Top 8 High Chairs for Baby

By

Few baby products endure as much use as high chairs. Not only does a high chair need to hold baby securely during mealtime. High chairs also should be easy to clean and have other features that work with your family's lifestyle. Some high chairs are designed to be pushed up to the table, others recline for naps and some have fantastic toys for baby entertainment. The high chairs below are durable, cleanable and have a good mix of the other convenience features available today.

1. Fisher Price - Healthy Care High Chair

The Fisher Price Healthy Care high chair is loaded with convenience features and comes in two patterns - Rainforest and Ocean Wonders. The vinyl cover wipes down easily and can be machine-washed if necessary. The high chair frame is sturdy, can be adjusted to seven heights and folds for storage. The bottom tray can be removed with one hand and the top snack tray is dishwasher safe (though it takes a lot of space). The roomy seat reclines with one hand to three positions. Some models have fun toys, too.

You can use the chair booster for one child while using the high chair for another child, so this might be a great choice for grandma's house, or for places that might need lots of seating options for different kids. Graco's Blossom high chair is stylish and fairly lightweight, and it costs about $200.

The sleek, modern design of the Svan high chair is definitely eye-catching, and the gorgeous wood tones will coordinate with many home interiors. More importantly, though, this is a comfy high chair that will grow with your child. You can adjust the high chair by height and width to give baby a comfortable fit. When your baby grows into a toddler, you can take off the tray and use the Svan chair at the table. It even becomes a chair suitable for adults, so you won't need to relegate this high chair to the basement in a few years. About $275 (with infant pads).

It's a bit pricey at around $200, but it doesn't lack for convenience features or style. The base has hidden wheels that glide around effortlessly and lock into place with a step-button on the base. The one-piece seat has no seams to trap food, so you can wipe it easily and thoroughly. The removable foam pad won't soak up messes, either.

If your baby likes to relax after a big meal, the Prima Pappa high chair is like the big, cushy recliner of the high chair world. The height-adjustable base has locking caster wheels for portability. I like that there's just one big rear brake on the casters. Although the high chair is pretty big when ready for use, it folds surprisingly small. The sleek Italian design will appeal to style-conscious parents looking for a high chair that blends with home decor. Seven height adjustments, four recline positions and two dishwasher-safe trays add convenience. Priced from $175-$250.

Not only does it come in some fantastic color combinations and patterns, you get two pads with the high chair for easy clean-up and added style. The Chicco Polly has seven height adjustments and three seat recline positions. This high chair folds easily, plus the armrests and seat tilt and the tray hangs on the back for an even more compact fold. The center post is on the bottom of the tray on this high chair, which means the tray doesn't lay flat on a table post-feeding.
