After Kindle was a baby, I discovered Bumbo seats. I purchased one when I was pregnant with Grant. I think a lot of people have seen these before, but just in case you haven't, I will tell you a bit about them.
The Bumbo seat is made to help assist babies that can't quite sit up yet. It is also great for babies that can sit up, but need to be kept still for a bit. (Please note that your baby needs to be able to control it's head and neck before you use it.)

I have used mine to feed Grant and Celeste when they were starting solids and beginning to sit up. They make a tray that you can put on it as well so that children can have toys or finger foods on it. When Gunnar starts with solids, I will be using it with him as well. (Please note that you should never leave the baby on an elevated surface unattended for obvious safety reasons.)

I have seen lots of these at consignments sales for amazing deals. Since you can clean these so easily, must of them look brand new. I would recommend that any new Mom picks one of these up. It will be worth it!
