If you’ve only used your high chair for feeding your little one, get ready to knock your parenting game up a notch. The high chair is the ideal spot to keep baby contained and entertained. With a little prep work, your baby’s mealtime perch will become his new favorite seat in the house, giving you a chance to whip up dinner, paint your nails or finish your own meal.

Stirring the Senses

Sometimes, around-the-house items can serve as the best distractions for baby. Enter: a simple wooden spoon or spatula. Hand one over while you're cooking and let baby bang to his heart's content.
