American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win a $300 High Chair from BabyBjorn

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

My niece is fully onto solids. On most Tuesdays I do Facetime with her, and I eat my dinner while my brother spoons food into her mouth. She seems fascinated to watch me eat while being fed herself! 

This week, when she was done, she started to try and dismantle her high chair. The one she is using is portable and not super sturdy. That got me thinking, gear-obsessed editor that I am, about the Baby Bjorn High Chair. It’s sturdy as a rock, great for small spaces, has a comfy shape and footrest to keep a kid sitting, and wipes down quickly. The $300 pricepoint stops a lot of people, but I would maintain that if you watch the video on the product, you can understand why the design and features are worth it.

Don’t be fooled by the fact that it isn’t giant; a baby doesn’t need a big seat (and you don’t want to clean one). This high chair fits a 5-month-old to a 3-year-old, and BabyBjorn is giving it away to ONE lucky winner. (But not to my brother! He’s going to have to pony up.)

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win Svan’s $179 Baby-to-Booster High Chair

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

The highchair aisle has changed in the past few years. The number of just-highchairs has gotten smaller, and the range of seats that morph from infant highchairs to boosters has grown. Seems fair; if you’re going to park a new chair in the kitchen, it should be one that can stay for a few years!

We recently got to preview Svan’s new Baby-to-Booster, and it’s a beauty. Here at the magazine we kind of lust after the old-fashioned wooden chairs, and this chair is birch save for the tray and seat pad. But like a modern chair it folds up, and the footrest adjusts as your kid grows. It’s safety tested for ages 6 months to 5 years, so your baby may just be doing kindergarten homework in it some day!

This week, Svan is offering ONE lucky winner the chance to scoop up a Baby-to-Booster Bentwood High Chair, a $179 value!
