I hadn’t realised until recently how much time we spend sitting at our dining room table. So being able to have Sully, our newborn at the table with us has been fantastic.
There are some baby necessities you just can’t predict needing but I guarantee that for anyone with an older child, especially of school age, this is just invaluable.
We’ve been using the Stokke Tripp Trapp highchair with the added newborn set since Sully was born. He used to sleep in it and now he sits with us while we have breakfast, lunch, do homework, play board games and watch silly videos on the iPad. He’s always a part of everything we do which I love.
The whole Stokke philosophy is based around connection – The Xplory pushchair has a high seat which faces you on eye level and without getting overly slushy, it really is amazing how much more involved you are with your baby on a daily basis when you can push them around and communicating with them. Even if it is just ridiculous cooing faces in those early months.
We’ve just started weaning Sully and the newborn seat is perfect for that too. It’s comfortable for a small baby yet upright enough for feeding. We’ll shortly move to the baby set having used one at Barefoot Books today and realising that he’s big enough to sit in it.
The Stokke Tripp Trapp is an investment – you can use it from birth right up to adult by moving through the newborn set, baby set and then just using the wooden chair and moving the slats down.
I really can’t recommend this highly enough. Of all the products I’ve ever bought or reviewed as a parent, this is just a huge must have. I absolutely love it and love having Sully sitting right with me. I’m looking forward to seeing him grow up with it.
