Children's chair that opens from the side

A children's chair that is suitable for wheelchair-using parents of young children and who find it difficult to lift the child in and out of an ordinary highchair.

Description
Children's chair from Stokke with stomach rail. Between the stomach rail and backrest are fabric straps that can be opened from the side. The child sits at the same height as on its mother's lap.

Model: Stokke Sitti

Technique: Erika positions herself somewhat behind the child's chair with her knees next to the seat; she supports herself on the chair in order to keep her balance and slides the child over.

Authors comments
Since the seat is at the same height as the mother's lap and since the chair can be opened with a strap from the sides Erika can place the child in the chair by herself.

Editors comments
Today Stokke does not sell 'Stokke Sitti' anymore.
Babybjörn, www.babyshop.com has a highchair with a foldout table which enables the mother/father to place the child into the chair from the side (last checked May 2017).
