The Lowdown on High Chairs

High chairs are typically designed for use from infancy to three years of age, with a top weight limit of around 50 pounds. Here are some important factors to consider when shopping:

Safety First
Safety features are a top consideration. Look for these main components: A crotch post; a safety-restraint system with a five-point harness; wheels that lock in place (or a chair that doesn’t have wheels); and if it’s a folding high chair, make sure it won’t pinch your fingers when closing.

Style and Design
From conventional to contemporary, high chairs come in a range of decor enhancing styles. Some are functional-adjustable trays with dishwasher-safe inserts make for quick cleanup; seats that recline to multiple positions are handy when bottle-feeding, and chair heights that accommodate your growing baby are a plus. (Height adjustment can be equally convenient for the parent; you can lower the high chair seat to match your chair, allowing you to sit while feeding the baby.) Others are downright practical-such as high chairs that convert to booster chairs when your child is ready to sit at the table. If space is tight, consider a chair that folds or has a smaller footprint.

Assembly and Returns
You might not know what high chair will best suit your child until you try it. Keep your receipt or packing slip. If you receive a high chair as a gift, ask that a gift receipt be included. Some high chairs require assembly and can come with more parts than you might expect, or can be tricky to put together. If you’re not handy, you might want to buy a high chair that comes fully assembled.
