At first I tried feeding him in my lap, which was a really silly idea. Juggling a spoon and the bowl, plus a bottle of water and a wriggling baby was always going to end in disaster. His little fist clenched on the sweet potato, he waved with joy, and spattered me and everyone else at the picnic with orange. Then I remembered our unloved Bumbo.
This little chair is designed for babies who can’t sit up by themselves – it supports them while they play. Both my children have preferred their bouncy Baby Bjorn, so we’ve not used it much, but it’s perfect for feeding-on-the-go. It’s light, wipeable, and even has a little tray. Now I dread the day he grows out of it, and I have to feed him in the pushchair.
