With Thanksgiving just around the corner, perhaps you’re already thinking about how to celebrate the holiday with your baby or toddler.

The Perfect High Chair for Thanksgiving
Nomi Baby Accessory – $189.95
Do you have a newborn or little one up to six months who isn’t quite into eating like everyone else will be on Turkey Day? You’ll want to get a Nomi Baby, an accessory to the Nomi High Chair to bring your new bundle of joy to the table. The elevated height of this not-quite-a-high-chair lets you keep an eye on your baby while you eat. You won’t have to leave the table to attend to a fussy baby who can hear everyone else having a grand old time while passing the mashed potatoes. You’ll encourage full family togetherness, from oldest to youngest, with ease. Additionally, if you have a toddler and you want a great high chair that grows with them, check out the Nomi High Chair and learn more about Nomi here.
Stay Clean on Thanksgiving Day
No doubt you already have an incredibly cute outfit (or two) picked out for your little one’s Thanksgiving Day. Keep those clothes clean whether they’re nursing, teething, or eating their first foods. The Green Sprouts Stay-Dry Bibs are waterproof, making them perfect for everything from food to drool to spit-up. They’re a must have for teething droppers and keeping those clothes dry.
For the toddlers who are ready to chow down on turkey and green bean casserole, grab a Food-catcher Bib! Not only will the waterproof silicone keep them neat and tidy, but the food catcher will keep your floor—or your family’s floor—clean from the tornado that can be toddlers learning to feed themselves. It’s made from safe materials and easy to clean. It also rolls up neatly for easy travel purposes.
From Bottle Feeding to Self-Feeding to Snacks
Boon TRIP Travel Drying Rack – $14.99
If you’re bottle feeding on the go this Thanksgiving, grab the TRIP travel drying rack from Boon. Place it next to the sink at your in-law’s house or on the counter in your hotel room. You can wash the bottles and nipples in the sink with the handy dual-ended brush. They can then dry on the green lawn. Of course, the best part is that this drying rack is compact and folds up quite small to toss in your diaper bag.
For the toddlers who are learning to feed themselves, bring along this learning plate and cutlery set from Green Sprouts. On top be being appropriately sized for your little one, the suction cup on the bottom of the plate may save you from additional messes. You won’t have to worry about your toddler damaging great-grandma’s china or cleaning up after a plate heads off the side of the high chair and lands on the family dog. It’s win-win.
GoBe Kids Snack Spinner – $24.95
If your family is like any other family, the big Thanksgiving meal might not be served exactly at the planned time. Having snacks on hand for your little one might help avoid a meltdown. The GoBe Kids Snack Spinner will help save the holiday. On top of having a variety of snacks at hand, it’s spillproof!

And you’ll get to savor the pumpkin pie slathered in whipped cream. It will be a holiday to remember for sure.
Stay Cute, Too
Melange Collection Pumpkin Hat – $24.00
