WFMW: Best Booster Seat Ever

 Before I had Bean, I was completely overwhelmed with how much baby equipment existed out there.  Being completely obsessed with knowing as much as I could about any one topic, I spent hours researching what the best would be for the best price.

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.


  1. I can put the WHOLE THING in the dishwasher? Have you done this? (or do you just mean the trays???)I guess I'm just wondering if it will fit :)
    It would be nice to not have to scrub of the drips down the side. I guess it would be nice to put my table and chairs in the dishwasher too...

  2. 1. When Hannah came along we ditched the regular high chair all together and just used the booster. SPACE SAVER!

    2. I'm SO glad my kitchen floor is clean in that picture.

    3. Great post.

    4. I regularly put the entire thing in the dishwasher. Just clip the straps so they don't get tangled in any moving parts below.

  3. hello?! why didn't you tell me this before?!


    oh well, too late now... maybe next time.

  4. I will be putting mine in the dishwasher today! I had no idea you could do that. Thanks@

  5. I was about to start researching boosters - thanks for saving me some time!!

  6. I love this booster seat too! I have two of them. My bigger guy no longer uses the tray, just sits at the table with it. I discovered that the tray fits perfectly in his car seat for when we pick up drive-through or are on a road trip.

  7. I have one of these to and love it. It is definitely the way to go. C feels like he's sitting at the table with us vs. being in some weirdo highchair that takes up tons of space in the kitchen (that I don't have to spare).
