High chairs: Compare features & prices Totseat Totseat review

The Totseat Tot Seat is a fabric chair harness that converts dining chairs of all shapes into a high chair - it's suitable for babies who can sit up unaided (six to eight months) up to 30 months. It's lightweight and machine washable, but we put it to the test for safety and ease of use too.
