High Chairs Buying Guide
How To Choose the Right High Chair
If you’ve ever struggled to find a comfortable position to eat in at the dinner table, you know how your kid feels. Purchasing a good high chair for baby or toddler is one of the wisest investments you can make as a parent. Since baby will be using the chair whenever he or she can sit up properly (typically anywhere from 4 to 5 months, but it can be as early as 2 to 3 months) until they are about two years old, you will want to buy a high chair with seating wide enough they can “grow” into but not too wide.

Other High Chair Buying Tips
Determine in which room the high chair will be used the most. If it’s a small sized room, consider a compact or folding high chair like the Fisher Price High Chair Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair model
When space isn’t a concern, consider purchasing a high chair that your child can use when into the toddler years.
The high chair should sit on the floor perfectly level. It should also be well-made; have perfectly smooth edges; and be constructed of materials that are easy to keep clean.
Any hardware such as wheels, straps, etc. should be easy for you to use.
