Baby Essentials: Cheeky Chompers Neckerchew & Mamas & Papas Baby Bud Booster Seat

Often when buying gifts for babies and toddler people head for toys or books and that is, of course, lots of fun.  However I really appreciate the gifts for them that meet a real need and I’d like to share with  you two baby essentials that are worthy of gifting this year.

Parents of babies and toddlers often find that space is at a premium in their home because of all the baby gear.  This is especially the case in our kitchen as we only have an eat in kitchen area with no separate dining space.  There is just no physical way for us to have two highchairs when there is barely room for one. 

Step in the Mamas & Papas Baby Bud Booster Seat.   This is really the perfect booster seat for both at home and on the go and its suitable from 4 months all the way up to 3 years.  It does require some quick installation but I had the seat out of the box and in use in under 10 minutes.

The Baby Bud features a soft and easy to clean removable and comfortable seat insert,  The insert is meant to be removed after 12 months but I keep it in because Keira is tiny anyway and I like to switch children at a moments notice.    You can also use the easy to remove tray in three different positions as your baby grows.

The adjustable non-slip feet are genius.  I am always facing issues with booster seats slipping around slightly on our wooden chairs but that is absolutely not an issue between the two chair harnesses and the feet.  One Chair harness fits around the back of the seat and the other fits right under the seat which really helps to secure the Baby Bud in place. 

The Baby Bud is also shaped so that it can fit my undersized children or much larger babies and toddlers.   (Both my husband and myself are small people with mom’s under 5 feet tall so they come by it quite naturally!)

It’s so comfortable my girls don’t mind being sat in it for extended periods to play while I make dinner or clean up the kitchen.

I’ve found that the Baby Bud is perfect to get Keira at just the right height to be able to join us at the kitchen table and actually be able to see what is in her bowl or on her plate.  We can take the tray right off to get her right up close to the table.   The safety harness holds her in just as well as it holds in Ava so I am quite comfortable with the safety level of the Baby Bud.

The Cheeky Chompers Neckerchew could almost be mistaken as a simple baby fashion accessory.  They certainly are cute enough and come in a large variety of different colours and patterns.   You could get one to match every outfit in your child’s wardrobe if you so desired even!

The Neckerchew was actually created by a pair of mom’s and it is the world’s first chewy dribble bib for teething babies.  It is made of super-soft jersey cotton with an absorbent middle layer to lock away moisture which of course helps to prevent the rashes that teething babies sometimes develop running down their front.It also has a Teether at the end made from silicone that has been designed to never flake or peel.

Ava, like most babies, loves to rip off any accessory that gets near her from bibs to hats but she loves her Neckerchews because of the chewy end.  Ava still isn’t teething (as far as I can tell anyway) at 11 months old but she still loves to chew on everything she can.  As you can imagine the teether is constantly in her mouth.

I can only imagine how much of a laundry saver this would be for a drooling baby and I’m looking forward to a lot less mid-day wardrobe changes this go around once that starts.   In the meantime, she has fun and looks pretty fabulous at the same time!

 *Update 12/03  – Ava’s first tooth popped out on December 1st, and with it the drooling started!  The Neckerchews have been amazing the past few days at keeping her neck and chest dry – plus she absolutely loves chewing on it constantly.  These are really amazing!

  1. Love the pictures! This looks like a really good booster seat, I was a bit concerned when first looking I thought it had wheels, but they are the legs

  2. The Cheeky Chomper’s look awesome and are certainly great for teething babies. I have a baby shower coming up , these are a great gift idea

  3. This looks like a great booster seat! Perfect for those that don’t have room for a highchair or needs a booster seat at grandma’s!

  4. I so wish I had a booster seat like that when my kids were little, we had some weird one that didn’t work so well. This one has options and looks comfy!

  5. That looks like a very nice booster. I wish I would have had one of these back when my girls were using boosters! I’ll have to let my sister know about it. Thanks!

  6. That is just great. My nephew is getting to the age to need one of these so I am totally passing this onto my sister. Thanks for sharing.

  7. This is a great looking booster seat. I like that it fits easily at the table. The bib is such a great idea for teething babies.

  8. My nephew actually has one and it really helps. Before he had one, he’s get out of his seat and run around. I had to stop it because I don’t tolerate that behavior in my home. Everyone eats at the dinner table, and not runs around to slop food. It’s been a lot better and my sister even thanked me.

  9. I can see that Keira loves the Baby Bud, great photo btw 🙂 I too couldn’t understand why it had wheels until I realised they weren’t wheels at all. Silly me 🙂

    1. I thought they were wheel too to be honest until I got it out of the box! Keira LOVES the Baby Bud, she gets herself in it and even does up the safety straps herself.
