Some of the best family memories are made around the dinner table. Good food,   lively conversations, and great company! Thankfully your little ones don't have to miss out on the fun!

Whether you are planning for a peaceful potluck-style brunch, a festive feast, or even just a regular mid-week meal – it's important to consider the needs of your entire brood, like little ones in your life.

How?

Today we are sharing a few of our favourite mealtime essentials. All of these items were chosen with convenience in mind and will allow you to bring baby to the table.


Age-Appropriate Seating

First things first, the baby needs a comfortable seat at the table. If you are looking for a highchair that can grow with your family, we’ve found THE ONE.

Enter the Tripp Trapp Complete!

It comes with a solid beech wood frame, cushion, baby-set with a 5-point harness, a removable tray, and a partridge in a pear tree.

Why we love it? The Tripp Trapp is perfect for baby to use now and can be adjusted to act as additional seating in the years to come. This chair can be used with the tray or simply remove it and nestle the high chair up against your table for when you little is ready to be part of the action. As your little ones grow, simply make an adjustment to the seat and footrest to ensure an ergonomic seating position –their legs should be at a 90-degree angle.

Go Ahead & Accessorize!

Now, let's talk about accessories like the Tripp Trap Newborn Set and convenient storage attachment

Too many parents eat meals with a baby on their lap, so give yourself the gift of  TWO HANDS by adding on the Newborn Set. This convenient attachment cradles your little one and has two adjustable positions allowing baby to have their very own seat at the table – even from day one. 

Do you find that you are always short on seating around the Holidays and big family events? We know it is tough trying to squeeze everyone in, thankfully – the Tripp Trapp is more than just a high chair, it can be easily adjusted to fit a 242-pound adult!

Happy Mats

AS EZPZ AS 1, 2, 3

Babies are messy and the ezpz line has proven to be a lifesaver and table saver. Their products are made using high-quality silicone that suctions directly to the table making them nearly impossible for tiny hands to tip over.

Less stuffing smearing and turkey tossing?

The Happy Mat is a placemat and a plate in one. Bonus that 4 mats can be stacked and carried with food to the kids table in one trip –  #parentinghack

The Tiny Bowl and Mini Mat are packaged in a reusable bag that can easily be stored in your diaper bag to be pulled out at Grandma's house. Plus, each section is portion-controlled in grams which means less overthinking more wine drinking.

You heard it here first, suction will be your BFF, at suppertime, and beyond! We carry dozens of bowls and plates with suction that offer similar features – check them out below.

Manners & Merriment

BABY FRIENDLY CUTLERY

Since we DON’T want baby to poke their eye out with a full-size fork you may want to come prepared with starter utensils or a beginner's cutlery set.

Mealtimes are perfect for positively reinforcing new skills, and what better way to do that than getting your little a special little set of their very own. If your little one is currently in the pincer phase the holidays are a GREAT time to implement a spoon or fork into their mealtime regimen. It’s always impressive to see how easily little hands take to using utensils when they see EVERYONE else doing it.

Want to be the hostess with the most-ess?

Why not have a stash of kid-friendly cutlery on hand for use when you've got lots of little hands?

Never Fully Dressed Without a Bib

PROTECT YOUR SWEATER

You’ve spent time, money, and energy on selecting the CUTEST outfit for baby, so the last thing you need is a stain front and centre. Spit up happens! Keep your little clean with a fun bib.

Dinner time? Don’t forget to pack an age appropriate bib. We love the roll-up bib from OXO Tot that allows you to roll the bib’s fabric into the silicone pocket, and easily tuck it into a diaper bag.

Sip Away

LOOK MA, NO SPILLS!

Are you at the stage where your little one wants to try EVERYTHING that is in your cup?

I mean sure, eggnog LOOKS like breast milk – but no honey, this is Mama’s special drink and it is not. for. you. 

Allow your little one to feel like a BIG KID with their own [plastic] cup like this one, featuring a non-slip grip from ezpz.

Not quite ready to try open cup? No problem!

We carry everything from training cups like this one, or convenient no-spill options like this one shown above from Re-Play. It is made of recycled plastics, and it's clear that Charlotte was OBSESSED with it.

Breaking Bread!

Whether you are planning a big family dinner with all the fixings or just trying to survive a Monday night meal without any meltdowns, we hope these product picks help make bringing your little one to the table a lot more manageable ... after all, mom and dad deserve time to eat and relax too!

Wishing you many years of mess-free mealtimes!
