According to Montessori ideals, an environment is tailored to the children. This often means equipping your home with child-sized furniture.
With comfortable furniture, children have the freedom to move independently. A weaning chair is no different. It gives babies a place of their own to sit and enjoy a meal like the child has seen the parents do since birth.
Some of the many benefits of the weaning chair.
Independence: A weaning chair allows your child to get in and out on their own. There's no waiting for you to lift them to a high chair or being stuck in the chair when they are done.
Comfort: The chair's height allows for the child's feet to be placed flat on the ground while they sit up all the way.
Table Manners: A weaning chair and table offers the child a natural transition to sitting at a dining table. It also allows them plenty of space to use real dishes, place-mat, napkins and more.
Household Participation: Children can help to participate in setting, clearing and cleaning the table. These practical life skills are fun for you children and help children participate in the natural rhythm of the home.
Sibling Interaction: Weaning tables provide a gathering space for young children, including siblings to fully interact during a meal.
