If he's still working on sitting unaided a corner seat might be good for support. Most of them come with tables too so they can play away.. Agree with others though - probably best to get input from an ot. If you google corner seat you'll get lots of options. HTH

Thanku, Jack has a corner seat, nt tht type I mean tho, a seat he can sit in, reclines perhaps an gives support, cos he will be in it most of the dayxx

Not sure if this would be any good, but instantly thought of this I'm sure you can get the footstool as well. I have the adult version and it is very supportive, was great when I suffered with a bad back during pregnancy, and has a slight recline.

Well DD has something like this. It does recline and goes up and down so can be pushed in to table, or has a table that attaches. It's quite bulky though, and not at all portable and expensive. I tried out the ikea chair for DD but there wasn't quite enough support for her. Definitely worth a try though

Actually it's closer to this it's an older model that was passed down to us...

We are getting one of these for DS.
Through OT thankfully, coz I suspect I'd have to remortgage to buy one.
He's tried one out and its FAB! Can't wait for it to come.

Get onto OT - Jack's getting bigger now and he needs to be secure when he's seated.

How's he doing now? I know you've had a very worrying time.
