One piece of equipment that all expectant mothers are going to need is a baby high chair. Even though you are not going to need this particular piece of furniture until the baby is at least six months old, from then on it will be a very important part of daily life for you and your baby. Your baby will probably be fed three times a day in the high chair.
You can find baby high chairs in retail stores and in online stores and there is a world of choice in terms of styles and colours. You can also choose to buy your high chair to match the rest of the furniture in the nursery. The high chair that you choose will be one that you hope is the best and safest for your precious child.
Baby high chairs normally suit babies from the age of six months till about two years old. The baby should be able to sit up on their own before being placed in a high chair and this is usually at six months. The price of baby high chairs can vary quite a bit with the ones with more features being more expensive generally. Some of the features that come with baby high chairs are extra cushioned support, adjustable height, folding legs and reclining chairs.
One of the most important things to check when buying a baby high chair is that it meets the safety standards in your country. It is better to buy a high chair that is sturdy and secure when placed on the floor. You would not want your baby to be able to topple the chair over. There should be a secure harness included with the chair or somewhere to clip one on to.
It is more convenient to have waterproof covers on the high chair because they are easier to keep clean. You can choose high chairs with wipe clean fabric to make sure they are kept in good condition as feeding a small baby can get quite messy and even more so when your baby becomes a toddler and starts to feed himself. Some baby high chairs even come complete with an extra tray that can be removed and placed in a dishwasher.
As long as the baby high chair you choose meets the required safety standards, then it is up to you how much you want to spend. At the end of the day all high chairs should do the same job and that is provide somewhere for you to feed your baby. It will be a bonus if you can afford to buy a high chair with extra features.
