Anyone who knows me knows that I love Fisher-Price products because they grow with your child. So when I started looking for a high chair, I started looking at the Fisher-Price models. But then I saw the Graco Blossom 4-in-1 Seating System and I was sold.
- This high chair can be configured 4 different ways to suit your needs throughout your child’s growth: high chair, infant feeding booster seat, toddler booster seat and youth chair.
- Ability to use the chair to seat 2 children at the same time. For example, a toddler in the youth chair (utilizing the removable seat back and harness) and a baby in the infant feeding booster seat (attached to a chair).
- Two feeding trays grow with your child. A smaller tray for beginning eaters and a larger tray with a removable top for bigger appetites.
- Infant body support and 3 recline positions help support your baby comfortably while adjusting to solid foods.
- A 5-point harness on the infant seat ensures your child’s safety.
- Four wheels (2 equipped with brakes) make it easy to move the chair around for cleaning up messes, yet easy to keep it in place for your child’s safety.
- 6 height adjustments allow you to position the youth chair to meet your growing child’s needs and it’s easy to adjust by pressing two buttons on either side of the chair and gliding the chair up or down to your desired height.
There are some other features that I found extremely helpful on the Graco Blossom 4-in-1 Seating System:
- One hand removable tray – as we Moms know, 2 hands just aren’t enough. Being able to hold my baby in one arm while removing the tray with the other hand made it much easier to get him seated for meals.
- Dishwasher safe trays – need I say more?
- Adjustable footrest – admittedly, the footrest serves an additional purpose for us. My son is able to use the footrest as a ‘step’ to climb up into his seat for meals. It also makes the seat more comfortable for him and his legs are not dangling.
- Machine washable seat pad and straps – I do put it in a lingerie bag before washing, but it holds up very well to the washing machine.
- Several colors and patterns to choose from to match your home’s color palette.
The fact that this high chair grows with your child is the real selling point for me. It was relatively easy to put together and reassemble whenever I wanted to change the configuration and clean-up is pretty easy too. For my money, the Graco Blossom 4-in-1 Seating System is the way to go. Note that if you have a small seating area, this chair does have a large footprint and doesn’t fold up when not in use.
