The best advice anyone shared when I became a mom was to get out of the house every day. I try to do just that–but where should I go? What if she cries, or needs a diaper?

High Chair Happy Hour is a collection of personal observations as I take my baby out in Seattle. Out to eat, to play, to shop, and to otherwise engage with the world.

When reviewing a location, I’ll try to notice, remember, and record:

  • Location & hours of operation
  • Transit access and/or parking
  • Accessibility for strollers & little legs
  • Cost
  • Activities & safety issues
  • Food/drink (for kids and adults)
  • Restrooms and changing table
  • Overall welcome (or not) towards kids & babies
  • Space/privacy to nurse

We carry or wear the baby in a sling, which I find easier than carrying a heavy car seat or navigating a stroller. If you use a stroller, be sure to check if there’s stroller parking before you go.
