Transition from a High Chair to a Nuby Booster Seat with Ease (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views I share are mine and mine alone.


You know your "baby" is not a baby anymore when they are finally able to sit up unsupported, and then begin to take their first steps.  I don't know what happened with Arabella, our youngest.  One minute she was a baby, and the next she was rushing to catch up to her big sister, who is 15 months older than year.   Arabella began walking at 9 months and is already talking alongside Savannah at 17 months.  Oh, where did the time go?  I sure do miss cradling the girls in my arms, as I fed them their bottles.  Now, I put them in their booster seats, and they feed themselves their meals with utensils.

As part of the Nuby Mommy Blogger program, I was sent their Nûby™ Booster Seat to review.  I had planned to switch out Arabella's high chair to a booster seat, as she now ready for one -- way faster than I had planned. :-(  But, before I could fasten the booster seat to the dining room chair, the girls had fun test driving it in the living room.  

I asked Savannah what she thought of the Nûby™ Booster Seat, and she said it was "comfy."  I was able to see how durable and sturdy it was when the girls decided to lean back, in hopes of tipping it over.  To their surprise (and mine) it stayed put on the living room carpet.  And, when I finally switched out the old high chair with the new Nûby™ Booster Seat, I couldn't wait to see what Arabella thought of it.  It took a little getting used to, as she is used to having a tray in front of her.  But, with the Nûby™ Booster Seat, you simply push the booster seat right up to the table and have your child eat from the table.  When Savannah saw this, she got jealous, as she was still using a booster seat with a tray on.  So, like many other Nuby products we have a chance to try out, I ended up picking up another one, so that they would each have one and wouldn't fight.

Now when I walk into the dining room, I find myself looking for the missing high chairs, which always took up a lot of space and made it difficult to walk around the table.  With the Nûby™ Booster Seat, I am able to push the chairs under the table, without having to remove the booster seat, which I love.  Even though I know the girls are loving their new Nûby™ Booster Seats, I am missing their high chairs a little, as it means they are no longer little. :-(  

Have you made the switch to a booster seat yet for dining?  If you are about you and want to know a good booster seat to try, why not consider the Nûby™ Booster Seat?  This booster safe is not only stylish (as it comes in colors for both boys and girls), but it is safe, durable, sturdy and comfortable -- everything you look for in a booster seat.  And, the straps are so easy to attach the chair.  No more having to get down on the floor to try and fasten and attach. :-)  This booster seat holds a child up to 65 pounds, which is great, as you will have this booster seat for a long time. 

You may even want to pick up a spare to leave at Grandma's house.  I found having this booster seat available for visits to Nana and Papa's, made feeding the girls so much easier, as they were used to the booster seats. And, when the girls weren't there, my parents could store away the booster seats, without taking up too much closet space.  


The Nûby™ Booster Seat can be found for only $19.95.  You can choose from pink, blue or green.

  1. i never used a booster when i was her age. since i was really small, i used a highchair until i was about three, and then i used a stokke tripp trapp until i was about ten (in little-kid mode because as i said, i was small and had a tiny torso). after that i used nothing, because the stokke tripp was taken away by a younger child who needed it more. but i found myself, a year later, making a booster seat to use in the car (it was still too low, so--) and at my seat to do stuff at the computer. that booster looks really nice though :-D
