Along with needing two cribs for Simon and baby #3, we also really wanted 2 high chairs since Simon is SUPER squirmy and definitely not ready to transition to any form on booster seat at the table. He needs to be TOTALLY confined otherwise he’ll leave the table 150 times during every meal!
In fact, I often put him in his highchair just to confine him for brief periods during the day (like if I need to go to the bathroom in peace, take something hot out of the oven, etc. etc.) It works marvelously, especially if there is anything fun going on outside!
Our current highchair is very basic (and I love that about it) but there were a couple of features I really wanted to look for in a second highchair — especially since it was going to be used for an infant.
Namely, I wanted our 2nd highchair to be padded (with something that was easily washable), to recline so a small infant could sit up at the table with us without needing to be held, and fold down pretty compactly for easier storage.
I thought this might be a pretty hard list of things to cross off with just one highchair — but after searching for just a short while, I found the Inglesina Gusto Highchair — and quickly realized it met all my requirements with a really reasonable price tag!
Simon apparently likes it (we had to test it out a bit!) so I think the new baby will too!
The Gusto highchair is the newest Inglesina highchair designed to make life easier for moms and dads at meal times. It is extremely easy to open and close to get the child in and out. It has a 4-position height adjustment to make the chair taller or shorter to fit your table (I love this), a reclining seat and an adjustable footrest so you can completely customize the seat to fit your child.
The service tray is dishwasher safe and can be detached from the main tray so that food can be placed on it and then served to the child. The removable tray has been EXTREMELY useful for our mealtimes as Simon’s way of telling us he is finished is to start throwing any leftover food on his tray (yes, it’s annoying). But with the Gusto chair, we can quickly remove the top tray and enjoy the rest of our meal without getting food flung at us 🙂
Oh, and this highchair is SUPER compact when closed. It even has a really cool “hook” on the back to store the tray so it doesn’t stick out when you fold down the rest of the chair. I know I’m not a highchair expert, but I honestly have never seen a full-size highchair fold down as compactly as this one does!
