In Reply to: Clever Fixes For Dining Out With 9-month-olds? posted by Twins Dad on August 16, 2003 at 21:50:12:
: Everyone told us the easy part was over, now that our twin boys have outgrown their car seats. Now that they must use restaurant high chairs, I was hoping someone could offer tips they have come across in their own travels?
: 1) How do we make baby boy B, who's more slender/lighter, more comfy in the spartan restauarnt-issue high chair? he ends up slipping forward, and gets frustrated.
: 2) The other problem we're seeing is with the boys discovering gravity -- that is, letting their toys fall to the floor. Surely someone out there must have a clever solution to prevent that? For example, the plastic letter links they like to play with, I slip one around their overalls strap or something. But most toys don't have holes to loop things through.
: Thanks for any tips! We dont want to have to stop dining out :o(
The only idea I have with the toys is the toys with suction cups on them. Suction it to the table or tray. As far as slipping... dunno what to tell ya. Velcro on the shorts? hehehe... I know we had to STOP going out to eat for about two months, until ds developed more interest in eating food. Otherwise he was a mess and wanted to walk everywhere and do whatever he wanted!
