Babies need training and assistance with just about everything, including sitting upright while getting fed. A regular chair will not do for someone so small and unable to prop themselves up. Parents should get a high chair, which provides support for infants and convenience for adults as well. Parents who deeply care about their kid should seek out the best available options. For your convenience, we at Ideal Baby & Kids put together a list detailing, in no particular order, our top ten favorite high chairs of 2020.
- Stokke Tripp Trapp Highchair Natural
This product’s first incarnation came out in 1972, so it is not exactly new. Nor is it typical, resembling a sort of IKEA ladder. Yet, the Stokke Tripp Trapp Highchair Natural’s ergonomic design remains phenomenal almost 50 years later. The angled back rest supports the spine and enables people to slide it up to the table. More importantly, babies can grow into kids and continue enjoying the seat thanks to its adjustable seat and foot plates. Over time, you can convert it into a child-sized regular chair.
- Peg Perego Siesta High Chair
The Peg Perego Siesta High Chair shares two key values with the Stokke Tripp Trapp: long-term use and functionality. With that said, its design achieves these goals from a different approach. Parents can alter the height of the chair between nine different levels as their child grows. On top of that, the seat itself can switch between five different recline positions. Kids can eat while sitting upright, play in a different position, or lie all the way back and enjoy a comfortable siesta.
- Chicco Polly Progress 5-in-1 Relax Multi-Chair in Silhouette
Another great option for parents who want to make the most of a high chair is the Chicco Polly Progress 5-in-1 Relax Multi-Chair in Silhouette. This mechanical masterwork is highly flexible, with five distinct configurations. “Newborn Recliner” is for feeding and changing babies. “Infant Highchair” and “Toddler Booster” have space for a snap-on tray with a removable liner. The Big Kid Booster and Youth Stool round it out. You can even adjust the set-up so that two kids can sit on it at once, hence the name “multi-chair.”
- Mima Moon 2G High Chair
The Mima Moon 2G High Chair can go from seated to reclining. Grown-ups can adjust the height by pushing a button at the base with their foot until it locks into place. These qualities are good, but it is the seat pads that make the whole thing stand out. In addition to feeling soft, lightweight, and comfortable, they are also thermoformed for durability and easy to clean. Plus, when your infant seems unable to fit any longer, just remove the upper seat and it becomes a good chair for a toddler.
- Peg Perego Prima Pappa Zero 3
There is more to the Peg Perego brand than the justly celebrated Siesta. To give an example, the Peg Perego Prima Pappa Zero 3 provides further proof that high chairs do not need to be basic. The selection of reclining, height, and footrest positions allow for many different configurations, including a full recline for comfortably feeding newborns. This highly functional chair is also quite light and compact, with folding capabilities for easy storage. It even comes with wheels, which allow for easy transport between the kitchen and dining table — or anywhere around the house.
- Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Total Clean High Chair
Feeding babies often gets messy. That can be part of the fun — that is, until it is time to clean up. Some high chairs make that process easier on parents, including the Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Total Clean High Chair. The seat pad is stain-resistant and capable of being cleaned in a washing machine. The seat itself, plus the tray and the tray insert, are all removable and dishwasher-safe. If every other part is washing or drying, you can isolate the chair portion and use it as a booster seat for your child.
- Disney Baby Simple Fold Plus High Chair
Disney is all about making both children and parents happy, and is there a better companion for mealtime than Mickey Mouse? The Disney Baby Simple Fold Plus High Chair is everything that a high chair should be. It is comfortable, adjustable, sturdy, and easy to clean. Parents can also fold the lightweight construct into a travel-friendly size for any theme park trips. Different options also feature Disney characters, giving the high chair that extra touch of Disney magic.
- Evenflo 4-in-1 Eat & Grow Convertible High Chair
The Evenflo 4-in-1 Eat & Grow Convertible High Chair has it all. We are not simply referring to the washable tray, equally washable seat pad, five-point safety harness, and other useful features. This chair can last even longer than others on this list. You can remove the footrest and stilts as the baby matures into a toddler, creating a mealtime spot that lets their feet touch the floor. Once they can sit at the table with you, you can discard the tray, keep the chair, and use the former footrest and supports as a table.
- Baby Trend Golite 3-in-1 Highchair
The Baby Trend Golite 3-in-1 Highchair is definitely an infant’s high chair. The aluminum frame is only capable of lifting as much as 40 pounds. With that said, there is no need to chuck out the whole thing after a few months of feeding. The chair can be removed from the frame and continue supporting your child as a booster seat at the table. After that, it can even become a piece of child-sized furniture for the playroom. Along the way, its five-point harness, adjustable footrest, and other features provide safety and comfort.
- Peg Perego Tatamia High Chair
Our last item also comes from the Peg Perego family. For a costlier yet undeniably fancier option, look no further than the Peg Perego Tatamia High Chair. It offers nine different combinations of height and recline positions, plus an adjustable footrest to boot. The 5-point safety harness and T-bar keeping your kid from falling out. It can also change from recliner to high chair to regular chair, but it can even become a swing. In all, it is great for the first four years of your child’s life and development.
