I was so excited to find this chair while shopping for our son. It was beautiful, modern, and not clunky like a lot of the plastic high chairs out there. So we bought it! We found that we couldn't use this chair until my son was a little older though. The one that we used at my parents house supported our little guy at a much younger age (they used one of the one's that you can strap to your own chair). When we were finally able to use the Svan I was so excited, but quickly found out how hard it is to clean. LOTS of crevices for food particles to fall into and it takes a fine toothed brush to get in there and clean it out. It also wasn't as sturdy as I would have liked. When my son had the wiggles this thing was all over the place and I feel like it could have lost a bolt at any moment. I was constantly checking the bolts to make sure they weren't coming loose. We continued to use it for a while but had to move into a smaller home and this chair takes up a lot of space! We found that using a smaller chair that we could strap onto one of our own was better for us. So something that we thought we would have for a long time and would end up growing with our son, ended up being sold on craigslist.
