The Definitive Guide to Buying a High Chair
How to find what’s best for your baby
Styles and Features
You’ll want to consider these additional factors when selecting your child’s high chair:
- Wood, plastic, and metal
- Wrap-around, adjustable, and second trays
- Built-in toys and toy bars
- One-hand folding
Two popular choices in high chair materials are plastic and wood. Some moms prefer the look of wood, which may blend in better with their kitchen décor; other mothers prefer the easy cleanup of plastic. Metal chairs are also available offering durability in construction.
Trays come with a variety of options, including wrap-around and adjustable designs. Others even offer a removable second tray (which fits into an outer tray) that can be cleaned in a dishwasher, or more manageable for washing in the sink. Some trays have built-in toys, and others offer a removable toy bar perfect for distracting baby while you’re making dinner.
Additionally, some chairs have an easy-fold system so that after dinner you can tuck your high chair away.
