A Clean Freak's Nightmare
I wanted to love this highchair, I really did. I liked the reclining options for younger babies, and the fact that the tray completely came off and there was no crossbar still over the child's legs, making them easier to sit down and remove from the chair. BUT: I bought it just about a year ago (Different Pad Cover, but otherwise identical). The pad doesn't fit snugly in the highchair at the corners, so little bits of food ALWAYS get under the pad. There are tiny crevices EVERYWHERE in the plastic that trap small food particles. The pad is not machine washable. The Highchair is not really USABLE without the pad when you know baby is gonna make a mess. After 1 year of use, the pad is ripping and falling apart. The shoulder straps are way too long. The removable tray is too large to fit in a standard dishwasher. For my first baby, I had the classic wooden highchair by eddie bauer that I had given away to another family. It did not recline, or fold, or anything. But the pad was washable / optional and I could keep the thing clean. I would give that one 5 stars!
