Grow With Me: DuoDiner™ 3-in-1 Highchair & a chance to win!

Update: Hi everyone, Thanks for playing! Comments are now closed. Stay tuned, we’ll announce our winner shortly!

Last month, we began the conversation with you about smart design – products that actually adapt with your growing child.  I told you about one of my favorite highchairs, the SimpleSwitch 2-in-1 – and we gave you a chance to win one.

Now I’m back this month to introduce you to the second highchair in our ‘Grow With Me’ series: the DuoDiner™ 3-in-1.  And, guess what!  That’s right, one lucky reader will win one of these as well.

For new parents out there, you’re going to be surprised at just how early you’ll start using a highchair.   (So if you don’t win this time around, don’t forget to put a highchair on your registry.)  DuoDiner’s™ 1st mode is an infant highchair with 3 levels of recline.  In this mode, the seat can be used as a comfortable place to give baby a bottle or explore rice cereal and other “first solids” – or even simply as a safe place to sit baby in the kitchen when you need to be hands-free.

Fast forward a few months:  your baby has changed?  So will the DuoDiner™.  In stage 2, you’ll probably use the upright seating position along with the adjustable footrest in order to accommodate baby’s growing legs.  Interjecting as a Mom for a second, this stage of “babyhood” is one of my favorites as the little ones become so very aware and want to be included in everything you do.  A feature perfectly matched to this quality is the 6-position height adjustment: meaning you can bring baby right up to the dinner table with the rest of the family!  Trust me, they’ll be thrilled with this graduation.

Stage 3 is perfectly timed to coincide with when the “newness” of having baby gear all over your house starts to lose its luster!  Not only will the seat become a detachable toddler booster that easily straps to your existing table chairs, the rest of the highchair body can then be easily stowed away… until the next little one needs it, at least :)

Combine these “Grow With  Me” features with easy cleanability and it’s easy to see why parents love the DuoDiner™ 3-in-1 Highchair.

To enter the DuoDiner™ 3-in-1 giveaway, leave a comment answering this question for us: if given a choice, would you rather have a highchair that has one “wipe-clean” seat pad OR a highchair with two machine-washable seat pads?  We look forward to reading your responses; we take your feedback seriously!

**This contest will be open until Friday, November 11th at 5:00 p.m. EST. Comments will be closed after this time. Winners will be announced here on the Graco blog (www.blog.gracobaby.com) Monday, November 14th. Void where prohibited. Available in the US only.

    I would much prefer a single wipe clean seat pad.

  2. Stephanie Vallejo November 3, 2011 at 8:12 pm #

    I would prefer the single wipe much better. It’s easier and earth-friendly.

  3. Karen Williams November 3, 2011 at 8:17 pm #

    I would prefer the single wipe much better. It would be easier.

  4. Megan Johnson November 3, 2011 at 8:25 pm #

    I would prefer the single wipe much better. It would save time, and so much easier.

  5. Sarah Sincock November 3, 2011 at 8:57 pm #

    I would much prefer a wipe clean seat pad…..spray a bit of disinfectant, wipe and your done! xx

  6. Hayley Crow November 3, 2011 at 9:20 pm #

    I would prefer a high chair with 2 removable washable pads. Sometimes wiping isn’t enough and it needs a good thourough clean!

  7. Shannon November 3, 2011 at 9:36 pm #

    I would prefer the two washable ones. Even if its able to be wiped down, id still likr to throw it in the washer to make sure its really clean.

  8. Kysta Jordan November 4, 2011 at 12:49 am #

    I would rather have two machine washable covers. Some foods need more than wiping down to get out of the crevices.

  9. courtney short November 4, 2011 at 2:49 am #

    I would prefer 2 washable seat covers. Wiping a cover down by hand is ok for small messes, but you need to be able to wash them completely to really get the cover clean.

  10. Meghan November 4, 2011 at 3:11 am #

    I’d like one with two machine-washable seat pads. Then I could wash one when the other one is on the high chair!

  11. sara tolliver November 4, 2011 at 4:16 am #

    I would prefer the two washable covers.
    I understand the ease of wipe-off seat pad, but the material is then plastic and seems less comfortable for the child.

  12. Chris Schatz November 4, 2011 at 4:21 am #

    I would prefer the two washable covers. Easier to wash and you would always have one clean and comfortable for the child.

  13. Maria F. November 4, 2011 at 9:43 am #

    I think both wold be nice!But I think I would pick two washable seat covers!

  14. Kristen November 4, 2011 at 11:21 am #

    I agree with Maria… How about a wipeable/washable fabric. hehe :) Definitely washable overall though. I love the idea of being able to toss it in for that sanitized “feel” clean “look” clean opportunity while having a 2nd to use. Plus, usually those fabrics aren’t slippery and thus a younger baby fits better in the seat upright without sliding around in the seat. Wipe down the legs and other surfaces and whallah! Oh and definitely a tray that is dishwasher safe on the bottom rack! Top rack it doesn’t fit so we end up hand washing it anyways.

  15. Ashley H. November 4, 2011 at 1:31 pm #

    2 washable seat covers! Even though I haven’t had a chance to use anything yet (due in Feb), I would think throwing one in the wash for good measure wouldn’t be too burdensome!

  16. Robin Murphy November 4, 2011 at 3:54 pm #

    Ideally the seat cover would be a little wipe-able but also able to go into the washer. I like giving them a more thorough cleaning every so often.

  17. Rhi November 4, 2011 at 4:00 pm #

    I like the idea of machine washable pads!

  18. Latonya R November 4, 2011 at 4:43 pm #

    Two interchangeable covers would be better than just a wipe down! You will eventually have to replace the one wipe down cover so two covers will just give you a little more time.

  19. Chen T. November 4, 2011 at 6:45 pm #

    I’d rather two interchangeable covers as a throughout cleaning is needed for the comfort of the baby.

  20. Lisa Bradshaw November 4, 2011 at 7:53 pm #

    2 washables, for me!

  21. Melanie November 4, 2011 at 7:59 pm #

    I would prefer a “wipe-clean” seat pad. You never know how the ones will hold up in the wash, and it will be quicker to clean up for the next use! If both of the washable ones are dirty before you have time to wash them (you know how life can be busy!)that could put you in a bind!

  22. Katie W November 4, 2011 at 8:38 pm #

    one wipe-clean pad

  23. Christina Wells November 4, 2011 at 9:09 pm #

    I would prefer 2 washable pads. Wipe clean pads eventually crack or tear, and food always gets stuck under the “non-washable” material. There is then no way to wash the “wipe clean” pad without putting it in the washer where it falls apart. I currently have a Graco highchair with a non-washable pad, and wish it was just a cloth pad for those reasons. This highchair was a gift so I can’t complain too much ;) If I am purchasing baby items I really look for longevity of the product. Every kids item needs to be able to be washable in every nook and cranny and materials need to hold up.

  24. Meg Robinson November 4, 2011 at 10:46 pm #

    It must be wipe-able…I do that at least three times a day currently, if I had to put it in the washer it would be once a week and would be nasty:)

  25. Dee W. November 5, 2011 at 1:54 am #

    I’d prefer the two washable pads. That would be much easier to keep clean. It’s really hard trying to get the food out of the little places that it gets into, and all the wiping in the world doesn’t help!

  26. Bridget McCormick November 5, 2011 at 3:42 am #

    I’d definitely prefer a wipe clean seat pad! Already have enough laundry to do with 3 kids! And I wipe the seat clean at least 3 times a day so I wouldnt want to wash the seat pad every day!

  27. amy pugmire November 5, 2011 at 3:55 am #

    i would pick the one wipe clean seat pad. It’s such a pain to wash baby stuff, you are constantly having to wash it and most the time the stains won’t come out. I would love to just be able to wipe it down one time. that would save alot of time

  28. Laura November 5, 2011 at 5:06 pm #

    I would definitely be convenient to have a wipe-able fabric that can be washable!!! Sometimes wiping off baby food doesn’t do the trick.

  29. Laura Asplin November 6, 2011 at 7:02 pm #

    I would prefer a machine washable one- one with both options would be a definite plus.

  30. Samantha S November 6, 2011 at 8:41 pm #

    I would prefer two machine washable seat pads, as sometimes wipe clean just isn’t enough.

  31. Leanne November 7, 2011 at 9:03 pm #

    This is awesome! I don’t have kiddos yet (#1 due in January!) but think that the washable pads would be better because wiping things down doesn’t always get things 100% clean. Perhaps having one wipeable pad and one washable pad. That way if dinner is seriously messy you can use the washable one vs. the wipeable one for more average-mess meals.

  32. Michelle Pignataro November 8, 2011 at 1:57 am #

    I would definitely prefer a chair with two washable pads, that way I’d always have a clean one ready after a very messy meal :)

  33. Sarah November 8, 2011 at 1:58 am #

    I like the wipe clean seat pad! Babies are mess & wouldn’t want to have to put it in the wash after every meal :-) I do enough laundry.

  34. Rachel November 8, 2011 at 2:01 am #

    I would definitely prefer the two washable covers. In my previous experience with nannying and babysitting, I noticed that the wipeable pads tended to eventually rip and constantly have gunk stuck in them regardless of how often, or how well they got wiped down… an heaven forbid there occurred a gagging messy episode. Having a removable pad to brush off and throw in the wash is just so much easier. Having two — even better!

  35. Melissa November 8, 2011 at 2:03 am #

    I am not a mother but I am an Aunt of 7 and as messy as kids are when they eat I deffinately would prefer the 2 washable seat pads rather than a sigle wipe clean one because It would be much harder to wipe it clean and much easier to toss it in the wash with some soap. My sister had a washable highchair of a different brand and also a wipe clean one and she much rather prefered the washable one although they both broke go figure theyre not of graco quality. REally hoping I win because my nephew had outgrown his bumbo and in need of a highchair

  36. Randi November 8, 2011 at 2:07 am #

    One wipe-clean pad hands down. It’s much easier AND more Earth friendly so everyone wins! (:

  37. mirjam November 8, 2011 at 2:21 am #

    I prefer the wipe clean ones. They are just WAY easier! As long as they have some plush in them, for the baby to sit on, I love them. Just a quick wipe when the baby is done eating, and it is all clean. No having to throw it in the wash or anything~!
    I hope I win! My son could really use this!

  38. Jennifer November 8, 2011 at 2:26 am #

    I have twins…so that means 2 high chairs. Their chairs have washable pads, which I like. I can still wipe them off, for most messes. But love that I can wash them for big messes, or just to keep them really clean. Having an extra pad would be nice because I don’t like to put them in the dryer, so sometimes they’re still drying when it’s time to use the high chair again!

  39. Ali November 8, 2011 at 2:30 am #

    I’d prefer the two machine washable pads.

  40. michelle November 8, 2011 at 2:39 am #

    i would prefer a one wipe pad!!

  41. Julia November 8, 2011 at 3:10 am #

    wipe clean! I expect to be wiping it a lot!!

  42. Justine November 8, 2011 at 3:33 am #

    I would prefer two machine washable seat pads. My son’s high chair has a washable pad and I love it. I can wipe up small messes and throw it in the washer for bigger messes. Very easy, plus with a second pad you’d never be without one.

  43. Sherri November 8, 2011 at 3:49 am #

    I would typically say wipe down however if I had two covers I would go for the washable one.

  44. Marcela Kapfer November 8, 2011 at 4:18 am #

    I think I would prefer the two machine washable pads. Only because after a while of just wiping it, I would want a REAL clean effect. And I think all kids stuff should be machine washable. Less work for me! : )

  45. Danielle November 8, 2011 at 6:02 am #

    I would actually prefer the two machine washable pads, wiping just doesn’t do as good of a job no matter what the material.

  46. Rosalyn November 8, 2011 at 9:19 am #

    I’d go with the 2 washables also. And an option to buy replacement ones if necessary. My current high chair has a washable cover, but I still usually put a cloth or towel down just because the washable cover has so many little things to work around when getting it on/off. Like having to thread all the buckles and such through.

  47. mandi November 8, 2011 at 12:52 pm #

    wipe clean … but then I’d probably buy an extra one for back up:)

  48. Heather Hearn November 8, 2011 at 1:40 pm #

    Definitely one that has a wipe clean surface. I don’t have time to wash and dry a seat cover everyday so that it’s clean for baby to use the next day, but I do have time to quickly wipe down a cover after each meal.

  49. Jenelle November 8, 2011 at 1:59 pm #

    I am firmly in the wipedown-able camp! I have a three year old and a 10-month old, both of whom have used a highchair (not a Graco) that we got as a hand-me-down from our (now) five year old godson—its manufacture date was 2006, and the wipedownable cover just finally had to be retired this spring because it was too funky to use. A hint from mom-to-manufacturer: make some sort of interchangable universal cover that we can use to replace original parts as they wear out, even if you discontinue the furniture itself. As the covers for our high chair are no longer made, I had to get crafty with vinyl tablecloths sewn along the pattern of the old cover, padded with some of the eggcrate foam packaging out of a shipping box meant for laptops. There’s no way I’m buying a whole new highchair just because the cover needs to be replaced–the frame is fine!

    I prefer the wipe off method..having twins I already do so much laundry!
