High chair

We are in the process of finding Samuel a high chair. unfortunately all the ones you can get on the high street offer him no support, so his occupational therapist referred him to be assessed for a special high chair that can meet his needs.

We’ve looked at three high chairs and all have wheels so Samuel can be easily moved from room to room and they are hydraulic, so we can move him up or down to different heights and sit him up forward or put him in a reclined position.

The chairs we’ve looked at are:

Xpanda:

If we were to choose this chair, foot straps would be added and wedges to the tray to keep Samuel's arms in and to stop them from flopping down

Squiggle:

If we were to choose this chair wedges would be added to the tray to keep Samuel's arms in and to stop them from flopping down

Bee:

We haven’t made a decision yet as to which one we will go for, but it is likely to be between the Squiggle and the Bee. The deciding factor (apart from cost of course) will be what we decide would be more appropriate for his neck/head support.

Watch this space.

  1. He sits so nicely in the Squiggle but the Bee is very cute! It’s great you’ve got the problem of choosing between two!

  2. I always found it a great moment when any of my children could sit in a high chair. Felt like they could join in with me and OH so much more and made life a great deal easier. Exciting moment for you and Samuel.
