Like choosing a crib, picking out a highchair was a big decision. We considered skipping it entirely and just doing some kind of booster seat thing, until I started looking around and my design-lust kicked in. After much debate, we opted for the brand new Anka chair from Svan of Sweden. I knew we wanted a wooden chair, rather than a big ol’ plastic one. First, we looked at the original Svan — but I didn’t love the round base. Then we oggled the Tripp Trapp but we wanted something with a tray (at least right now). Then, lo and behold, Svan introduced the Anka, which fit all of our needs. It’s wooden but comes with an easy-to-wash tray and cushion. It’s compact and can fold when not in use. And, it’s more affordable than other options ($180). I’ll let you know how it works as Isadora grows, but as you can see from the photo above, it’s already a big hit!

P.S. In case you’re wondering, that’s a palette of sweet potato and avocado on the bib.
