I don’t know if it’s a second child thing or Annie is just a complete adventurer but she is a magnet to danger!
Annie can work her way out of most highchairs, I actually don’t know how as everytime she is strapped in but recently I walked into the utility room for 2 minutes and came out with her about to literally jump out of a highchair!
I had the perfect opportunity then to try the Stokke steps and jumped at the chance. I love the brand and the Scandinavian, simple and modern design. Yes I know the number 1 priority is child safety but it is definitely a bonus if baby products can complement the decor of your house too.
What I love about this highchair is, like the Stokke Tripp trapp it can grow with your baby or as Stokke says ‘Like parent and child each part of Stokke Steps is made for each other.’
The Stokke Steps can hold the bouncer seat for the newborn days and has a cradling action that mimics the mothers arms so that your little one can join you at the table, whilst being slightly rocked (perfect for getting to eat your dinner HOT) then you can add a child seat and tray for when they begin to explore food. The baby seat is added in one simple click and we would regularly take the baby seat on and off to turn the Stokke Steps into a chair.
The chair is perfect to easily climb using the footrest and they can sit up high at the table while the curved backrest gives support and protection. Bella loves being able to easily join us at the table now and I would regularly find her taking her toys and climbing up to the table to play (out of reach of a baby sister!)
I have been lucky to be able to try this chair out with both Bella and Annie and they both love it. I regularly pop the baby seat on and off depending on who is using it that day.
The chair would be at the higher price end (prices start at £169) but I honestly believe this is worth it especially if using from the baby is newborn or just beginning to wean, I can confidently say that this seat will be sitting at our table for the next 5 years and with the sleek style we won’t be in any rush to remove it.
Stokke steps will match any modern interior as you can design it to fit perfectly with your home, from the wood to the textile colour range.
