We choose a wooden frame one, one that would come apart into a small table and chair when she was older, but the table itself was plastic and the seat was that ghastly PVC with foam inside.
We bought it second hand, and to be honest, we were just pleased to be able to get something. I had little knowledge or interest in the landfill then, but it’s probably sitting there now and will remain for the next few hundred years.
I liked the idea of having Little Miss Green on my knee while we ate together, but once the fork had been pushed up my nose a couple of times and my dinner had landed on the floor (much to the cat’s and dog’s delight) we decided a high chair was the way forward.
Well, if I had my time again, I’d definitely be heading over to Totseat
These gorgeous high chair rivals are a sort of sling for a chair! A Totseat adapts to fit chairs of any size, squashes into its own tiny travel pouch and it is completely machine washable. It’s transportable and isn’t going to sit in the landfill for hundreds of years. It sounds like the perfect green solution to me!
These totseats have won heaps of awards including Gold at Global Women Inventors and Innovators Awards. It’s perfect for eating out and eating in and it’s lovely because your babe gets to sit in a grown up chair and feel part of the family.
They come in a range of gorgeous funky fabrics, that will bring a smile to everyone’s face.
Totseats come in reusable packaging – a clear, see through zipper bag that is perfect as a travel wash bag, for bibs, nappies and toothbrushes.
