How do you feed your toddler when they've outgrown the highchair??

DD is just too big for her highchair (I always hated it anyway and will be thrilled to see it go!) but we do not have a kitchen table (remodeling) at the moment. To avoid a huge messy living room floor, how could I feed her where she can feed herself? She knows how to use a spoon and everything. Anyone have tips, advice?

Oh I have one of those!! We don't have any other kind of table...no coffee table or anything. I was thinking about getting her a little folding table for kids...

When we didn't have a table we bought one of those folding hard plastic picnic tables for kids and let DD eat at that.

The little picnic table sounds like a good idea...

My dd is just about 20 months and she hates not sitting with everyone else at supper, so we got her one of these:

I take it to my parents house all the time, and we never eat at the table there, I just put dd in it on the floor next to me, and she loves it. Sometimes we even bring it in the living room if we're doing a "pizza/movie night"

How big is your dd? Ds is 23m and just about 30lbs and about 36inches and STILL fits in highchairs. Its hard to believe that shes outgrown it already, unless your meaning that she just wont sit in it anyMORE?

Well, we bought DD a table and 2 chairs-The Little Mermaid ($20-30) for her Christmas and that is where she eats now... It is also where she colors, plays with her blocks, and about everything else. She loves sitting there.

DS ate a a child's folding table-- it's been a great purchase. We use it to color, puzzles, etc. I never owned a high chair with him, went from the exersaucer, to a booster seat to his table---

I'm going to cry when DD outgrows her high chair.

We have a small kids blue wooden table and chairs from Ikea. Ours is 9 years old and still great. It sits in the middle of the kitchen. My 13 & 10 yr old still sit at it. It wasn't that expensive. And it is better made than most kids table. No press board.

Similar to this one:
