Why an expert loves the Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair

Why an expert loves the Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair

Written by: Allison Weiss, MSOT, OTR/L, SWC 

As a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and Feeding Therapist, I consider the Stoke Tripp Trapp the gold standard of high chairs. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it is functional and versatile. The Stokke Tripp trapp is suitable for babies as young as six months as they first start to eat solids all the way through childhood. I love it so much that when I had my second baby I knew I needed to buy a second Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair so that each of my kids could participate in meals and snacks in their own Tripp Trapp chairs.

I can’t share my love for The Pump Station & Nurtury enough!

What is Thrush?

New Moms ask us this question daily. Thrush is a yeast infection caused by an overgrowth of the organism Candida Albicans, which is the same yeast organism that causes vaginal yeast infections.While it's called an “infection”, it’s really an “overgrowth” of Candida, a normal part of the flora found on skin.

And more importantly, we are often asked if It is SAFE for both mom and baby to continue breastfeeding while treating thrush.

Why is my baby suddenly fighting sleep?

Why is my baby suddenly fighting sleep?

Bedtime is approaching and six-month old Oliver is getting sleepy. So, his mother does the same thing she has been doing every night since he was a newborn.  She takes him over to the rocking chair, dims the lights, and rocks and feeds him to sleep. 


I’m sure this is an image that is easy to conjure up, as it seems very commonplace and unproblematic ... read more
