I love that it had an infant recline position for small babies!
There was something so sweet about having this chair for my last child (now 2) and having him be able to "eat" (ie, sit) at the big table with us even though he was a newborn and wasn't having what we were eating. He was still part of us and not in another room...This chair really grew with him, we eventually used it for first solids, baby food, and eventually people food. For us, it had a life of about 20 months. For a first child, I imagine it could be longer.
Pros*Grows with baby
*Great even for a newborn in the recline position
*straps to keep baby in
*easy to clean, for the most part
* can be pulled up to the table, used without the tray
ConsThe cover is clothe and requires machine washing.
