If you’ve ever had a baby, you know that baby gear can quickly overtake your house. We started our family in a fairly small house. With just over 1000 square feet for a family of 4 we had to make sure that the baby gear we bought was fairly compact.
Even though we now have almost twice the amount of space we started out in we currently have a tiny space for eating in our kitchen. We’ve never had a full sized high chair for our kids; we’ve only ever been able to fit a space saver type high chair that attaches to a standard kitchen chair. And I kind of like it that way.
Mamas & Papas brings parents and baby the first long term baby seat, Baby Bud! With a lifespan of over three years, this three stage booster seat easily and securely fits most chairs with four independently adjustable non-slip feet and attached straps. A 3-point harness keeps baby comfortable and secure and the adjustable, removable and lockable tray is perfect for eating or play. With 3 distinct stages – Stage one: seat with comfortable molded insert and tray, Stage two: insert removed with tray, and Stage three: insert and tray removed to bring baby to the table – the Baby Bud grows with baby. Easy to clean, the Baby Bud also features a carry handle for portability for use at restaurants or grandma’s house.
Because we do baby-led weaning, or self-feeding, as I like to call it, dinnertime can be a little bit messy. One of my favorite features about the Baby Bud is the ability to remove the soft molded insert, quickly rinse or wipe it over the sink, and easily put it back on again. A removable seat is such a plus for babies who feed themselves!
(Sorry the color in my pictures is off. :/ The seat is teal like the first picture in this post.)
Another thing I love is the locks on the side of the tray, not only can you easily tell when the tray is properly locked into place, it also allows you to easily slide off the tray once you’ve flipped the tabs to the unlocked position.
So far, I have been nothing but pleased with the Baby Bud by Mamas & Papas! It is compact, comfortable, and cute! It is functional, has a streamlined look, and is super simple to use!
Once Baby Z is a little older we will simply remove the tray and scoot him up to the table to eat with us. Eventually, he’ll get too big for the insert and that will be removed so that he can use the Baby Bud as a toddler booster seat. I love that I will be able to use this seat for the next almost 3 years!
Baby Z is pretty happy about that too!
The Baby Bud Booster Seat retails for $69.99 and is available in Teal and Raspberry colors and can be purchased at MamasandPapas.com as well as other retailers in store and online.
