Last time you dined without a high chair, the munchkin totally flipped out. As in, flipped right out of the chair.
If only you’d had a Little Beetle. The clever baby seat for ages 6 months and up slips over almost any chair and fastens around your babe’s legs and torso, keeping rump and rations in place.
The machine-washable fabric folds into a tiny pouch, perfect for toting around town or to Grandma’s house.
Where bottoms up is never acceptable, unless it’s Granny’s scotch.
