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.

Because I breastfed for almost a year, we never really had the need for a bottle drier as we used so few bottles. However, I know how important they can be to some families. I really like the Tulip Bottle Drier by Vice Versa. It's a neat looking design and is compact, lightweight, and has a drip tray that catches the water runoff.

When we still fed Andy from a jar, he loved to knock it over. I had to either hold it continuously or place it on the table. I like for him to feel and explore so I always felt bad about this. But I really didn't want to clean up after he would inevitably dump its contents on the floor. The Jar Holder and Bendi Spoon would have been perfect. The suction pad will stay attached to any non-porous surface, and the Bendi Spoon will reach the crevices of the baby food jars easily. It's also dishwasher and microwave save too!

Every now and then a great new gadget comes out and you wonder just how you lived without it before. Well, for some of us, Days Ago might be just one of those things. Invented by a mother who was frustrated with never knowing how long that baby food has been in the fridge, Days Ago has one simple purpose: count the days and hours as they go by.

Want to get your child more involved in the kitchen? I think its best to teach your kids to love cooking at an early age. What better way to get started than by presenting them with their own set of cooking utensils. The Kids in the Kitchen Set is a set of five 9.5" utensils: round spoon, regular spoon, spatula, rounded spatula, and jumbo fork. They're made from 100% organically grown bamboo, and they're the perfect size for little hands.

Here's a product that everybody needs: My Dwink Box. The creator, a fellow mom, developed this product because she was tired of telling her little ones, "careful, don't squeeze it, don't squeeze it!" Instead, you put your drink box into the holder, poke the straw in and hand it to your child with the assurance that it won't end up everywhere. At least, thats the idea. Clever kids bent on destruction will probably find it pretty easy to extract the juice box to spray all over mom. But it does fit all sizes of juice boxes and pouches, including the extra small ones.

There are new bibs at One Little Monkey that I really like and wanted to share with you all. First is the Out of This World Bib & Burp Cloth Set. This vintage looking print bib is fit for most 6 months to two year old babies and comes with two matching burp clothes. Then there's the Owl Bib Set. The set includes two bibs with a great owl print, and we all know how big owls have been lately! Finally, we like the Baby Animals Bib. These also have a vintage inspired print that we love. All three have snaps instead of velcro, so if your baby likes to pull off his bib these will be great for you.

After seven months of use, our high chair cover is getting kind of gross. There are stains of i-don't-know-what all over. It didn't even occur to me that you could buy a replacement cover until I saw this universal high chair replacement cover at Simple Me Boutique. This stain-resistant cover can be machine washed, and fits almost all brands of high chair. It definitely looks like it would fit our high chair. It is available in chocolate spirodot as seen above as well as natural spirodot and spring circles.
