From sensory experience to bond-building with caregivers, so many of the positives of mealtime start with a highchair that provides proper support and comfort. “This can set baby up for lots of great things as they grow,” says pediatric occupational therapist Judy Katz OTR. “Things like accepting new challenges while still feeling safe and comfortable or developing trust in the adults that care for them, providing them with joy and excitement at each meal. There’s also oral-sensory development, feeling new textures, tasting new tastes, using hands to bring food to the mouth, using utensils…it all starts in a comfortable, functional highchair!”
One such highchair all over the influencer-webz is the Stokke Tripp Trapp which promises all the above by way of a comfortable, ergonomic seating position and adjustable design. It’s also got a Scandi aesthetic that’s minimalist and chic look while promising to grow with your child from 6 months to..forever (no seriously, you can change the configuration that completely).
So, does the Stokke Tripp Trapp live up to the hype (and price tag?). We asked Katz to test Tripp Trapp for three months with her toddler granddaughter. Here’s her review.
