When the little babies start taking solids, that is probably the best time in a parents life. To cook small meals is another kind of pleasant experience any parent can get, but this pleasant experience turns into a rather messy one when you try to feed your child without restricting their approach to the meal; and when toddlers apparently believe they can feed themselves, the high chair is the only place to try to minimize the mess! So, putting them in the high chair makes things easy for everyone, you are the boss remember…(at least for the first few years..)

What Should You Look For When Buying a High Chair?
- Safety is the most important thing in buying a high chair, as falling down from one would not be pleasant for your little one. A strong five-point safety belt is a must and it must look sturdy.
- In my opinion a high chair with a tray is more comfortable and useful, the tray should be wider, but it’s your choice.
- A high chair should be as comfortable as possible with nice big padding to ensure ultimate comfort.
- The height of a baby high chair should be adjustable to several levels.
- Remember, your baby will be spilling their food all over it, so you would want one that is super easy to clean, think: both tray and materials.
- High chairs with wheels are easy to move and are very handy for you when you want to move your baby around whilst you are busy around the home.
- As this is the matter of your baby’s safety as they are elevated to a certain height, we would advise you buy a really good high chair from a reliable brand (hence our list above). Cheaper is not always the better, especially when it comes to ensuring safety for your child.
Other Uses of A High Chair
A high chair is necessary for your child’s protection and safety and makes both eating (whilst playing, of course!) easy, fun and safe for your child and also for yourself.
When I bought a high chair for my first kiddo, I used to put him in it and kept the high chair near me while doing laundry or cleaning. There are countless uses of a high chair; they are not only for the feeding purposes.
A high chair also allows for your child to feel himself when eating with the family at meal times, as they will be on equal level with rest of the family.
