Tips on buying a highchair

When it comes to buying a high chair for your child there are several factors you must take into consideration including how easy it is to clean, your childs comfort, how to store the high chair (does it fold away), stability and price.


I have two children and for me the most important factor is by far how easily the high chair can be cleaned. I tend to lean towards chairs with machine washable trays. The chair we use is from Fisher Price and is a dream when it comes time to clean up. Here is a link to the product -

Next you should consider the comfort of your child. Look for a high chair with a cushion/padding on the seat. Your child will be sitting in the high chair for every meal so you should invest in a comfortable chair.


You should also consider ways in which you can store your childs high chair when not in use. If you do not have a lot of extra space, you may want to look for something that can fold up and be stored away.


Stability and safety are extremely crucial factors in selecting a high chair. Look for chairs with a wide base for immovability. I recommend finding a chair with secure waist and middle straps to ensure that your child is properly restrained.


Lastly, you will need to consider price. Find something that incorporates all of these features with your budget.

Why should I get my son a booster seat? Is it not ok to transition from a high chair to a regular table chair?


Booster seats offer several great advantages. First and foremost is safety. Most booster seats are designed with a safety belt securing both your child to the seat and the seat to the chair. I also believe that booster seats are a great learning tool. They will help teach your child how to sit properly at a table with much more freedom than a highchair and less accidents than an "adult" chair.

I know I want to buy a classic wooden high chair for my little girl but I don't really know what factors to take into consideration. Can anyone be of assistance?


I would be more than happy to help. When buying a classic high chair it is important to focus on the basics. Is the chair comfortable? Most high chairs come with a cushioned seat. Is it durable? Since most are made from wood/plastic it will most likely be durable. What kind of portability will this high chair offer? Some high chairs are designed to fold up for easy storage. How easy is it to clean? Most classic high chairs have vinyl seats allowing ease when it comes time to clean up. Last and most important, is it safe?

What is the difference between a standard high chair and a classic high chair?


A standard high chair is usually made out of heavy-duty plastic and is sold with many features such as height adjustability, reclining seats, and dishwasher-safe trays. Classic high chairs are quite durable, comfortable, and easy to maintain.
