High Chairs

Feature image

When your baby is around 6 months old, you’ll begin to introduce solid foods to their diet. This time can be one of your most adventurous milestones together! The potential of food being smushed and mushed is likely. So, we know that you’ll want a safe and easy area to clean each day.

Highchairs allow babies to sit in a safe upright position as they navigate the new waters of solid foods. You will find two styles of highchairs: stand-alone and booster seat. The stand-alone style is its own chair and has a dedicated tray for food. The booster seat style secures to an already existing chair. The booster pulls up to a table to allow the table use for eating. Based on safety, durability, and user-friendly features, Stork Advisor® has compiled a list of our top-rated highchairs. Consider what we think and maybe you will find a highchair that is best for your family. Expect to experience many memorable meals together!

Why We Recommend:

The Graco Blossom 6-in-1 has everything that you could want or need from a highchair.  This highchair earns its ‘versatile’ label for growing with your baby from their first feeding.   This chair accommodates the growth of your child into the stage of a toddler.  The seat pad provides a comfortable place for baby to sit.  The seat pad is removable and can be washed in your machine washed for necessary cleaning. The food tray is large to prevent food from falling to the ground.  The chair footprint is large so that it is very stable and safe.

One mom said, “This highchair is the greatest quality chair that I could’ve ever asked for.  I knew it had different options as baby grows but it had a few other features I didn’t realize until I got it.”

One mom said, “Where was this chair 6 years ago when I had my first baby!  Adorable, easy to fold, folds small to travel!  I love that the tray moves off to the side and you don’t have to deal with pulling it to remove it! The tray is big and the clear tray on top is super easy to remove and wash.”

3. Most Durable Highchair

Stokke Tripp Trapp

This wooden highchair is called “the chair for life.”   The chair design and features show that this chair deserves the reputation.  It has a 5-point harness that you can use for your little one from the age of 6 to 36 months.   This chair was designed to hold up to 300 lbs.!  When your child outgrows the first set up, simply remove, and adjust the chair back and they’ve got a seat at the table that will continue to grow with them!  This beautiful and stylish highchair comes in a variety of finishes to fit well in any home.  This chair is known for its safety and easy-to-clean functionality.

And the best part is my child loves sitting in it.   It also is a beautiful modern chair that actually looks nice in your kitchen.  And it’s so easy to clean. The best!”

4. Best Booster Seat Highchair

Inglesina Fast Table Chair

Buying Options:

Why We Recommend:

You may not have the space for a traditional highchair, so a booster highchair is better suited to your situation.  The Inglesina Fast Table Chair is a great solution.  It is a secure, portable, and durable chair.  This chair secures directly to the end of most tables or countertops.  It has a padded seat for your child’s comfort that can also be removed and washed. The portability of the Inglesina Fast Table Chair allows you to travel with ease.  This chair has a storage pocket in the back to keep extra wipes close for any potential accidents.

One mom said, “This is one of the best baby products that we have purchased so far! So easy to install, to clean, and to carry around to other houses.”

5. Best Budget-Friendly Highchair

Ikea Antilop

Buying Options:

Why We Recommend:

Did you give the price tag of this one a double take?  Yes, that’s right, you can have your baby sitting and eating in this highchair for under $20!   Families love this highchair because it is classic for Ikea products which are simple, functional, and affordable. There is minimal setup.  Cleaning is a breeze.  If feeding gets extra messy, just take this seat outside and hose it down. One thing to note about the Ikea Antilop is that it only has a waist buckle, not a 5-point harness, so it may not be enough support for younger infants. 

One mom said, ““Our IKEA highchair is stylish, easy-to-clean, and cheap. You can’t beat that.” -Katie
