When we were asked if we wanted to try out the Summer Infant 4 in 1 Superseat, we jumped at the chance! With Henry on the cusp of sitting up, he’s desperate to see everything and wants to be held all.the.time!
At almost 6 months, Henry is just at the age where he’s getting stronger every day and fighting to sit up! Whilst he can sit for a few seconds unsupported, the majority of the time I have to hold him in an upright position. This is difficult when Alfie needs my attention, or I need to do some housework, or even go to the toilet! He hates being laid down, and to be honest I can’t leave him on the floor with Alfie around anyway as it’s a recipe for disaster!
So when I was asked if I would like to review the new Superseat, I jumped at the chance. From looking at it online, I knew it was going to be good, but it has outdone my expectations completely!
It was fairly easy to put together. I followed the instructions, except for the bit where you had to screw the tray together. I kind of just bodged it and left it unscrewed as I couldn’t get the screws in easily myself but then I managed to scratch Henry’s leg getting him in it, so definitely don’t miss the step!! Since I’ve screwed it as instructed, it’s much sturdier.
Once it was all put together and we started using it, I wondered how I ever got on without it! Henry does have a rocker to sit in, but I think where it has stretched from Alfie sitting in it, Henry can’t sit upright and gets frustrated! We’ve had the Superseat for a few weeks now and have used it every single day.
I love that it’s got the activity tray on one side, which keep Henry occupied when he’s sitting in it. There’s enough on there to keep him amused for a good amount of time – you’ve got a three shape sorters, a spinner, a teething ring and a tracker toy with gliding beads.
You can then swivel the tray round to use for when we are ready to start weaning him. We have a proper high chair for meals, but this will be very handy for giving him snacks during the day. The straps are super easy to clip in and out and the tray can be clipped off to easily get the baby in and out. This is the only part I find a bit fiddly – there are release clips underneath the tray to unclip it and I can never get my fingers in the right position without having to stick my head under and look. Not a massive thing, but just a tiny bit annoying if I need to get Henry out quickly.
The actual seat is made of a soft foam so it’s very comfortable. We do have another booster seat that we used for Alfie, but I find this much more comfortable as it’s so soft!
I’ve found so many uses for this seat already – when we’re sitting in the garden watching Alfie in the paddling pool, when we’re having lunch in the garden, when we’re getting ready in the morning. It’s even quick and easy to pop in the car to take to Nanny’s house!
The seat then comes with extra straps so when Henry is bigger, he can use it as a booster seat attached to a dining room chair. Priced at £44.99, I think this makes the seat fantastic value for money as we have used it from 5 months and I reckon we’ll use it until he is about 2, or until he can sit on a dining chair without the need for a booster, so maybe even longer!
I would highly recommend this Superseat, we absolutely love it! It’s definitely one of my favourite “second child” accessories we’ve had.
