Why does baby gear have to take up so much room? There’s the toys, high chairs, pack n play, crib, bouncer, swing, jumper…the list goes on and on! Babies need a lot of stuff! As a minimalist this is really hard for me, especially after I’d gotten rid of all my baby gear when my youngest outgrew it! With a new baby in the house, we had to start all over!
Sadly we had a kitchen that doesn’t really have room for a big high chair. That’s why the Baby Bud Booster Seat was the way to go for us. With my other two I had just purchased the cheapest seat I could find at the time and that was a mistake. You don’t want your baby/toddler to be uncomfortable while they are eating! The hard plastic just wasn’t conducive to an enjoyable eating experience. I didn’t realize how bad it was until I got this one and saw an immediate difference.
First of all, the colored part of the seat is a cushy material that will have baby super comfortable! No more squirming around trying to get comfortable! Now they can focus on the task at hand: eating!
I absolutely love the teal color that we got. It’s perfect for our sweet baby boy and blends well in our home. It is also available in pink if you have a girl or a lime green if you like a bright color! Additionally there is one with an activity tray available. That would be great for keeping baby entertained if they are done eating and you want to keep them on lockdown while you load the dishwasher. I know my son always goes straight for the knives!
I really like that this comes with a removable try. If you want to keep the food more contained you can use the tray.
It slides on easily and you can stop it wherever is comfortable for your baby depending upon their size. Then you just lock it into place by pushing down on the side tabs. There’s even a picture on it to help you out!
I like that it comes with the try because when I go to a Grandparent’s or friends house who doesn’t have children, it’s easy to just bring along. it even has a handle on the back for easy carrying.
Using Without the Tray
The tray is on the small side and probably best for using when you are out and about. For regular meals I like to just have Jax sit right up at the table with us and put his food on the table. Then I don’t have to clean the try and I’m already going to have to clean the table!
Do you notice anything about this picture? You can’t even see the booster which I also like! It’s nice to have him right there at the table with us and then when he’s not in it, there’s not this giant eyesore of a chair.
This one’s super cute anyway and definitely not an eyesore but I still like the kids stuff to not dominate the entire room.
Ease of Use
One thing that seems to be universal among high chairs, boosters, strollers and car seats is that they are a pain to adjust! I have never had a more easy to adjust baby item between all three of my kids and their loads of baby gear! You just pull on the straps to adjust them, without having to simultaneously push a button, pull to one direction while lifting in the other all while standing on your head. Ok that’s a light exaggeration but really, only slight! There’s also a nice little tab to tuck the end in so you don’t have flyaway straps for people to trip on.
Ages and Stages
This booster is good from 6 months to three years so I won’t have to buy him another one! There are four adjustable “feet” on the bottom making it easy to fit to any chair. I’ve already used in two different types of chairs in our home as well as a friends house and I could adjust to fit to all of them.
This seat runs $69.99 but not right now is on sale for $59.99.
We are really happy with the Baby Bud Booster, all it’s features and it’s comfort for Jax. He’s a part of the family so he should be a part of the meals too! This would make a great gift for baby this Christmas!
