Christmas Dinner Feeding Essentials for Baby
Whether your little one prefers the Christmas pudding or secretly enjoys the traditional sprout, we’ve got a range of feeding essentials for baby so they can feast festively this season.
Arguably one of the most exciting parts of Christmas Day is the Christmas Dinner. OK, it doesn’t quite have the surprise of presents under the tree or the quiet anticipation of Christmas Eve, but if we’re all being honest with ourselves, whatever the celebration, the first thing on our mind is the food.
And it’s the same for little ones. However exciting the season gets, they’re all lead by their tummies.
Nothing beats a slap-up Christmas lunch; whether you favour a festive bird or prefer to stick to the nut roast. But as your little one starts to get a taste for solids, we thought it would be helpful to pull together a list of essentials to help them get the most out of their merry mealtime.
So that’s what we’ve done. With highchairs, booster seats and a few other essentials, we’ve got your festive feast all wrapped up.
If you’re enjoying a homemade Christmas Dinner this year, then you can enjoy the comforts of your own house as you prepare the big feast. And so, if you’re looking for a highchair that effortlessly fits around your busy kitchen, our Snax Highchair could be just the one.
The compact fold of Snax means, whenever you’re not busy tucking in, you can fold it down and out the way. The upright, freestanding fold means you can slot it next to the fridge or under the stairs until you need it.
Once it’s up and open the Snax is just as versatile. With 6 height positions and 3 recline settings, you can adjust the seat until your little one is comfortably settled at the dinner table. It’s a comfy padded seat that easy to wipe down and perfect for those long, lingering lunches.
There’s all that, plus a removable tray for easy cleaning and a storage basket for any extra essentials you need. And it’s all finished off in a stylish design that won’t stick out like a sore thumb in your home.
Feeding Essentials for Baby | Baby Bud Booster Seat
If you’re getting away for the Christmas period, either to friends and family or somewhere a little more intimate, the last thing you need is to be lugging round a massive highchair. That’s where our Baby Bud Booster Seat comes into it’s own.
The light, compact, portable seat is ideal for eating out or at a relative’s. A great way to bring your little one closer at mealtimes, you can attach the Baby Bud to any dining chair using the handy straps. And the non-slip feet and safety harness means they’ll be safe and secure at all times.
The padded seat insert will keep them nice and comfortable as they chew away on their carrots and parsnips, keeping them in place so they can learn to embrace a little independence at mealtimes. As they grow, simply lift out the insert to create more space.
And with a lockable tray, you can make sure their dinner stays on the plate (or somewhere nearby) and not on the floor. And we’ve even got your post-meal clean down sorted, as the Bud’s curved design makes it easy to wipe clean.
Universal Highchair Activity Tray
Let’s be honest, despite the best laid plans, the spread sheets and timetables, getting your Christmas dinner sorted on time (and ideally before it turns a fetching shade of charcoal) is tricky. And with a little one around, the pressure to stick to time can feel immense.
But if you can keep your little one occupied, then that’s half the battle. And thankfully, we can help with that. Our Universal Highchair Activity Tray is sure to keep children (and some adults, let’s face it) entertained for hours while you plate up your starters.
With a range of interactive toys to push, pull, bend and twist, they’ll have so much fun discovering each new feature. And what’s more, they’re all fixed securely to the tray, so you won’t be chasing after them as they go flying.
Compatible with lots of highchairs, you can secure the tray with the handy suction cups. it’s a great way to keep them occupied while you get on with the Christmas dinner.
Feeding Essentials for Baby | Tommee Tippee Steamer/Food Blender
If you baby is starting to brave the big wide world of solid foods, then it’s always a big concern to create healthy and nutritious foods for them. But at Christmas, when there’s so much to do, finding the time can be tough.
Thanks to the automatic timer setting, you can simply place your ingredients inside, set it off and get on with other things. The Steamer setting gently steams the food, preserving all the nutrients and flavour, before switching to the blender setting, which blends the food to a texture setting of your choice.
There’s no switching between parts or transferring the food from one compartment to other, it goes from raw food to ready to eat in no time. And the limited number of working parts makes it even easier to clean the Tommee Tippee Steamer Blender after using it.
Because no little one, however careful they can, can go a whole meal without spilling a little something down their front.
But worry not, our Christmas Bibs are here. Available in a set of two so you always have a spare, they’ve super soft so they won’t rub against baby’s skin, and the towelling back adds an additional layer of comfort for your little one.
Displaying two festive designs, a Fair Isle print and a jolly Santa Clause illustration, these Bibs are an essential item at mealtimes and a great way to keep the seasonal spirit going even when you’re sponging up pureed sprouts.
