So, it’s time to bite the bullet (or, in this case, broccoli) and start weaning. One of the main things you’ll need? A highchair.
But with so many available, which highchair will suit your home, baby’s needs and your lifestyle? Here’s the deal.
Space saving highchairs
Not enough space to swing a cat? We hear ya. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get an amazing highchair. Just choose one that can be easily folded after mealtimes. The great thing about these highchairs are that most are full size and have trays. They also look great at your table and behind your door after mealtimes too. This Joie Mimzy Snacker Highchair is ultra lightweight and compact. It comes with a tray that can be stored on the back of the seat and can be folded down with one hand too. Oh, and there's 3 recline positions, while the tray is also adjustable through 4 positions. Nifty.
Highchairs for out and about
Love dining out and travelling but hate the idea of that grubby restaurant highchair? Us too. Feast your eyes on our portable highchair and booster seat range. If you have a baby around the 6 month stage and are looking for a highchair that you can easily clamp onto a table, then this phil & teds Lobster Portable Highchair is a great option. Suitable for babies who can sit up unassisted, this portable highchair fits tables with a thickness of 2 - 9.5 cm. And it’s easy to put on too, thanks to the rubber grips, which secure to the table using a ‘twist on-and-off’ clamp mechanism. When you’re done, just flip the clamps inward and the chair folds neatly back onto itself. Simples.
Got an older diner? There’s a portable highchair idea for them too. The BabyBjorn Kitchen Booster Seat is perfect for taking out and about. Lightweight and stackable, this booster fits most chairs and keeps mini eaters at table height. For escape artists there's a two-stage lock , while the non-slip pads keep it from slipping.
Oh, and a little note. These portable highchairs also make a great alternative if you’re really short on space at home too. #justsaying
