Has the Stokke Tripp Trapp made your life easier?
We love our Stokke Tripp Trapp and Newborn Set! At four months old, Zygi still doesn’t have great neck control and the angle of the insert is perfect. He’s comfortably reclined but upright enough for us to discuss itsy-bitsy spider at great length whilst making silly faces at each other. Many mums with newborns don’t even think about putting their baby in a highchair until they are eating solids and sitting up on their own – but dining tables aren’t just for eating – we spend time there on our laptops, doing work, reading, and having conversations. With an infant, you spend a lot of time on a play mat, so the chair gives us a welcome break and brings Zygi into the action in a way other chairs do not.
Tell us about your experiences using the Stokke Tripp Trapp…
Being an IKEA allen key survivor, the Stokke Tripp Trapp flat pack box sent alarm bells, however it was super easy and quick to assemble. We don’t need to store it away as it’s beautiful enough to be part of our table set-up. The cover of the infant insert is removable and really easy to clean, and there are no difficult-to-clean nooks and crannies on the chair itself. It’s been a pleasure and easy to use.
What does Zygi think of the Stokke Tripp Trapp? Is he comfortable and happy?
He took ages to adjust to baby carriers, so I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly he took to the chair. He loves being at the table with us – this is hard to do with an infant, so the Tripp Trapp makes this easy.
Do you think you’ll keep using the Stokke Tripp Trapp through the years as your child grows?
Yes. I chose the Grey Haze colour as his room will be mostly grey tones – it’s an elegant neutral colour. The adjustable seat and footrest make it such a worthwhile investment, and its modern design is timeless. The infant stage is so short, so I love that the Tripp Trapp can grow with him and be part of his childhood history.
