Here's a fun chair for your child's room. The chair comes in three parts, and forms two modular seats. The top comes off, and the bottom provides a stable platform as well. I'm not sure what you'd use the middle for, perhaps a small footstool, or a pillow. The chair comes in four different colors (orange, red, green, and blue) and each one is a different monster.

We found our infant seat to be absolutely indispensible when Anderson was just born. It was one of the few places we could put him down and not have him start instantly wailing. The Maclaren Rocker Bouncer seems like a nicer version of what he had. It can convert from a rocker into a stationary chair, and can even fold up for extra portability. The seat is adjustable of course, and the toy bar and canopy are both removable. And what infant seat would be complete without the battery powered "soothing vibration"? The seat is available in coffee / pink as pictured above, and blue.

Here's another really well designed high chair. The Fresco Hi-Chair from Bloom is designed with a baby's entire babyhood in mind. First, it can swivel 360 degrees and has a pneumatically assisted height adjustment that can be set in any position. From 3 months on, you can recline the seat all the way to make a sleeping pod. From 6 months on, you can use it as an infant seat, a play chair, and for feeding. You can also remove the tray and pull your baby right up to the table. And finally, from 2 to 4 years, you can use it as a child's chair. (And by then it's probably time to start all over again!). While $400 is on the expensive side, this well made high chair will last for years, if not generations. The Fresco hi chair is available in Bermuda Blue, Rock Red, Orange Harvest, Rosey Pink, and Frost Grey.

The Nano Highchair is made for urban parents living in tight spaces. This European designed highchair is sleek, small, and stylish. It folds up for easy storage, so it takes up less space between meals. It has an adjustable footrest so the chair will grow with your child. And the micro-leather upholstery will be comfortable for your child and easy to clean. Even if you don't live in a tiny apartment, his chair might be perfect for you!

We wrote about the Coco Rocker in the past. Now you can get it in some snazzy new colors. This high quality infant seat with a clear plexi-glass base is now available in
Bermuda Blue, and
Orange Harvest. We still love the look of this rocker, and the new colors open up the decorating possibilities even more.

Looking for a high chair to match your modern decor? This high chair, designed by Philippe Starck and Maclaren would look great at anybody's dinner table. One of the best features of this high chair — it folds into one of the smallest and lightest profiles available. And at $200, its not much more than an
ordinary Graco high chair.

The Doomoo Seat is a Belgium product that we believe has just been introduced to the US. This seat is firm and snug, is covered with a stretchy and soft material, and comes with two upper layers in different colors. It looks really comfy, and we know that kids love to have their own chairs! Just note that at this point there is no belted harness as they are still pending approval. I think that you can never have too many places for your little one to sit in, and this would be perfect for a little tv watching now and then.

Andy had a very basic bouncer when he was little, and I regretted not buying him one that he'd find more fun. I really like the Sensory Selections Bouncer as it's very interactive. You can customize it to stimulate your baby's sight with an overhead motorized mobile, your baby's hearing with music and sounds, and your baby's sense of touch with the textured toys that your baby can reach. Use just one of these or all three, or move them all out of the way if your baby is overstimulated. It also vibrates and has a machine washable pad.

I've never been particularly enamored with our high chair. If our budget was much larger, I would've loved to consider the Henry IV Convertible High Chair. It's made by the Sirch company in Germany, and includes a table tray, strap, and cushion. One nice feature is that as your child grows, the chair will grow with him — the chair converts to a child's chair. This would be a great chair for any home with a modern decor.

I know this next item, the Rainforest Bouncer, is Fisher-Price, so why would we show you something like this? I can't help it, I wish Andy had something like this when he was a few months younger. It looks like it'd be a lot of fun for a baby. Therefore I can ignore that it's ugly and takes up a ton of room. I have a good friend that used a rain forest theme in her nursery (which I think is an awesome idea), and I think this would be such a good fit. The picture isn't the best, but it's all they had on their site besides personal ones. And I just felt funny putting one of them up here without the parents' permission.
