ABOUT THE GUEST

My guest for this episode is Jeff Durkee. Jeff is the director of sales for Regal Lager and they are the North American distributor of the Nomi high chair. The Nomi high chair is my favorite high chair for baby-led weaning because of its exceptional design and attention to safety. It’s amazing how many high chairs out there are not only ugly, let’s be real, but are lacking the number one feature that can help reduce baby’s choking risk...and Jeff is going to be talking about that today on behalf of Nomi.

Nomi was designed by the celebrated Scandinavian seating designer Peter Opsvik. We have talked about the Nomi high chair on a previous episode number 92 when Kirsti Vandraas an ergonomist who works with the designer Peter Opsvik joined us in an episode called “How to Choose a Safe Seat for Your Baby to Eat”.
