A high chair should be robust, stable enough to withstand movements and heavy use, and is easy to clean. Some chairs are specially designed for primary use at home as well as for on the go. Some parents look for chairs that can adapt to different sizes, as the baby grows quickly and starts feeling uncomfortable in a fixed chair. The best way to decide what chair would suit your needs best is by testing the models on the spot. You don’t want to purchase a chair and then regret it. High chairs come in a variety of styles, designs, and prices. You can get your money’s worth when you purchase a mid-priced high chair as it offers the best features and styles. The safety features that come at this price are often the same as those found in high-priced high chairs.

High chairs are designed and created for use for babies and kids up to 3 years old. It has a weight limit of 50 pounds (around 23kg). With so many high chairs in the market, buying one can seem overwhelming, which is why you should consider essential factors that before finalising purchasing decision.

Safety always comes first

Safety features should always be the first thing you should consider. The key components you should look for are a crotch post; a 5-point harness safety system and wheels that can lock in place.

Design and style of the chair

High chairs come in a variety of designs, whether it’s contemporary or conventional; they all have the same purpose. Many high chairs are functional as they have adjustable trays, reclining seats, height adjustment functionality as this is very important for the baby and parent safety-wise and much other advanced functionality. Booster chairs are also very practical considering the kid is growing up and ready to sit at the table.

Easy assembly

Figuring out what high chair will suit your child best can only be done by trying it out first. If you try it, then you know whether it’s the right fit for your child or not. Always keep the receipt as many high chairs come with a lot of parts that might be too tricky for you to assemble, which is why you can always buy a chair that is fully assembled.

Types of High Chairs

Metallic or plastic frame or plastic-frame high chairs

These are the simplest models ever made. Some are moulded plastic attached to harnesses; the rest have added padding on the seat. Some chairs come with fixed trays, and others come with separate trays. Both of them are usually affordable and lightweight, which makes it easy to move around and store. But they aren’t as comfortable for the baby as others are.

Full-feature high chairs

These are the same as the basic metal and plastic chairs, but they have more advanced features like detachable trays, comforted padding, adjustable height, and reclining seats. They can easily convert into a booster chair as well.

Portable and hook-on high chairs

Many parents opt for a seat that attaches to the straps of a regular chair. These hook-on chairs save up a lot on space and cost less than high chairs. They’re also portable and useful to carry around and travel. These chairs don’t work on every regular seat, though.

Wooden high chairs

Wooden high chairs look attractive but aren’t very practical. The seat can be too deep and too low for a baby. The trays are made of wood and therefore heavier than plastic.

What to look for when buying?

Type: The type will depend on your needs and taste. The attention to space and size is really important. Some chairs also turn into a booster seat for when your child is older.

Tray: You definitely want to go for an option that detaches easily and fits in the dishwasher or sink while cleaning. They are a more versatile option.

Ease of cleaning: Make sure the chair can be easily cleaned. The tray, frame, and harness should be easy to wipe and remove.

Adjustability: height adjustment is necessary in a high chair so that your child isn’t uncomfortable or squeezed up into a place.

Stability: Make sure the chair has a wide base as wide bases don’t tip over easily. Check by shaking the chair for stability.

Comfort: Padded seats are so much comfier and softer on the baby’s bottom. A footrest is also an important feature to have for much older kids. Make sure there are no sharp edges on the seat that could hurt the child.

Safety harness: A highchair should always come with a 5-point harness and crotch post, to prevent your baby from slipping or standing. Make sure the buckle is simple and fixed. The buckle shouldn’t be too tight on the baby’s tummy and cause any discomfort.

Wheels: Wheels make moving the high chair so much easier. Make sure the wheels can lock into their places as well to avoid accidents.

Safety standards: A Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) certification seal should always be visible on the packaging of the high chair.
