I was really stoked about this little invention for wfmw, until my husband came in and called it "totally ghetto-fab." Well, if you have a bunch of feeding related objects that seem to populate around your dining room table, maybe this will work for you.
One thing I never seem to have around is enough bibs. I also always have a can of puffies hanging around the table that never makes it back to the kitchen. So I decided to add a little storage pocket onto the back of my high chair. First, check the back of your high chair. You probably have some extra holes where you could adjust the straps. My high chair is a Chicco.
I took a tote bag (it was one of the freebies from a few weeks ago) and cut the straps off the front, so I had two long straps that I could thread into my highchair. If you thought things through more than I did, maybe you'd turn the bag around so the logo wasn't showing. Oh well, no one is really seeing this anyway. You could also use a gift bag if you don't have a tote bag. Stick the handle straps through the holes in the high chair:
On the inside of the high chair (inside of the seat liner) secure the straps. I just criss-crossed mine and stapled them. Nothing really fancy:
Put the seat cover back on, and fill your storage bag with those items you need near the highchair:
I don't think that it is very unsightly, especially since no one sees the back of my high chair:
Maybe this won't work for every type of highchair, but maybe it gave you an idea to add a bit more storage where you need it!
