Choosing the best high chair for a baby or toddler can be a challenge. Whether you’re looking for a premium high chair that can accommodate a baby and toddler at the same time, a space saver high chair or a portable high chair, my 2018 high chair review has you covered.
First, I can’t tell you enough how important it is to choose a high chair that works for your family, lifestyle and dining area. Your high chair will become a staple of your home, and your child will spend countless hours trying new food, learning to use utensils and making a mess in their high chair.
During my work in the childcare industry, I had exposure to a lot of different types of high chairs, and many were well suited for their perspective families. If you have the space or more than one child, you may want to consider a premium high chair that converts from baby to big kid and offers additional seating for an older sibling. If you are looking for a space saving chair, you may want a high chair that can be placed on an existing chair. For outings, you should consider a travel high chair.
Here are my favorite chairs in each category as well as a links to where you can buy them or add them to your baby registry on Amazon.
