Nothing says baby’s first meal like a messy, toothless grin of mush.
The only thing neat about it may be the high chair.
Mutsy’s latest entry in the battle against clutter is Easygrow Next. With a brushed-aluminum frame and sueded plastic seat, it’s a high chair that will appeal to your prebaby design sensibilities.
A tilting dinner tray makes popping baby in and out a cinch. A flexible seat reducer helps first feeders (ages 4 to 6 months) stay snug and secure. The adjustable seat and footrest grow with your hungry monkey until he’s sitting at the table beside you.
And — oh, joyous thought! — wiping his own face.
