 High Chair Recommendations ...


I'm having trouble trying to decide on a high chair. Space isn't an issue b/c we have a big kitchen where the high chair will stay. I've been looking at the Boon, then thinking maybe a wood chair would be good (MIL has one and N loves it) or should I just do a basic graco one? There's like a million to choose from .... help!

I have the cheap $25 Ikea one and I love it. DS sits in it happily and it's super easy to clean.

I have a really basic Cosco one bought for $25 at a garage sale. It serves the purpose nicely

I have wooden ones - they're Keekaroo Right Height chairs. Love the looks, love the idea, hate the execution (hard to clean).

There are a few different ones in the TRU flyer.

I have a wooden one at the cottage that was mine and then went through a bunch of cousins and made its way back to me again for my ODD and now YDD. It is by far the easiest thing to clean and if it gets ugly looking very easy to refinish and it looks brand new again.

I have the IKEA one, too, although DD is eating yet. She just sits there while we eat so she can be included. The only thing I don't like is that the tray doesn't easily pop off. It's kind of hard to strap her in, but for $25 it isn't a big deal.

We have the Lux one that is in the BRU flyer this week only in a different pattern as we bought it from Costco. I love that it will fold flat when not in use.

We also have the FP healthy care booster that we take with us when we go out to our parent's or friends places.

In retrospect I wouldn't get a high chair but a chair that sits on one of our dining room chairs (either a booster type or one that's similar to a high chair but with a tray on it KWIM?). But we have a pretty small house so I guess that's a factor for me too.

FWIW, we have a Svan Chair - stupid expensive but it looks pretty cool (IMO) and doesn't take up a whole lot of room.

I have an evenflo one. I hate it. too many crevices for food to get into. Fabric cover is nice to be able to throw it in the washer, but it's gross untill we do.

Once YDS is better at sitting I'm selling mine and buying an ikea one. I've used them at other places and they're great.

We have this one and I LOOVVEEEEE it!

I like that it just straps to one of our kitchen chairs and doesn't take up alot of space, it has a few different reclining positions which we use alot, it swivels which is great (I didn't think we'd use this but we use it ALL the time), and it also turns into a booster for when DS is older!

We have the Stokke Tripp Trapp. It was a bit tricky to put DD in it at the beginning, but we are getting much better. It doesn't have a try but it goes right up to the table. I love it! And DD seems to really like it, too. It was pricey though.

We have the IKEA one too. Love it as it is so easy to clean off after DS has dumped his food all over it. We liked it so much that we actually got a second one to keep and grandma and grandpa's place.

We have the FP Healthy Care Booster...its one that just straps onto any dining room chair. I love it, doesn't take up any space at all and DS seems to love eating at the table with us (although we do sometimes use the tray instead of the table if he's eating something really messy). Its also entirely plastic so I can take it outside and hose it off if its really dirty which is really nice.
