You can’t be too safe when it comes to protecting your baby. Car seats, cribs, high chairs and other equipment should meet or exceed safety standards. High chairs range widely in design. Many are made for toddlers, not babies, and should not be used by infants that cannot yet sit up unassisted. The best highchairs for a baby are safe for small infants to use and convenient for the parents.
This sleek and stylish high chair won rave reviews from “People” magazine. The fact that it swivels 360 degrees makes it easy for mom to reach her baby quickly. In addition, adjusting the height of the chair is as easy as pressing the pneumatic lift with your toes. This ensures that your baby gets a smooth, comfortable ride without jerks or slips. The wide, circular base prevents tipping.
Fisher-Price’s Zen Collection High Chair
Fisher-Price is a well-known, budget-friendly name in baby and children’s products. It is rated as the top of four highchairs by the website for “Parenting” magazine. This highchair is made of plastic, which makes it easy to clean, and has a cushioned, reclining seat that allows you to feed a baby who cannot yet sit unsupported easily. The flared legs and locking wheels keep your baby safe and sturdy, and it is height-adjustable.
Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair
This highchair is rated highly by both Grandparents.com and ConsumerSearch. It is similar to the Zen Collection, but it has a more colorful seat cushion in a rainforest print. One thing that sets it apart from its simpler counterpart is the fact that it comes with musical toys that attach to the tray. This makes it easy for you to entertain your baby while you are preparing her food. The tray can be removed with one hand, and the wheels lock. This highchair is rated as a best choice for a baby because it also has a crotch post, which is a plastic divider that sits between the legs which, along with the harness, helps keep a floppy baby from sliding down beneath the tray.
Graco Blossom 4-in-1 Seating System
This highchair is a “seating system,” which means it can transform from a reclining infant feeder to an upright seat big enough for toddlers to use. Rated highly by both ConsumerSearch and Grandparents.com, it also has a wide, secure base, modern design, crotch post and infant pillow. The pillow is meant to support a baby’s neck and can be removed as the baby grows.
