Then I banged my head on my keyboard fifty seven times and ran away.
Fortunately, I have good friends that came to my rescue. My friend Amy sent me a comprehensive list of baby stuff she couldn't live without and baby stuff that she would never buy again if given the chance.
Over the course of Bean's first few years, I made revisions and additions to the list and passed on to other first time moms.
One thing that remained on the list time and time again was the Fisher Price Healthy Care Booster Seat.
Why? Oh, why not! This thing is wonderful!
*At $27.00, it's highly affordable
*It's easy to clean - no weird nooks and crannies. The ENTIRE thing goes into the dishwasher for sanitizing.
*Folds for easy portability. It's light and compact, perfect for the trunk.
*It's not garish and gaudy. The colors aren't crazy and it looks fine in an average kitchen for everyday use.
*The height adjusts easily so that you can fit under the highest and the lowest tables.
*The harness is easy for an adult to buckle, but totally tough for a kid to get out of. (A major boon)
*It's adorable when everyone in your playgroup has one:
(That's only four kids in that pic that have one... at one point we had at least 6 in the room)
I love it. If you didn't gather from the picture, everyone loves it. And for you new moms (and even veteran moms!), hopefully this is one less piece of baby equipment that you have to research to buy.
And that? That works for me. For more WFMW tips, visit Rocks in My Dryer.
