Mealtime solutions with carriers

Following the Saturday Babywearing International of DC-MD-VA meeting this past week, several families went over to a local deli for lunch.  Well, when a deli that caters mostly to business folks is inundated with babies and toddlers on a Saturday when a few other families were already there... high chairs become scarce.  What's a mom to do?  See, little Fred here took the last high chair.
 Well, it does seem he's interested in eating, so I guess we can't kick him out...

 Oh, hey, a RS will do well in keeping an older toddler from falling out of the booster.  But what about a littler baby?

Ah, a soft structure carrier can be buckled around her waist using the chest clip and over her legs and under the chair with the waist buckle.  This worked well with a booster.  Angelique also used a MT to tie her 13mo old to the booster, but somehow we didn't grab a picture of that.

But, since we're talking about using carriers when no high chair is available, in the absence of a booster or high chair when I was abroad with my second at about 8mo, I used a carrier to secure her to a regular chair.
So, as you can see, carriers are ever so functional, even when not being used to carry a baby.
