Help - I've had a car seat that my 14 month old sits in to watch cbeebies while I have a shower in the morning. He's now getting too big and will be able to tip it soon so want to replace it with something that will keep him safe and happy while I'm in the shower. Any suggestions very gratefully received (can't take him in the bathroom with me and it's nice to have 5 mins to myself!)

Do you need something with straps on or more of a toddler seat?

Ikea do some toddler chairs including the Poang.

I can't think of anything with strap tbh and I used a playpen to keep DS safe whilst I was in the shower.

Thanks - I was hoping to find something like a proper little chair heavy enough not to tip but with straps to keep him in it. Not sure such a thing exists! Will have a look at playpens I think... Thanks for the tip.

Would this be the sort of thing you were thinking of?

I was fortunate enough to have a fairly large bathroom when DS was that age and I was able to just have him in there with me playing on the floor with some toys, but if that hadn't been the case I think I would have gone for Play Pen rather than strapping him into a seat - fine when they are little and used to immobility but won't he get frustrated at not being able to move until you come back?

We have a travel high chair with straps that usually sits on a normal dining room chair, but can equally sit on the floor, and it's very stable. It's a Concord Lima Travel High Chair. It's been brilliant, and it's pretty much the only thing I could find that would go on the floor other than a Bumbo.
