Xavier is growing so big, and has long since outgrown his baby highchair. But we've been making do with it because we weren't sure what kind of seat to graduate him to, and also because the cost of special needs seating is extraordinary.
We decided to take the plunge and investigate options, and came up with this wonderful alternative to highchair type seating. Its made of a soft, squishy dense foam material, which is essential for Xavier's bony little body :-). The seat can be tilted at any angle on the base (it has heavy-duty velcro to hold it in place) or it can be detached and then hooked to any regular dining room chair. That means Xavier can sit right up to the table with us, which was an important deciding factor. We love that he's on the same level as the rest of the family, and can tell that he does too.
Here he is, the first time sitting in his new seat, obviously pleased with it!
Checking it out:
Ben had a ball playing with the box it came in...
It frees up both Xavier's hands and arms to play:
And can easily be taken with us when we go out to eat:
