I thought we'd just gain some floor space, but transitioning my toddler out of the high chair actually had a big impact on Little Guy in several ways. For starters, he's eating so much more and so much better! That is good news, since I am always worried about him eating a well-balanced diet.
The best thing, though, is the serious drop in tantrums during dinner. He's also more cooperative about eating what's put in front of him and being less likely to be fussy about his food.
