Holiday Gift Guide 2013: Mamas & Papas Baby Bud Booster Seat {Review}

Posted by Jenna | Monday, December 16, 2013

**The product for this review was provided by Mamas & Papas. All opinions are my own.

If you've been a follower here for a while, you know that I'm a big fan of Mamas & Papas. We have owned several of their products over the years and are always impressed with the quality and overall appeal for both child and parent. 

If you aren't familiar with this great company, here's a bit about them:

Founded in 1981 by UK's first female entrepreneurs Lisa Scacchetti, Mamas & Papas is a brand built on a passion for style, quality and innovation. Luisa's vision is one the company still holds on to today, that "Every product and collection in our range must not only look good, but also add simplicity and assurance to a parent's daily routine. We are about sophistication, yet simple, solutions, with unprecedented attention to detail in everything we do".

I have found that this family owned business is committed to giving parents the very best in stylish and practical baby products. That's why, when the time came to look for the perfect booster seat for Caysen, I turned to Mamas & Papas and was thrilled when asked to review their Baby Bud Booster Seat!


  • 3 stage seat that grows with baby
  • Easily fits most chairs securely so you can boost your little one up to almost any table
  • Provides added comfort and support for baby with removable soft seat insert and 3 position removable tray
  • Easy to wipe clean with no crevices to trap food and crumbs
  • Non slip feet and 2 chair harness give extra safety and stability
  • Designed for children ages 6m-3y
We've owned a few different booster seats in the past, but over the years they have begun to show wear, and quite honestly, have been more difficult to keep clean than I had hoped. That's why I was excited to try out the Mamas & Papas and hopeful it would be more convenient for this busy mama. 

When the booster seat arrived, I was eager to check it out. Out of the box I was very impressed with the quality right away. As always, Mamas & Papas did not disappoint. I can tell this is something that will hold up well which I appreciate, since it's used multiple times a day!

The Baby Bud Booster Seat is available in three different colors. We were sent teal which I absolutely love! It's a very nice color and great whether a boy is using it or a girl! 

Given its great color, I was instantly drawn to the removable soft seat insert. This is very soft and and made to be comfortable for the child who is sitting in it. It's also made to be easy to clean. YAY!

This insert is designed to be used through stage two (which is approximately 12 months old). It's part of the grow-with-me feature that I love about this product! For those with a baby, you know that you'll be able to get a lot of use out of this chair without having to go through a high chair and then a booster separately. 

Stage one uses the insert as well, but also the three position removable tray which makes it more like a high chair. This is great for children ages 6m to 12m who are just starting to eat table foods and meals with the family. 

The tray is very easy to get on and off. There's even a lock and unlock lever which ensures that it's securely in place.

Once the child is a little bigger, the tray can be removed so they can move right up to the table with the rest of the family. 

For children who are 12m-3y, this booster seat can still be used, but without the insert since the child is bigger. This is the way we use it with Caysen and LOVE it! It fits him well and is VERY easy to clean (one of the priorities for me when it comes to a booster seat of any kind).  

One thing I really like is that the straps are darker in color, not white. We have had other booster seats with white straps and they never stay white for long. I appreciate this a lot about the Baby Bud! 

When used up to the table, it doesn't matter if your child is 1 year or 3 years, it is adjustable to suit your babies size/height just right. There are four adjustable non slip feet which makes it possible to get the child to the right height. I've never had a booster seat where the height was adjustable, so I really appreciate this feature as well! 

Of course, safety is also a top priority when it comes to baby gear, which is why I'm thankful for the non slip feet, 2 chair harness and safety belt. The feet and the chair straps give the booster seat extra safety and stability, while the safety belt keeps Caysen sitting and safe while eating.

We have really been loving the Baby Bud Booster Seat and use it a lot at home. It's also perfect for on the go! We go to many homes where they don't have an extra booster seat, so we just take ours along with us. This one is lightweight and even has a handy carry handle for portability! 

Overall we've been thrilled! The quality of the Baby Bud Booster Seat is top-notch and its many features make it convenient and perfect for both mom and baby. It's definitely a mommy must-have in my opinion and would make a great gift idea as well! 

Buy It: You can purchase the Baby Bud Booster Seat from Mamas & Papas for $69.99.
