MY 6 month old daughter, is inconsolable in her high chair at every feed time. She even starts crying now as I put her in it. It's really starting to upset me now. I can;t feed her for the amount of screaming and crying she does. I have tried giving her some finger food and a spoon to hold but she just gets angrier and more upset. The highchair had a gap between her and the table as she;s still young so anything she picks up falls down it. It was a present so I don;t feel I can change it. She seems happy sometimes to get her hands in the bowl but obviously no feeding gets done. I didn;t have this with my first, so am at my wits end!!! Pls help, she's still upset half an hour after feeding. I'm dreading the next meal!
Could you put a cushion behind her back so that she sits further forward to block the gap? If she's small, how about one of those highchair inserts you can buy for about £10 in mothercare? what sort of highchair have you got?
Well used the booster seat instead tonight and hey - BLISS!!! She sat next to her sister and ate so much better. There's only a lap belt, so she wouldn't know it;s there. I do thing it;s the straps, as in her car seat she gets really annoyed with me strapping her in! We cam't eat together though except once or twice a week as DH works late, but at least she can eat with her sis at tea times, hope tommorow is better! tq!
