Toddler Dining: Booster Seat Round-Up

Whether you’re short on space and want to ditch the highchair or have a toddler who’s ready to sit at the big table with the family, there’s a great option for you: Booster Seats! Nowadays there are a wide variety of boosters, from cushions that you can throw on top of any old dining chair to ones that strap down and feature removable trays. We’ve rounded up a few great options that will not only save you space, but allow your toddler to safely dine at the table with you.

Booster Seat by Bumbo

Help encourage family dinners and eating together at a young age by utilizing a toddler-friendly booster seat that puts your child at just the right level to enjoy meals, right alongside the family, without being retrained in a high chair. Nothing is more uncool than being stuck in a baby highchair, after all! The Bumbo Booster is the perfect seat to give your kiddo a lift at the table.

The Bumbo Booster is perfect for your growing toddler because it fastens onto any regular chair securely, using a strap that goes both underneath the chair, and along the chair back. It also features a secure three-point safety harness that allows your toddler to be fastened in, but snaps open easily for the toddler on-the-go. The Bumbo Booster is lightweight, and extremely easy to clean- just a simple wipe will do the trick! It’s made of low density foam, and feels very sturdy, as well as comes in three fun colors to choose from!

The Bumbo Booster Seat is ergonomically designed with contours that support your child’s shape. The lightweight design (just 2 lbs!) moves easily with your child, from a playroom to Grandma’s house.

Bumbo also makes it easy to give them business, because proceeds from the sale of every Bumbo product are donated to help children in need in Bumbo’’s hometown of Pretoria, South Africa. Thanks to the support of parents who have made Bumbo a part of their little ones’ biggest moments, Bumbo has given back more than $10 million to help families in need since 2005.

Luv Chicken Booster Cushion

If you’re looking for an easy-to-store booster seat for your older toddler, the Luv Chicken Booster Cushion is the perfect solution. This multi-use cushion not only gets your toddler up to the perfect level for table dining with the whole family, but it makes a comfy seat on the floor and can even be used to relieve your knee pain during bath time!

The Luv Chicken Booster Cushion consists of a cushy foam insert covered in wipeable kid-safe (phthalate-free) coated fabric – available in some of the cutest patterns imaginable! The bottom is covered in a non-slip fabric which allows the cushion to stay put on both wood and fabric covered chairs. No need to strap this one down! And, it’s so lightweight that your toddler can easily carry it around by the attached handle.

Luv Chicken is a small business founded by a Seattle mom of two who saw the need for a comfortable, simple booster seat solution. All Luv Chicken Booster Cushions are made with love in the USA and come in two sizes: Original (15x15x4) and Mini (13x13x3)

Mamas & Papas Baby Bud Booster Seat


Looking for an easy-to-clean, compact booster seat that comes in fun colors? The Mamas & Papas Baby Bud booster seat is perfection, and will add a bit of whimsy to your table with its bright color options. The Baby Bud truly grows with your baby, and is compact enough that you could bring it along to a restaurant, or friend/family member’s home.


The Baby Bud booster seat can be used with babies as young as 6 months old, and accommodates toddlers up to 3 years old. With this wide range of ages, there are many adjustments that can be made to fit a young baby or a toddler – from adjustable non-slip feet on the bottom of the seat to accommodate different heights (both of the child and of the table), to a removable locking tray, to a removable soft seat insert that’s perfect for a smaller baby. Begin using the Baby Bud as soon as your child can sit upright on his or her own, by using the soft seat insert and tray. When your child grows a bit more, you can remove the soft insert and use the main seat and tray, and when your child is ready to eat at the table, use the Baby Bud seat alone with no tray.

You won’t need to worry about washing cloth padding or food getting stuck in tiny crevices with the Baby Bud booster seat (Can we get an amen?), because the surfaces are smooth and simple.

OXO Tot Booster Seat

With the understanding that most parents keep their booster seats in place in the kitchen or dining room, it was important for OXO to come up with a design that was not only functional, but visually pleasing. When it comes to sleek and modern style, the OXO Tot Booster Seat is the way to go. With a wide range of colored cushions and crisp white frame, you are sure to fine the perfect one for you.

The comfortable, yet supportive 3″ cushion will hold up to 70 lbs and will position your kids at an ideal height at the table. With the sturdy backrest and non-skid feet, they can sit in virtually any style chair, allowing them to sit more toward the front of the chair. This will enable their legs to dangle comfortably over the rounded edge of the cushion. One of the best features is the stain resistant and removable cushion, making it a cinch to clean.
