Tripp Trapp® adjusts to the size of your child, ensuring he or she is always at the perfect height to eat, play and interact, with his or her feet properly supported, at whatever age.
But there are some things to bear in mind. Stokke® recommends limited use of any high chair when a child is very young. Yes, even the ergonomically designed Tripp Trapp®. Of course, later on the child can decide when to sit and when to walk around, but in the early days of a child’s life, parents need to be aware that until a baby can sit up without support – usually at about 6-9 months - it’s better off playing on a clean floor, on a play mat or even in a playpen.
Learn how to adjust your Tripp Trapp® chair.
Once babies can sit up unaided, they still should never really be seated for more than 10 to 15 minutes at a time - long enough to eat, not to sleep. Babies’ spines and muscle structures are at a delicate stage of development so their feet and backs should be properly supported at all times.
The Tripp Trapp® chair’s unique adjustability makes it possible to ensure your child is sitting with elbows at table height and feet supported, leaving room between the seat and the child’s calves. The legs should be supported at approximately 90 degrees. The back of the knees should for babies have about two fingers’ width clearance from the seat front to aid circulation. As the child grows, see to that approximately ¾ of their thigh is supported by the seat plate.
