Your baby is usually ready to use a highchair around six months old, or when they can sit up unaided, although some high chairs are suitable from a younger age if the seat unit reclines. There are various types of highchairs available to suit all budgets and need.
Lightweight Folding Travel Highchairs
These have a folding frame, which makes them ideal for travelling and popping in the back of a car.
Hi-Lo High chairs
Hi-lo highchairs allow you to adjust the height from a conventional highchair position to table level when your toddler is older. Some high chairs have adjustable seat recline, allowing them to be used at a slightly younger age. Other features often include, adjustable footrest, detachable trays, with various positions which grow with your child, padded wipe clean seat units and five point safety harness.
Always ensure your child is securely strapped in to the highchair with the five-point safety harness and never leave your baby alone in high chairs. Also, when making your selection, ensure that the highchair conforms to all current safety standards.
