If you couldn’t tell by my two cooking shows and my snap show, “The Hautemommie EATS” – food is a major part of my life. That said, I never wanted my love of eating out to end simply because I am a mother. I have heard the stories from other parents who said they haven’t had or enjoyed a meal out in ages. To them I say, “I get it, but…not really.” The one thing that has saved my restaurant touring has been – a hook on highchair.
I never wanted my love of eating out to end simply because I am a mother.
After a few dinners where my youngest princess tried to climb out of the restaurant provided highchair I knew there had to be a better alternative. Now I didn’t discover these chairs alone, I’ve seen them used by others but I was a tad nervous by the notion of a “floating baby.” My anxiety had me thinking my child would come tumbling down dinner and all, while I was enjoying my steak. I have since moved on – praise God. The wonderful folks over at Phil + Ted’s awesome hook on highchair, The Lobster, has made going out to eat a pleasure to do with my baby.
It comes in two colors – red and black, which are appreciated because as a fashionable mother it is quite frustrating trying to find stylish, minimalistic, and neutral colored baby products. I’ve only owned my lobster for a few short weeks and already it has been such a lifesaver. Now, rather than a germy, sticky, wooden highchair that I blanket with my shopping cart cover, Baby C can join us at the table where she can also feel a part of the meal. I also think it offers a valuable lesson by teaching her how to sit down and eat at a table early in life, which is a huge part of my family.
I’ve put together a list of hook on highchairs on the market that range in price, color, and ease of use. The lobster hooks on to any table with it’s screw on arms and tightens tautly and safely. It comes with a tray to put food on as well so your bambino can enjoy their meals table side too. Phil+ Ted definitely hooked it up with this one. No pun intended. Take a look at my choices below!
