When do I start using a highchair?
We get asked this question a lot….
There is no simple answer to this, other than it all depends on when you and your child are ready. For starters, your little one should be able to sit up by their self. This shows that they are able to control their bodies in a way that will help them to be able to interact with food or items that are placed in front of them.
The next thing you need to ask is, are you ready?
Your little miss or mister is going to become VERY demanding once they start trying out solid foods. They will want anything you or anyone around them is eating and they can become quite forceful when asking for this.
What to look for in a high chair.
Is it safe? Your highchair should at least conform to international safety standards. If there is no mention of safety standards on the highchair your are looking at, then I would seriously question why.
Functionality. Many highchairs will claim to be many things, but first and foremost, is it a good high chair? Will it do what it is meant to do better than anything else? Your highchair should fit up to your normal dining table so your little one can be included in your mealtimes.
