Dining Out With Infants

Koala Infant Seat Kradle Holds Newborns in Place at the Table

Homemade meals are great, but every once in a while, mom and dad want to be waited on too. When new moms and dads head out for dinner with their newborn in tow, there is always the question of where the tot should go. While pulling the stroller up to the table is an option in some restaurants, it isn't practical in others. In those instances, there's always the "flip the high chair over and rest the car seat in base" trick, but many parents don't feel comfortable resting their precious cargo in an upside down seat. While dining out over the weekend, I saw our waiter bring out an option I had never seen before. The Koala Infant Seat Kradle ($103) is a mesh sling, attached to steel tubing, designed to hold infant car seats at table height. The contraption appeared to keep baby comfortably in place while mama and papa enjoyed their meal. Would you try out the Kradle?

My oldest is 6 and I'd never seen one of these before, but I think it's because I've just always carried my babies in to restaurants and sat with them on my lap.

Yeah, I was going to say, im pretty shocked you haven't come across one yet. They have them at all the resturaunts around here.

Most restaurants supply these. It would be ridiculous to buy one.
