Joy recently turned 4 months old.
Isn’t she cute!
I was realizing that soon she would be big enough for the exersaucer. I looked around the house and wondered, “Where are we going to put it?” We had the same problem when Faith(3) was a baby. We ended up moving it all the time because it was always in the way. I also wanted something that she could use on the floor, because that is how we do school most days, but still give her some kind of protection from being walked on. I think I found a solution. Summer 3-Stage SuperSeat High Chair
It doesn’t look like much, does it? Looks can be deceiving. Let me tell you why we love it. Even my skeptical, very thrifty husband agreed that it was a good buy.
It is so much smaller than an exersaucer.
When I measured the Activity tray of the exersaucer (the red part) and the activity tray of the SuperSeat (the green part), the SuperSeat was about 5 inches in diameter smaller than the exersaucer. 5 inches doesn’t seem like much, unless you are putting it in a small space. And as you can tell from the picture, the SuperSeat is much shorter, which makes it feel like the room is bigger as well.
When you live in a small house, you have to think very carefully before you decide to buy anything new. Especially furniture. Whatever furniture you have has to do double duty. This seat is nice because we have children in close age ranges. All four of my children can use this. Although I don’t understand why Faith(3) loves it so much.
I was impressed with how well Joy could sit in it using the infant insert. The product description said that babies with head control could sit in it but I was skeptical.
If you can’t tell from the picture, the yellow part is the infant cushion that comes out easily. I chose to have the seat belt part just be in the infant cushion. So when my 3 year old wants to play in it, she just takes out the yellow part.
You can strap this to a chair, but it’s not really meant to be strapped to a chair with the tray on (the back of the chair gets in the way). With a little cheating however, it does work.
My favorite parts:
It works for multiple ages (siblings can enjoy babies chair too)
Can be used for many years-you can use it from 4 months old on (my six year old still fits in it)
Much smaller than other seats or exersaucers
Baby can be on the floor without getting stepped on
Helps little baby sit up very well
Less expensive than most exersaucers
Same price as a Bumbo with more functionality
Things to think about:
Although it does strap into a chair, it does not actually boost a child (make them taller).
The tray is more difficult to turn than I expected. I thought my child would be able to turn it, but only my 6 year old was able to while in the seat.
