Bringing Baby to the Table

Jump to Section

It’s baby’s first [second, third, or fourth] Christmas and no matter their age the joy, magic, and wonder of the season awaits. There are stockings to be hung, gifts to be wrapped, a tree to be trimmed, and memories to be made. There is just something special about being surrounded by people that you love, don't you think?  

So whether you are planning for a peaceful potluck-style brunch or a festive feast – it's important to consider the needs of your entire brood, like little ones in your life.

Now, your Aunt Karen may be clueless when it comes to mealtime with a baby [hide the fine china and sharp knives!]  but, you can still be perfectly prepared this season.


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 this season.

Now, bring on the good tidings of comfort [food] and joy – read on for 5 ways to bring baby to the table this season!


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. Learn more about the Stokke Tripp Trapp in THIS Product Review. 


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 this season by adding on the Newborn Set [sold separately]. 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? We know it is tough trying to squeeze everyone in and, if you're in the mood for a Christmas miracle, get this – the Tripp Trapp is more than just a high chair, it can be easily adjusted to fit a 242-pound adult!


AS EZPZ AS 1, 2, 3

An actual copy of every parent's Christmas wish list:
  1. Happy Baby
  2. Happy Mat
  3. Happy Holidays
For your sake, we are hoping that Santa delivers this year! 

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? It's another Christmas miracle!

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 this season, at suppertime, and beyond! We carry dozens of bowls and plates with suction that offer similar features – check them out below.

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.

The holidays are the perfect time to positively reinforce 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?



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

Sometimes spills are inevitable so try to stay lighthearted and just quote Home Alone;

“Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal!”



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.


Whatever brings you happiness. May it be yours this holiday season and throughout the coming year. May the holiday season fill your home with joy and your heart with love.

^^ feel free to steal that toast

Now you are officially Holiday ready – pass the gravy, please!
