Buying a High Chair That You and Your Baby Will Love!

Remember the big, bulky high chairs that would take up too much space in the corner of a kitchen? Not anymore, as today's high chairs are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Their space-saving properties allow them to take up little space, and some of the newest versions will even blend in well with stainless steel appliances!

Here's what to look for in your new high chair that will maximize space and function, while giving your little one a cozy place to eat.

Removable Trays - The high chair should have a large removable tray that can be tossed in the dishwasher. This makes it easy to keep clean, and the size offers plenty of room for food and a few toys.

Reclining Positions - High chairs don't have to be for eating anymore. Look for those that have added features, such as relaxing tunes and different chair settings that allow baby to relax. Some high chairs can even convert to a swing so baby can have his cake and eat it, too - in the terms of a snack and quick snooze that is!

Conversion Chairs - Spending the dough on a chair that your child will only use for a short time can be hard. So why not invest in something that will last a little longer? Conversion high chairs can convert from a standard high chair, to an infant booster, toddler booster and then a young child's chair.

Swinging Trays - If you're tired of the gliding trays that seem to get stuck all the time, opt for the contemporary swinging style. These trays lift up and swing open, so it doesn't matter where you place them. In an effort to streamline the design, these chairs often come with an easy carry handle for portable use.

Easy Cleaning Properties - No one likes a dirty high chair - not even your messy baby. So look for streamlined designs that won't allow food to get stuck in every groove. Also look for waterproof and tear-resistant materials if the high chair isn't made from plastic.

Five-Point Harness - Five-point harnesses are commonplace in infant products, but not so much in toddler ones. Yet at the rate that kids grow into toddler products and the squirmy nature of their bodies, a five-point harness is never a bad idea. Look for high chairs that offer these harnesses in the toddler position as well.

Comfort - And finally, you want your little one to enjoy sitting and eating, so choose a seat that's comfy for him or her. With reclining positions and a cushiony seat, you can find the optimal position for your little one at his or her stage of eating.

  19. I think this article is absolutely right. There are so many features that high chairs have now that are wonderful; I believe that you must just figure out what you need and what high chair will fit the most for your needs.
