Mealtimes can be crazy. Sometimes I let my two and a half year old sit like a big boy in a dining room chair like everyone else, but I usually live to regret this decision. The reality is that my son still eats a better meal when he is contained and doesn't have the temptation of constantly moving around. I think everyone enjoys their meal more when this is the case. So if only there was a good looking booster seat that fit my taste as well as provided a safe and comfortable seat for my child...
Summer Infant is dedicated to developing the safest and most innovative products that are designed, developed, crafted, and created with integrity, ingenuity, and safety in mind. They work closely with professionals including pediatricians, child development experts, and lactation consultants to ensure that they are safe and beneficial to the development of your child.
The Bentwood Booster Seat (Dark Stain) is a newly-released modern, child booster seat that is a great high chair alternative. It is lightweight and stylish making it functional and good looking with any home decor. The booster includes a cushioned seat, 3-position recline, and 3-position tray to provide comfort and support for a growing baby.
The Bentwood Booster Seat includes chair straps to secure the booster to a chair both underneath and behind. It also includes a 3-point safety harness that buckles across a child's lap and between their legs to keep them securely in place.
The seat cushion is very thin, however, the soft curve of the wood makes the booster seem comfortable for a child to sit in during a meal. Plus, less padding means that the seat is easier to wipe down. I also like how the padding can easily be taken off and thrown in the washing machine.
My son, Cameron, is nearing two and a half and probably almost outgrown booster seats, but for now, the Bentwood Booster keeps his squiggly body in one place during a snack or a meal.
I love how the Bentwood Booster looks stylish and not out of place with the rest of my home decor. The wooden back and silver plastic base looks great, but is still extremely lightweight and easy to transport. The tray slides on and off easily and has a slick coating making it easy to rinse off after a messy meal. It is also dishwasher safe, BPA free, and phthalate compliant.
Cameron is sitting in the most upright position, but younger toddlers and babies with less neck control would benefit from the reclining option.
The Bentwood Collection also consists of a high chair and a bassinet for those who enjoy this sleek, modern style. Overall, this is a great booster seat with many desirable qualities.
