The ultimate guide for travel with children from birth to 5 years.

 

The Star Kids Snack n Play travel trayStar Kids Snack & Play Travel Tray

 

Why Shelly recommends it:

 

Sometimes you just need a tray to add to the typical square, tray-less restaurant high chair or to simply convert your stroller (or car seat!) into a dining booster on the go. The Star Kids Snack & Play travel tray may be just the multi-pupose solution you need in your travels. Since it's soft, you can roll or fold it to stuff beneath your stroller, too hands free for the luggage cart, your child's stroller, too.

Brica Fold 'n Go Booster

 

Why Shelly recommends it:

 

I have never seen a dining booster fold this flat. The front and back of the base cleverly fold underneath and the back folds down, leaving the whole seat no more than 1" thick. Add to that: It's as light as your socks! Very easy to travel with in daypack or diaper bag, and slips under the stroller with ease.

Inglesina Fast Hook-On Table Chair

 

Why Shelly recommends it:

 

The Inglesina Fast Deluxe is another very lightweight option, but it features a higher back with some padding for comfort, and it fits thicker tables--up to 3.5" thick. Includes removable washable padding and a three-point safety harness. For children up to 37 lbs. Folds to 14" x 17" x 4". Weighs 4 lbs.

Tip: Hook-on chairs should not be used with glass tabletops, tablecloths, or on table extension leaves.

 

Regalo Easy Diner Hook-on Table Chair for travel with babyRegalo Easy Diner Hook-On Table Chair

 

Why Shelly recommends it:

 

The Easy Diner gets around a wide variety of table ledges (or "skirts") that can be troublesome with many other models of hook-on travel high chairs, and it provides padding from top to bottom for supreme comfort. This hook-on chair also has a higher weight limit than most others (not counting the Me Too), ensuring you will get your money's worth from longer use. What's more, it offers a 5-point safety harness that converts to a 3-point for the older child. Babies may begin using once they can sit up unassisted, up to 37 lbs. Folds flat for travel with its own carrying case. Weighs 7 lbs.

First Years On the Go portable dining booster for travel--it's inflatableThe First Years On the Go Portable Booster

 

Why Shelly recommends it:

 

It's a truly travel-friendly "booster." The On the Go packs down to only 2" thick, then self-inflates to give a 4" boost to hungry kids on the go (a great alternative to "making due" by dining with your child on your lap). Straps securely to most restaurant chairs with adjustable seat and back straps. Three-point safety harness. Recommended for 12 months to 36 months. Weighs 2 lbs.

Ciao! Baby Travel High Chair

 

Why Shelly recommends it:

 

The Ciao! Baby portable high chair is completely free standing, just what you need when staying with a crowd of relatives who take up all the dining chairs already, or when staying in the campground where everyone wants a comfy chair. It has a wipe-clean vinyl tray with a built-in cup holder, plus a ready “skirt” with leg holes to help keep baby safely put while you buckle the waist belt. Recommended for children 3 months up to 3 years, and stands 32 inches high when folded and in use. Weighs 8 lbs. in travel sack.
