The first time I used the portable high chair was at our parish picnic. The bright orange seat really stood out, and there were many mothers who came up to ask “Where did you get that seat?” Several people told me they didn’t know there was such a thing, and that the idea of a portable, washable high chair was brilliant.

Melissa at qdSpray invited me to give her sink-mounted sprayer a test drive this fall. She was extremely helpful through the whole process since I was a complete amateur in the diapering spraying department.

After measuring the distance from my sink to the toilet, I received the qdSpray with an 8-foot hose. Melissa also included some handy extras: a small aerator wrench to make installation easier, and an extra adapter so I could use the sprayer with other types of sinks.
