There’s so much joy that comes with witnessing your baby’s firsts – whether it’s their first toothless smile, their first crawl, or the first time they sit up. Babies go through plenty of milestones in a span of just a few months, from holding their own bottles to taking their first bite of solid food. In this feature, we round up the ultimate list of dining room essentials you should invest in for your little one – from Scandi-style high-chairs to mess-free plates.
Stylish High-Chair for the Minimal Home
Baby chairs can be chic too.
Made of solid beechwood and PE plastic, the OVO baby chair is a minimalist’s favorite. It includes a removable, washable tray that conveniently holds your baby’s food, and can be rotated towards the seat. The fabric seat pads are an optional purchase, and they come in five vibrant colors that work well with dining spaces. But most importantly, the OVO baby chair shortens into a toddler chair, for when your baby is done with high chairs.
The High Chair That Grows with Your Baby
Inspired by a ladder, this high-chair adjusts as your baby grows.
Designed by Peter Opsvik for Stokke, Tripp Trapp is a modular high chair that features flat wooden seat pieces and a wooden chair frame with ridges that allow for seat height adjustments as your child grows taller. Aside from its modern form, Tripp Trapp also comes in playful colors that look great by the corner of the dining table. You can even get it with a matching harness to keep your baby secured at all times. How’s that for a timeless chair.
A Meal for Two
There’s finally a baby chair for two.
If you’re blessed with twins, the Table for Two solves the worry of having two separate baby seats during meal time. The fabric seat pads come in an array of patterns so you can change them around when you feel like it. There’s a carrying handle, and a bottle holder on each side too, so consider yourself prepared for meal times with the Table for Two.
Easy Peasy Plates
Placemat and plate for the price of one? Yes please.
Never worry about meal time mess again with these EZPZ all-in-one silicon placemat and plate. The silicon conveniently sticks to most table surfaces so you don’t run the risk of babies accidentally pulling their food off the table. But honestly, not having to wash two items is already a great reason to get it.
Baby Bibs for the Fashionable Family
Keep your baby looking dapper despite the mush.
Aptly named Make My Day Baby Bibs, these baby bibs come with a scooped end to catch food during meal times. But it’s not just the functional aspect that makes this baby bib unique, it’s the trendy designs that dress up baby for all kinds of meals – a fruity breakfast or a fine dinner.
