Not a fan

I'm not really a fan of tonight's Baby Steals.  There is something about tying your child to their chair that rubs me the wrong way.  I get what they are aiming for in terms of travels but that is why we got a booster seat.

Re: Not a fan

  • Embarrassed I have to admit I have done this with my nephew before, but only as a last resort. We didn't have a highchair at the time, and it was the only way we could keep him from falling out of the chair since he would get too distracted while eating to pay attention. We let him snack sitting in the floor, but other foods were just too messy. I would never buy something like this though, you are right this is what a hc or booster seat is for.
  • My dad used to tie my sister to the chair with a jump rope when she was like 3 or 4 lol. The kid was a jackrabbit.

    I used a bathrobe tie, so atleast it was soft right? lol

  • I get the concept but I would never buy one. However I might use something like it if we had to travel by air. Would be easier than a booster IMO.

  • I wouldnt use it in a restaurant or anything, but some of the commenters are mentioning how helpful it is in hotels, and I can see that. Otherwise they're crawling on the floor (so nasty!!!!) or rolling off the bed.
  • I would like one solely for my grandmother's house. It never fails I always have to feed him when we go there and she holds him while I do it (She's 85) and he's almost too much for her to hold onto!

  • Pink, you know I'm going to tie Parker to the chair with one of my wraps at some point, right?  LOL!

    (As a joke, of course)

  • honestly, not this particular one, but there is a chair tie wrap thing that has a 5 pt harness that we considered getting for Anna. She is sitting up now, but still very wobbly from side to side and would not be stable in a booster seat or high chair. Something like this offers her the chance to sit at the table with her family for dinner, and would allow me and DH the chance to eat without one of us having to hold her and taking turns eating.  Developmentally, she should already be able to sit at the table with us, but because of her delays, she can't if we go out or to someone's house.

    So, whereas this might rub some of you the wrong way, it's extremely beneficial to a family like ours.

    I think this one is COMPLETELY different.  It doesn't look like you are just tying her to a chair.  MUCH nicer IMHO.

    Agreed.

    I think the one i like is nicer too. Especially since I found it for $20 on Amazon with free shipping. Stick out tongue
