Re: Favorite highchair?

We have a Svan chair and totally love it! http://www.svanusa.com/svanchair.cfm We got the cherry one and it matches our kitchen table & chairs perfectly. I found it easy to clean, is adjustable, so you can change it as baby grows, and when they get old enough, you just take off the infant guard & tray and pull it right up to the table like a chair. Gavin used it and now Claire is using it, and it still looks good.

Re: Favorite highchair?

You don't have to get a high chair, kwim We had two given to us and we didn't really use them. What we have used is the fisher price healthy care booster seat. It is awesome.

We have a Graco Harmony and it works great for us. It is height adjustable, has 3 recline positions, a snack tray and the big tray with removeable top. The plus is you can easily remove the seat cover and toss it in the washing machine if it gets funky. It must be comfortable because my DD loves to just sit in it for the heck of it.

Re: Favorite highchair?

We do the booster on the reg chair as well. My cousin had a really huge and bulky highchair for her dd and it kind soured the whole high chair thing to me. The one I have can recline for smaller babies, I loved to put the girls in them to watch mom.

Another vote for the Fisher Price Healthy Care Booster. We have a teeny house and can't fit a full highchair. We use the booster and can still push the chair into the table when not in use. We like that it's easily portable (carries like a purse) for trips to visit people and only $35ish so our two babysitters could have their own. My friends w/ multiple children all use this seat from 6m till they're ready to sit in the big chair.
We're holding onto the FPHC aquarium highchair we got until DD outgrown her carseat--we're trading it in towards a Britax instead!

Re: Favorite highchair?

I really prefer using a booster seat strapped onto the chair. That said, we are onto our third highchair. Our first was given to us and was really old and had armrests with spaces under them so when ds1 started solids and wasn't quite sitting he would slump under the armrests. I still have it folded up in my basement in case we have guests and need an extra toddler seat, since it folds fairly small. The second I got on clearance and really liked the recline because I could put my dc in there and pull them up to the table while we were eating The tray was way too high though. That chair cracked, and dd2 couldn't reach the tray anyway, and was climbing out of it and the booster seat because they didn't have a five point harness. I had to get something suitable for dd because she was having weight gain issues and I wanted to make sure she was comfortable at the table. At the time no booster seats had 5 point harnesses so we ended up with a Graco Harmony on clearance. It's nice, but I hate how much space it takes up in my dining room. We also tried the seat that clamps onto the table, but it didn't fit our table and I returned it. If I had to get something now with a five point harness, I would get get the Fisher Price space saver highchair that straps onto a regular chair.
