As much as I like the weaning table and child-size chairs, I have always used a high-chair for both my children.
I was lucky to be introduced to the Stokke trip-trap highchair from the onset. I scored one second-hand and we kept it until my second child was 4 years old when we switched to a Junior chair.
I consider the Stokke high-chair Montessori friendly as it promotes maximum independence for the child. You can use it when your child is not yet able to climb in and out of it as you have an infant insert. When my children were babies, I used to have them on my laps at dinner time. It was not an easy solution to eat with them. But they were curious about the food in my plate, they needed physical contact and most of the time, they wanted to be breastfed while I was eating. We also used to take turn with my husband, one eating while the other had our child on their laps. That arrangement is not for everyone but it worked for us.
Now when your child is a walker, you can adopt a Montessori friendly high-chair.
They are numerous advantages of using this type of high chair:
Let me share the options I found here in the UK.
1 Stokke tripp trapp - £189
2 Stokke steps - £189
3 Hauck highchair - £59.99
4 Timba adjustable high chair - £79.99
7 Kinderkraft Highchair - £64.90
Do you have a Montessori friendly high chair? Or do you use a regular high chair. Maybe you use a weaning table and child-size chair?
