High Chair Buying Guide
Is your little one ready to start joining you in the dinner table? Look through our buying to find out what high chair you should buy.
What to Consider
- Style: High chairs are perfect for home. Booster seats are easy to use and travel with.
- Versatility: Adjustable seats are perfect for providing support for your growing baby
- Ease of Cleaning: Detachable trays are easy to clean and useful for feeding your baby. Easy to clean, washable material is essential when your baby spills
- Safety: Safety restraints (a 3 or 5 point harness) are essential to prevent your baby from falling or climbing out of your high chair. Make sure to check for safety certification.
- Comfort: Padded seats make feeding time comfortable for your baby. A footrest offers great support for your baby and is useful as they grow.
- Space: If you don't have much space, make sure to buy a foldable chair for storage and check dimensions to make sure your high chair fits into your dining area
- Portability: If you need to move your high chair from the kitchen to the dining area or storage, opt for a foldable chair or one with wheels.
- Ease of Use: Before buying a high chair, check that it's easy for you to strap your baby in. Make sure your baby cannot unclasp the buckles themselves!
