Mealtimes can get crazy around our house with a toddler. I could only imagine what they would be like with 2 or 3! Leighton has also become quite the picky and messy eater. If she doesn't want something, on the floor it goes to the cleanup crew (our yorkies Spike and Lola.) Shane and I always dreamed of this perfect world where we would all sit down the dinner together. I know, what was I thinking?! The things we say we will and won't do before we are parents are hilarious. We recently started using a new high chair from 4moms, and it definitely helps a little with our rambunctious toddler.
Leighton thinks she can do everything. I mean everything. This chair has some great features though that help her to feel more independent. She is able to climb up the steps herself and sit down. She loves climbing. I love it; it scares Shane to death. = ) She feels so big and independent when she can climb up in her "big girl chair" all by herself. The chair has adjustable heights so you can easily make it shorter or taller depending on the height of your table. We have a pretty tall kitchen table, so we set the chair as high as it will go. It is also nice so I don't have to bend down. Sometimes I even take the tray off and scoot her right up to the table so she feels like she is just sitting in a chair instead of a high chair. She loves that!
The tray on this high chair is magnetized. Yep, I said magnetized. You can easily take it off and put it back on with just one hand. It is so quick and easy to do, and it makes mealtime so much easier. The high chair also comes with this cute little bowl and lid that is...drum roll please...magnetized too. That means Leighton can eat without knocking her bowl of the high chair or throwing it across the room. Mom win.
So far, we are loving this high chair. It's not just about the functionality'; it's also about the design. Shane and I love modern design, and this chair fits that just perfectly. I love the clean white and gray colors along with the sleek and rounded design. It looks just as good sitting in my kitchen as Leighton looks sitting in it.

I'm also excited to share that I have teamed up with 4moms to give away a high chair to one lucky reader so you can see how amazing the design is too. Good luck! What is the hardest thing about mealtime in your household?
