Now here’s a sleek high chair pick your friends will be asking about! This stylish seat is a bit pricier than some, but the modern style statement it makes is so worth it. The base fits easily under the table so baby feels like she’s part of mealtime, and you can adjust the height easily with your foot. Best of all, this high chair is completely seamless … you won’t find a single spot where crumbs or messes will be trapped.
This chair is a unique option: First designed in 1972, the Tripp Trapp grows with your child (even a 300-pound adult could sit in it!). Though it’s not for babies under 6 months because it doesn’t recline, it does allow older babies to sit right at the table with the rest of the family since there’s no tray. The iconic seat actually comes with a guide that helps you best position the seat and footplate based on your child’s age.
The Tripp Trapp is made from solid wood and water-based nontoxic paint, and it is free of harmful substances such as phthalates and bisphenol. You can also pick up accessories, such as a cushion, to customize the seat. Down the road, the footrest serves as a ladder so your little one can seat himself. When you no longer need a high chair, it converts into an adult chair or a stool.
From the company that brings you some of your favorite strollers comes this sweet seat: the Foodoo high chair, designed for little foodies from birth up to age 4. The swanky padded leatherette seat is extra soft and comfy, and it features an adjustable 5-point harness for safety. You can easily adjust the height, recline, and even footrest for maximum comfort.
You can easily wipe the seat clean, and the tray is dishwasher-safe. The rubber wheels make it easy to move this chair from room to room, and you can fold the seat using one hand. Talk about convenient!
Not only is this high chair completely adorable, but it also adapts to your children’s needs as they grow! Once the high chair years are over, you simply remove a set of legs and the Poppy becomes a cute chair for the kiddos.
As a high chair, this seat has everything you need: a passive harness to keep your child safely seated as well as an additional 5-point safety harness; a large food tray that you can remove for cleaning; and a hypoallergenic, non-toxic seat with zero seams for quick and easy cleaning. It’s also lightweight and easy to store in a small space when you remove the legs.
Regardless of the high chair you choose, ensure that it accommodates your baby’s height and weight so that they don’t slip and slide during meal time. And don’t forget to look for easy-to-clean features! Messes are inevitable with a baby, especially when they eat, so be properly prepared with an easy-to-clean high chair.
