5 recommended booster seats for your kid
Read about the pros and cons of 5 booster seats used at the dinner table.
We know the little ones are too tiny to sit at the dinner table and eat comfortably without a highchair. To save you the pain of sourcing, we have researched and reviewed — with help from experienced mums and dads — five booster seats that are the best for your precious ones!
Totseat fits on all chairs and secures with a clip as compared to tying like other similar booster seats. Dubbed ‘washable squashable’, it is easy-to-clean and easy-to-pack. It also comes with a handy-carry bag which is perfect for travel! Your little one would sit comfortably and securely during dinnertime.
A small inconvenience is that you might have to prop your kid up with a cushion so he or she doesn’t sit too low at the table.

This is rated the best for being the most compact, as it fits in a pouch and can be brought with you anywhere when you dine with your baby. However, this only works on chairs with a sturdy back. The Gro-Chair Harness is extremely useful if you travel or eat out often and are looking for convenience.
A harness-type booster seat like the Totseat and the Gro-Chair Harness, My Little Seat provides the most security out of the three. It has a five-point harness system that the others do not have. This is good for the wriggling kiddos, or those who are able to sit up but are still fairly unstable. It ensures that they are kept safe at dinner and not topple over.
The fabulous fabric is double-thick, lightweight, and extremely durable– it also comes in many patterns!

Compact and secure, the Inglesina flat table chair can be suspended from a table. We especially love this as the little one can sit close to the table to prevent mess (like food spillage!) and is upright at an appropriate height.
Much like the Inglesina Flat Table Chair, the Mountain Buggy Pod is fastened onto the edge of the table. It is more compact and lighter than the Inglesina (both can be folded), but the back provides less padding for your child.
We would recommend the Inglesina for more support, but the Mountain Buggy for easier portability.
