Our daughter is now 10 months old and this is the only high chair we have owned. When she was around four months old we started using it just as a place for her to sit and play with a toy or just watch us. It was a little big for her when we first stared using it so we put a small pillow behind her back. At six months she started eating solid foods and began using the high chair several times a day. It has held up great! At first I was a little skeptical of the design, but it is very safe and sturdy. Having a high chair that just clips onto the table saves space in small homes. And it is easy to take it into a restaurant and clip on the table there too. It is easy to clean- just wipe off the plastic part with a damp rag after feedings and when the cloth is getting dirty just throw it in the washing machine and air dry. This is one of the best baby purchases we made. No complaints. Sturdiness surprisingly very sturdy! Design I love the clip-on design! Space saver and portable. And also nice enough for everyday use.
