Baby High Chair Buying Guide
Once your baby is eating solid food, you will want to consider purchasing a high
chair. They are better than booster style seats where your child sits at the
table because they can be used for smaller children of a younger age and usually
help to confine messes to a smaller area. Some models are adjustable to a near
horizontal feeding position allowing you to begin using them even while baby is
still bottle feeding. Then you can adjust them to a more upright sitting
position as baby grows. Some features to consider in any high chair include:
- Safety restraints, either harness or safety bar type
that limit baby's movement and prevent standing up or slipping out beneath the
tray. Adjustable footrests also help keep your baby securely in the chair.
- An adjustable, easy to clean tray. As a rule, plastic
trays are easier to clean and more durable than wood. Removable trays must lock
into position when in use.
- Comfortable, easy to clean padding. Remember that
feeding can be messy so you'll want padding and covers that are removable and
either wipe clean or are machine washable.
- A wide base is desirable to prevent tipping. If you
select a high chair with wheels or casters, be sure they have brakes to hold the
chair securely in place when in use.
- Overall size. If space is a concern, many combination
plastic and aluminum models fold flat for storage. These should always have a
locking mechanism to prevent collapse while your baby is in the chair.
Generally, wooden high chairs are not collapsible but may offer a wider base and
more stability than folding models. They are usually of more solid construction
with fewer moving parts than plastic and metal designs.
- Some high chairs are ready to use out of the box while
others require assembly. It might be worth paying a little extra for a
pre-assembled model if your not mechanically inclined.
As with all baby
products, make sure the high chair you buy conforms to all current safety
