All About High Chairs
When to use a High Chair:
When your baby reaches approximately 4-6 months of age, the time is right for them to be eating their meals sitting in a high chair. More importantly than their age, the factor to consider is when your baby can sit upright without any assistance. If they have been sitting up unaided for several minutes at time, you should try feeding him or her in a high chair for the added benefits and convenience high chairs offer. Ok so now that you know when your baby is ready for a high chair, let’s discuss choosing the right high chair.
Safety and Durability:
The most important thing when choosing the right high chair for your baby is its safety and durability. Look for a high chair with a well-designed and simple to use security strap or harness. This system will make sure your baby will stay in the chair, no matter how much they wiggle and play. Ideally the strap should have a part that goes across the baby`s waist as well as a part that goes between the legs to ensure that the child doesn`t slip down the seat. As you might imagine, mealtimes can be a wriggly affair. Whichever high chair you choose, check that the base of the chair design is significantly wider than the chair itself thus creating a more stable structure - you need to be sure that no matter how much dancing and bouncing goes on, the high chair will stay put exactly where you want it.
Ease of Use:
Also the ease of use must be a factor so ensure that the tray can be effortlessly moved (or even better-removed completely) to allow your baby to be easily put in and taken out of the high chair. Remember you will often need to use this tray mechanism while you are holding your baby, so ease of use is paramount. Your baby will make a much bigger mess than you would ever think was possible! The design and construction of the tray and chair is something that must be carefully looked at too. Even with the most delicate of eaters, the tray and chair will inevitably get covered with food and drink spills. All the surfaces need to be easily reached to be cleaned, with few nooks or crannies that will hide food and cause bacterial build up and smells. You want the padded seat covers to be able to be easily removed and machine washable.
