At Mumzworld, we know babies spend a lot of time in their high chairs. They eat, play and sometimes even nap in them! So it’s important to check out our buyer’s guide to the best high chairs fit for Baby – and you.
When your baby is sitting up confidently on his own, he’s ready to start taking his meals in a highchair. A highchair is especially handy if you have a family dining table, as you can continue eating while feeding your baby, and he can join in with everyone else at the table.
What do I need to know about highchairs?
There’s a huge choice of highchairs on the market, but the most important features are safety and functionality. When you buy a highchair, you need to make sure it’s both sturdy and easy to clean.
If space is tight, you will also need to consider how quick and easy the chair is to fold and store.
The cost of the highchair will depend on the extras it comes with. Features you may want to look out for include:
- A multi-function highchair, which converts into a separate low chair and table when your baby is a toddler, or can be used as your child grows up.
- Extra padding on the seats.
- Reclining seats.
- Adjustable seat heights.
- Adjustable foot-rest.
- Removable and easy-to-clean seat cover.
- Removable tray for easy cleaning.
- Compact when folded.
