High Chair

When your baby is big enough to sit, they can join the rest of the family at the dining table. It’s time to consider getting a baby high chair!

This is such a lovely and fun time for the whole family to spend quality time together, often for a few times during the day, to enjoy a meal and bond with each other. Your baby will love the experience just as much as you do. As they’re raised up to a higher height, it’s easier for them to see you and the world around them. They’ll even be able to discover parts of the room that they probably hadn’t noticed before. Now that your baby is able to sit unassisted, they can comfortably and securely sit in their highchair and take in their surroundings. Always be sure that your child is always secured in the highchair by the restraining system.

Feeding time might be a little messy in the early weeks but it’s also an opportunity for you and your baby to experience an exciting new stage together and enjoy watching them investigate new foods and learn how to eat. Our baby high chair range has options that will work for all families and homes.

 

What to look for when purchasing a toddler high chair

With so many options available, it can be tricky knowing where to start! When browsing for a baby high chair, it’s important to note that you’ll need one that can transition with your baby as they grow. Otherwise, you may end up needing another chair for that in-between period between a high chair and a normal dining chair.

The key things to look for when you buy a high chair are back support and foot support. Dangling feet can be a huge distraction for your baby during meal times and can potentially cause harm if they’re squirming and trying to move out from the high chair. Adequate back support allows your baby to sit up close to their food and minimises the strain put on their backs. High chairs all come down to the support, and it’s important to find one that can sit your baby comfortably.

So, whether you’re looking for a specific size, weight or material, or a feature to make your life easier, we have you covered with our various types of highchairs.

PRODUCT RANGE

Your choice of seat includes a high chair or booster seat or one that caters for both options.

Here are some of the things to ask yourself, to clarify exactly what is important to you when buying a high chair.

This will help you decide which one is perfect for you, your home and your baby.

What colour and style are you looking for? Are you looking for a specific style of chair that will suit your home or blend in with its decor, such as timber or a specific colour?

Many high chairs suit modern and traditional homes and are available in either timber or Scandinavian style, white or grey to enhance the look of your home as well as be practical.

 

How comfortable is it?

A comfortable and contoured seat can help your baby remain supported and relaxed during meal times and for added comfort, seat pads might be available too to provide extra cushioning as they sit.

A comfortable high chair or seat will keep your child happy during mealtimes which allows them to get down to the important task of focusing on their meal. Win/win for them and you!

 

How easy is it to clean?

A high chair that is easy to wipe down and clean after use is essential as during meal times babies have a special talent for making a mess! Trying to unclog nooks and crannies stuffed with food is time-consuming so look for a chair that has easy to clean surfaces.

Some high chairs have removable trays that are even dishwasher safe.

 

Will it grow with your child?

A high chair that adjusts and grows with your growing child is a great investment piece.

You can remove trays and raise or lower seats and footrests so that your child remains comfortable as they get older and grow bigger.

Removing the tray can also help to pull the high chair up right next to your dining table, so that your child can eat from there and really feel a part of the family at meal times.

 

How easy is it to use?

A lightweight chair that is easy to assemble and move around the room will make life much easier. Some chairs can also disassemble when not in use or to save space in your home.

Check that the chair feels safe, secure and sturdy and has harnesses that will keep your child strapped in safely as they dine.

By answering these questions, you’ll have a much clearer idea of the factors to consider when choosing the best high chair for your child.

 

High Chair FAQs

 

What is the best high chair for toddlers?

Look for a high chair that is ergonomic and suits the needs of your child. Toddlers can grow fast, and it’s important that they’re in a chair with adequate support for their back and feet.

 

At what age can a baby sit in a high chair?

Wait until your baby can sit up comfortably. Most experts recommend not using a high chair until your baby is at least six months of age, but this can vary with each child. Your baby may be ready for a high chair a little earlier or a little later. 

 

Do you really need a high chair?

While your baby is still drinking from a bottle, they won’t need a high chair straight away - but they will need a place to eat. High chairs are generally recommended for use from six months of age, and can often be used for many years to come. Plus, it allows your baby to join it on the fun at the dinner table, which is great for their growth and development.

 

Are high chairs bad for babies?

As with all products, it’s important that you follow the manufacturer’s recommendations, and seek advice from a professional if you’re unsure. You’ll want your baby safely strapped into a high chair to suit their height and weight, with adequate back and foot support.

 

Does a 2-year-old need a high chair?

There is no specific age recommendation for moving out of a high chair. Some brands have high chairs that are adjustable and can grow with your child. If your child is unable to sit comfortably on a dining chair, or there is not enough support, then it may be worth keeping them in a high chair until they’re ready.

 

When should a child be out of a high chair?

Generally, children will be ready to transition from a high chair between 18 months and three years of age. Depending on their height, you may need to purchase an extra seat during this transition period before they’re ready for a normal dining chair.
