A Best Baby High Chair is an important piece of furniture when your kid comes of age where he needs to sit upright and be fed. During the feeding time, kids usually tend to throw tantrums and do not want to eat. With a high chair, you do not need to scrotch down and go through a lot of trouble.

With a 5 point safety harness system, the high chair keeps the baby safe and secure. Also, this high chair comes with a food tray that can be adjusted in 3 different positions depending on how comfortable the baby is to dine as they grow bigger. This tray is removable and detached, thus making it very easy for cleaning purposes.
The legs, the tray and even the backrest can be detached and folded for easy storage and carrying it from one place to another. And as the product is made with high-quality European standards, the quality of the materials used is assured along with its portable nature.

Next up on our list is the Kurtzy Kids Foldable High chair which could surprisingly, support the weight of about 50 kgs. No worries of it breaking any time soon.
The quality of the chair is attributed to its build material as it is made out of high grade aluminium. While this is the outer frame, the inner sitting area is padded well with high quality foam covered with rexine cover. The foot rest (with metal frame and cushion padding) will give the baby a place to rest their feet. It makes a comfortable tiny sofa for your little one.

Buying Guide: How to pick the Right High Chair?
While you are buying a high chair online is easy as all you do is look at the reviews, find out the features and about the products, chat with the support and make a choice. But the same is not the case with buying these high chairs offline.
Whether you are buying such toddler furniture online or offline, you need to look at certain important factors which will affect the quality of the product. It is really important for you to look for these because you will be placing your very little toddler on these chairs and hence they have to be really safe and strong. Now initially look at the important factors that contribute to the quality of a baby high chair.
1. Types of Baby High Chair
First of all, you need to know that there are various different types of baby high chairs depending on their material,look, design and type of operation. Depending on these, they are classified into the following types.
a) Metal or Plastic Frame Highchair – These models have a simple and minimalist design and usually feature a food tray. These models are lightweight, inexpensive and portable.
b) Full-Feature Highchair – This model comes with comfortable padded seat, detachable food tray, wheels, reclining seat, adjustable leg height and some models can be converted to a booster seat.
- Portable and hook-on Highchair – This is a highly functional model that attaches to the table or latches on to the regular dining-room chair. This portable model is ideal for travelling.
2. Comfort of the chair to the baby
When it comes to baby high chairs, comfort refers to the amount of padding the chair has on all sides of the inside. That is, the bottom, the backrest and the arm rests too. By default, children are known fidget a lot and when they are placed in a confined space, this fidgetiness increases.
In areas where there is a lot of cushioning, babies will calm down and enjoy the soft and tender padding. They will relax and let you feed them. Also, when it comes to comfort, also make sure that the tray used is soothing and does not have any sharp edges. More on the tray, soon.
It is best to opt for a model that comes with generously padded seat and sturdy footrest. The seat as well as the food tray should not have any sharp edges.
3. Safety Harness
The high chair you choose must have a 5-point or 3-point harness and crotch post to prevent your child from slipping or standing up. The harness straps should be adjustable in order to accommodate the growing baby.
This is important because the harness will safeguard your baby whether you are around or not. A weak harness can be easily unbuckled and may end up leading to the child slipping and falling down and harming the child . Also, make sure that these harnesses are either fiber or plastic. Because a metal harness is a big no as it could be potentially threatening to the baby. Be wise while choosing anything as such.
4. Feeding Tray
Most high chairs come with either a fixed or detachable food trap that can accommodate plates, bowls, cups and bottles used by the baby. It will not only help you place the food containers for feeding, but they also act as a security barrier for the child. Even with the harness, there is a slight chance the baby might topple to the front. A feeding tray prevents any such fall and at times, even prevent such occurrences.
These trays also need to be easily detachable from the chairs. There are many models with different detachable ways. A few have a press button to the bottom while a few are simply slide based, Small babies are not smart enough to understand the button so it is completely safe for them to use a tray which is button removal. For bigger kids, use the press lock system of movable tray..
Also, apart from the cushioning impact and the removability, you have to look and consider about the edges of the tray used on the chair. Sharp edges again have a potential threat of hurting your baby whenever he/she tends to bang their fists or play around with the tree. Which is why a rounded corner tray is the best fit.Considering all of these factors and their purpose, pick a tray that is strong, yet non sharp edges and also has an appealing colour for the kid to like it.
5. Ease of Cleaning up
A high chair can get messy. The tantrums kids throw when we try to feed them are too noisy and messy. If only you had a dime for every time the chair is spotless clean after a meal, you would still be dimeless.
Cleaning up a high chair could be a task. But it is not if you choose a chair that is easier to clean and tidy up. Try finding a high chair made out of easy cleaning material . When you do so, you can easily clean up the chair immediately after every use. Either by wiping it clean with a wet cloth or a dry/wet sponge. For fluffy and soft materials, you can even go ahead and wash it clean under a tap. This brings us to the next important point
6. Material used in the making of the high chair.
The frame of the high chair would obviously be fibre, plastic, metal and at a few instances, wood; it is the outer shell that is foremost important. The material which covers up and cushions the kid should be
- Breathable: So that the kid will not feel any sorts of suffocation or perspire a lot when he is made to sit on that.
- Enough cushioning: so that it will provide enough comfort to the kid as he or she sits around most of the time.
- Easy to clean: You should be able to easily clean up the material when something is spilled. Could be wiped and the material should be washable as you will be taking it for a tap run every other fortnight just to be sure.
The frame of the high chair needs to be strong enough to hold the body weight of the body and have an appealing design and curves. That is it. For this, you should be focussing on strong fibre or plastic bodies. Wooden chairs are retro and at times impractical. Metal chairs too, are retro and they could be a bit unsafe at times. What if the metal could pierce out and hurt the baby? Do not take any chances.
7. Height and Comfort Adjustability
High chairs are not always of fixed length (wood chairs are an exception. They are carved for specific heights). A single height is not suitable for every type of table height. This makes it important that we have a chair whose height can be adjusted as per the requirement.
For every chair, there exists a feature that will aid in the changing and adjustment of the height of the chair and the tray. Choose a chair which has a longer height adjustment range. Typically 1 or 2 meters long pole length. As the kid grows and becomes big, you can adjust the height of the chair accordingly.
Some high-end high chairs can be converted into booster seat or kid’s study table and chair as your kid grows older.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Now that we have cleared all of the innate doubts, let us move on to the Questions frequently asked by other parents like you on the internet. Questions such as…
1. Is my baby ready for using a high chair?
When a kid comes of about the age of 4 or 6 months, he/she will be able to sit upright and take solid foods. Here, the baby might find trouble sitting on a conventional chair/sofa or a kitchen stool (which is dangerous. Never let your kid on a kitchen stool with no back support).
At this point, a need for a high chair with ample amounts of support is a must. You will now be looking not just for a simple chair that will accommodate your kid, but for something that will fit your kid for the next foreseeable future. That is, babies grow, and the chair should be able to accommodate the growing baby irrespective of their size.
2. Is the chair easy to use?
Getting your kid in or out of the chair is a huge concern. This is so because as a parent, one of your hand would always be busy no matter what and you will end up juggling to handle the baby with the other hand. Hence easy usage of the chair is important.
Thus, before you step out to shop for a chair, look around your fellow parent’s choices. They must have already bought a chair and are using it. Ask them how easy is their chair to use. Now when you get to the store, try out a few chairs and see which ones are easy to handle with a single hand.
Also look for how the safety simple buckles of the chair are. A vast number of high chair accidents happen due to parents not knowing how to use the buckle on the chair. It is an important safety chair, because once the kid is big enough to understand and pick the buckle, he/she may fall down getting injured. One needs to think of all choices. Pick something with 3 or 5 points harness. This should be safe.
3. Is the chair certified for following safety standards and regulations
Baby products are sensitive in nature. A parent finds a lot of assurance when the product that they are about to buy for their kid is certified in one way or the other. Generally, kids high chairs follow either of the two following certified standards.
For chairs made in the United States of America, Canada and Mexico, they need to have a JPMA certification (Juvenile Product Manufacturer’s Association) which certifies the standards used for the product.
Elsewhere, you have the european standards. Typically, look for products which have the EU standards EN 14988-1 or EN 14988-2 both from 2006. A standard as such or higher could be labelled as a quality product.
4. At what age can a baby sit upright in a restaurant in a high chair?
Front facing strollers and highchairs are ok to use for babies when they are about the age of 6 months old or higher. A few babies even are able to stand upright at 4 months of age. As for the restaurant query, even though they may have a dedicated chair, it is unwise to let the kid sit on their chair as you are unsure of their hygiene and how clean the chair is.
5. At which age can a baby sit in shopping cart?
About 6 months. Same age as it takes for them to be able to sit up right and roll over without any support. They will steadily be able to sit in a shopping cart which, by the way, kids enjoy to ride on.
6. Can you put your three months old baby on a high chair?
No. Not if the kid cannot sit upright. For the first few months (at the least 4 months) a toddler needs constant supervision from his/her guardian/parent. Maybe when the kid in a few months, when he is able to roll around and get up on his own, he/she can be able to use the high chair.
7. Do baby high chairs come with an expiration date?
No! Baby high chairs do not expire. Infact, you can safely use a seat from a previous child or a well known friend or relative for your kid if and only if the seat is been used no less than siz years. The material used in such tends to get damaged post 6 months. Baby car seats have a similar case too. And often than not, baby car seats come with an expiration date printed on the label or the crimp of the material along with its manufacturer model number and name.
