We have wood floors, and she can schooch it along using a combination of kicking her legs and swinging her arms above her head. It hasn't been a huge problem yet since I always sit right next to her when she is in the chair, but I am afraid that she will hit something and fall over. She is very small for her age (a little over 18 lbs) and I that she is only going to be able to move it more as she gets bigger.

I know a lot of people who read this website have this high chair. Has anyone else had this problem?

How did they solve it? Is it just time to get her a bigger, sturdier chair that she won't be able to move? Or does this happen with all high chairs?
