We have a tripp trapp high chair and I thought it was brilliant until my 10 month managed to tip herself backwards(to the floor) whilst sitting at the table! Has anyone else had this problem? Warning to those of you that have the chair or are thinking of buying it.

Did she have the tray on or the baby bar under the table edge?

Have had a baby tip over a bog standard highchair by using his feet to tilt it back and then crash so i tend to either have it under the table edge or near a wall/solid object.

my boys have used a tripp trap for 4 years and never done this. Is your chair on carpet? If my boys push back the chair just slides on our wooden floor, and is very stable even when they stand on it!!

dd used to try to do this

screw a small brass eyelet under the table top where the highchair normally is, and tie the leather bit of the baby bar to the eyelet with some string, or elastic.

On a previous thread along these lines, someone's dh had tied the chair to the table with bungee cord.

The novelty soon wears off, and you can remove the ties when it has.

You can also do a bungeefrom 1 table leg thru the tripp trapp legs to the other table leg.

Hope you DD was unhurt Zespri

She may have frightened herself enough not to do it again wink
