Top Rated High Chairs

A high chair purchase is a fun one –  it means that your baby is sitting up, ready to eat, and watching the world.  Some of my favorite pictures come from my littles sitting in high chairs!

However, be that as it may, I do have mixed emotions about high chairs.

In some ways, they are amazing. In others, they are tough to keep clean, as food gets wedged in the nooks and crannies, and then you are constantly digging things out.

In fact, we even have a portable high chair seat that we take with us, and in some ways, this seat is even better than buying an actual high chair.

It takes up less room, straps onto an actual chair, and can come with us anywhere.

To help you decide, we have dug up the best and top rated high chairs for your review, and included the pros and cons of each model from Amazon reviewers.

I have made sure that each of these models (according to reviewers) are sturdy, last through multiple children and are considered safe (my daughter managed to tip over her chair in the portable one I just mentioned!).

These are all considerations you should think about before purchasing, and be sure to check out 5 Tips for Eating Out with Toddlers and Babies while you’re at it!
