Best High Chairs and Booster Seats 2023

33 Shares

Highchairs have become SO much more than just a simple, old-school raised seat. They’ve now become amazingly stylish and comfortable weaning thrones for babies and toddlers – far from anything you want to hide away in the kitchen corner. Here are all our tips on what to consider when buying a high chair, along with 7 of our top picks for the best high chairs and booster seats across 2023!

What to look for when buying a high chair or booster seat

  • Easy to store: if you don’t have the space to keep a high chair out all of the time, you’re going to have to consider how big it is, even when folded. A compact fold helps reduce its footprint, assisting in squeezing it into tight storage spaces.
  • Style: Nothing is going to stick out more in your dining space than a ghastly-looking high chair. And if it’s truly awful, you’ll rue the day you bought it every time you see it. So if interior design and aesthetics are important to you, pick a high chair you love the look of – you’re going to be looking at it in your home for a reasonably long time!
  • Secure harness: Chances are, your baby or toddler will try to escape their high chair on their own at least once – it’s as though such antics are in their DNA. Look for an adjustable, secure three or five-point harness and always, always buckle your little one in.
  • Ease of cleaning: This is a big factor to consider. Cleaning your child’s seat is child’s play when you’re in control of the spoon, but for baby-led weaning and toddlers, all bets (and bibs) are off. Your high chair or booster seat will be often encrusted with crumbs, dried food or slippery sauces and squashed matter. Moulded seats are far easier to clean than pesky crevices and dishwasher-safe parts are life savers!
  • Longevity: If you’re buying your very first high chair or booster seat and you plan on having more children, buy a high chair to grow with your family. Something that suits young babies, right through to larger toddlers or can be turned into booster seats or cool furniture between children. Modern designs will blow your mind with some of their transformations.

High chairs can be handy even before weaning

It’s not always safe to leave your baby at floor level with rambunctious siblings (or pets) also in the room. A reclining high chair with a baby seat can be an absolute sanity saver, avoiding accidents and providing the reassurance busy mums need that their baby is safe in that after-school or dinner-making chaos!
