What logistical and safety factors are important in selecting a high chair?

by Marc W. Owner


Inspect the safety harness of your chair. Look for its ability to be cleaned, and if you are obtaining a gently used high chair, be sure that the straps are intact. The use of the safety harness is the number one factor to ensure safety.

If you decide not to use the straps, make sure that your baby cannot get out of the high chair.

Consider a chair that is easy to wipe down and clean. Food tends to get stuck in small crevices. 

Before purchasing a new high chair, measure the height of your kitchen table, as some high chairs are pretty short. 

Bring the high chair to the table and get your baby as close to the table as possible from the beginning. We want your child to feel part of the meal experience - not eating off in a corner.

Does the high chair have a removable and tray? This is a great feature because as your baby gets older you can slide her chair directly up to the table. This also eliminates the need to convert to a booster. Our favorite chair that does this is the Beyond Junior wooden high chair.

Safety: The abiie’s wooden high chair offering a 5 point safety harness and soft cushion to provide a comfortable and safe seating solution during mealtime for your child under 3 years old. Safety belt help to keep your child seated properly. When used with the included tray, the abiie high chair is JPMA certified to the highest ASTM standards for children up to 3 years old. This chair promotes proper posture and offers excellent seating ergonomics.

Portability: The chair has a nice, small footprint, at around 470 square inches. When pushed in, it can fit around the dining room or kitchen table. Although it does not come with wheels it slides nicely over tile floors. If you have hardwood floors you may want to consider some type of protective pads, much like you would put on regular dining chairs. At 21.1 pounds, it came in right in the middle of the pack.
