A guide to buying baby chairs

A baby chair is essential for families who have an infant or toddler because he constantly needs to be monitored, fed, allowed to play safely while sitting or just to be with the rest of the family at dinner time. Learn about the features of a suitable highchair and how to buy them.

Features of a good high chair

Height Baby chairs are usually highchairs which allow parents and babies to see eye-to-eye, not too low that the parent or caregiver has to bend over, or too high for the regular table top. Its height should not allow the baby to get his feet onto the edge of the table and to push himself away, causing the high baby chair to tip over. Stability The baby chair should have a wide base, so that it cannot tip over, even if the baby moves or tries to get out of it. Portable An ideal baby chair can be easily moved from the kitchen to the dining area when everyone else is sharing a meal. A folding highchair which is made of lightweight material is ideal for propping the baby anywhere around the house, and can easily be put away when not needed. Some models have castors or wheels, so you don’t have to carry or lift it to change position. Safety features Many chairs have seat belts in the form of a five-point restraint system, and a crotch guard which can prevent the baby from slipping out. Safety features should comply with the F2613-09 Safety Standards for High Chairs as certified by the American Society for Testing and Materials. A convenient foot rest will help to support the baby instead of allowing his feet to dangle. Easy to clean Depending on the materials used on the seat, back and tray, the ease in cleaning may vary for different models. Many mothers prefer plastic chairs which are easy to clean. Detachable trays with spill-resistant rims can also be conveniently cleaned or washed. Adjustable Some baby chairs can be adjusted in terms of height and can be reclined when the baby needs to be bottle-fed. Some can accommodate children from four months to two years of age with only a few adjustments.
