I have a very diddy 7mo who cannot keep herself steady enough to sit in a chair and wean,

I was advised to pop over here and ask you all what you use to sit your little ones in budget is minimal (very)

I used my DC's bouncy chair to wean them both (one born at 42 weeks, one born at 28weeks) before they were strong enough to sit upright.

My prem DS was still a bit wobbly when on 3 meals so I borrowed one of those big cushioned highchairs with plenty of support before he grew in to our own less supportive chair.

Thank you for the reply another mum on here suggested the car seat and that worked well last night :-)

I'm using my bouncy chair for my 27 weeker, but have bought an Ikea Antilop high chair too. £16 including tray, wipe clean and with an inatable insert that holds them steady, and you can gradually deflate it as they get bigger.

I used bouncy chairs for my prem twins, that worked well for us. They then went into Ikea high chair at around 8 months.

Why not try a bumbo chair with tray.
