That's why it's so easy to keep clean.
Now all I have to do to clean the high chair is just take a baby wipe and use one hand to make it sparkling clean. It's amazing - I can hold my baby in one arm and clean her high chair at the same time.
I no longer have to haul my high chair into the back yard in order to hose it down to get it clean. And because there aren't any little crevices I don't need to scrub the corners with an old toothbrush anymore.
Too bad this high chair wasn't around when my first two kids were babies. I can't imagine how much time it would have saved me.
The chair itself, which weighs about forty pounds, looks like it could be in the Museum of Modern Art, it's so sleek and functional. It looks contemporary instead of like it came out of a 1950s sitcom.
Instead of legs there's a pedestal. And because there's a pedestal, I now have a high chair that I can slide smoothly under our dining room table. Now our baby can actually sit at the table with us instead of being an arm's length away from us.
And I love how easy it is to raise and lower the high chair. Its pneumatic lift makes it practically effortless. Because the high chair has 6 urethane casters I can easily glide the chair across my hardwood floors and go in any direction and not have to worry about scratching the floors.
And get this - there's even a waterproof seat pad. I wonder why no one else has ever thought about this before. Now it's not necessary to put the cloth seat into the washing machine after every meal. One wipe and the seat pad is clean. I love this efficiency.
And I can take the five point harness off and wash it as well. Although my child can get quite restless at times, I've never gotten even a little scared because the harness keeps her so secure.
No Love Is Perfect
I guess nothing in life is perfect and there are some things I would change to make this high chair even better. First of all, the outer rim of the tray is exposed. That would be okay, but you have to hand wash the tray because it's not dishwasher safe.
Also you only get two tray liners when you buy it. I'd rather that three or four were included.
