A high chair that loves to travel

Holding your squirming toddler while you're trying to eat can make any meal unmanageable, but when you're on the road, a highchair isn't always available. Those clip-on ones are convenient but too bulky to carry, and putting your crawling kid down on a restaurant floor isn't an option. So, what is? I wrote about a great new product called the Totseat this weekend for my Gearing Up column in the Boston Globe's Sunday Travel section.

Hands-free mealtime

By Lylah M. Alphonse, Globe Staff

The Totseat is a strong cloth high chair that slips over and clips onto most adult-ize chairs to securely hold babies and toddlers who can sit up on their own (about 8 to 30 months old). Stuff it into a bag for easy transport; it weighs just 10 ounces.About $35 at Wild Child (397 Mass. Ave., Arlington; 781-483-3566, and online at [More]
