Types of Baby High Chairs Available

The first thing you should do before shopping is familiarize yourself with the different types of high chairs available.

There are four main types:

Full-size high chairs

Suitable from 6 months onward, full-size high chairs are great because they provide the most stable surface for your baby to eat their meals. The sturdy frame allows them to pull themselves up and maintain good posture without you having to worry about tipping or slipping. Plus, they come with adjustable height and footrests so your child can comfortably sit in the chair as they grow.

Portable high chairs

These are great for parents who travel often or eat out regularly with their family. Portable models can be folded up and transported easily, so you can bring your baby’s chair anywhere with you. They also come with adjustable straps to ensure your little one is snugly secured in the chair.

Booster seats

These are suitable from around age 3 and above, when your child can sit up without support. Boosters provide an extra lift so that your child can comfortably fit in at the table with adults. They come with straps for added security and most have adjustable height settings so they will grow along with your child.

Hook-on table chairs

These nifty little designs hook directly onto the table so theyre great for taking out and about with you. They also provide added security with adjustable straps and are suitable for babies as young as 6 months old.

Depending on your needs, lifestyle and budget, any of these may be suitable options.

When choosing a baby high chair it is important that it meets all safety requirements. Look out for features such as adjustable straps and buckles that keep your child securely in place.

It should also have at least one tray; this will help contain messes during mealtime.

Additionally, make sure that you check how easy it is to clean and keep sanitized after every use; this will ensure that your little one is eating in a hygienic environment.

Consider the space that you have at home for where the chair will go and where it will be stored to help you figure out which type is best for you and baby.
