Best Highchairs and Booster Seats – At the sixth month mark, our little infants will be able to do more things now compared to how they were during their third month, an important milestone that they can do would be to start munching on solid food, but of course, the “solid” food that will eat aren’t really solid but puree.
Please remember this: “Food before one is just play”. Babies under one year old can survive on just breast milk but it is still a must to let them taste food so that we can add to their nutrients and just prepare them for eating when they hit one year old.
Important to note: Do not try to feed your baby if he or she is still below 6 months old. You see, their system is not yet ready to take it and might choke or have digestive problems. Please wait until the baby reaches his or her 6th month.
Also when feeding your baby, please feed your baby one vegetable at a time. For example, during the first week, you will feed your baby only pureed carrots.
So the baby will only have carrots for the whole week, then when the baby doesn’t develop any allergies to the said vegetable then you can proceed to the next vegetable. As said, we do this to find out if the baby is allergic to a certain food.
Most allergies come out after four days, so if you mix two food together, you won’t be sure exactly which one the baby is allergic to.
+ Do not try to feed your baby honey until he turns one year old.
That being said, let us proceed to our products for today: Booster seats and high chairs! Are they necessary?
Personally, I would say yes. One way to entice a baby to eat would be to involve the baby during meal times, and how can a baby feel involved if he or she doesn’t have her own chair, right?
Let’s take a look at the products right now.
1.) FISHER PRICE HEALTHY CARE BOOSTER SEAT
Booster seats are great if you want to save space, and also if you want something portable. For only 26.99 US DOLLARS, you will be able to get your own Fisher Price booster seat.
This booster seat got perfect 5 stars rating with over 2,863 ratings! Curious? Let’s take a look at the product, shall we?
So once you purchase the item, you will be unboxing it from a frustration free, easy to open packing, and good to note, the packaging is a hundred per cent recyclable. Not only that, it is ready to use and easy to strap to a chair.
Due to the strap, it is very secure and able to stay steady on most dining and kitchen chairs. This product also comes with a dishwasher safe feeding tray.
What frustrates me the most about some chairs is that whatever the baby eats, there is a high chance of small crumbs getting inside the sides and attracting ants.
But Fisher-Price has solved that problem with their easy clean seat. There are no crevices to trap crumbs. No crumbs, no ants.
The harness of the booster seat allows you to choose from three adjustable points.
If you are the type of family that loves to move about or travel, this product is for you. You can fold it and you can easily carry it using it’s over the shoulder carry strap.
Let’s read up some reviews about this product:
“As this is my second child, I feel like a more experienced parent. For my first child, I used a more traditional padded high chair. What a mess!She wiped food on the padded surface at every meal and I was constantly cleaning the pad. It was also very bulky and the tray was too large and tall for her tiny arms, making it difficult for her to feed herself.And although “dishwasher safe,” the tray was too big for my dishwasher. For my second child I wised-up and bought her this booster seat. I love that it is baby-sized. At 7 months old, she can easily feed herself from the tray.The seat is also very easy to clean because it’s not padded and the tray actually fits into my dishwasher. The tray can be a little difficult to take on and off, but that is a small gripe.The booster and tray easily slide under our table when not in use and this booster seat doesn’t take up any more room in my kitchen than a standard chair.My 2 1/2 year old also easily fits into the booster, but she doesn’t use the tray because she is a “big girl.” I can see my baby using this booster seat for many years to come. Buy this seat- you won’t regret it!” – G. Kay
“I decided to skip the high chair and go straight to a booster. The seat straps securely onto a regular chair. Secure the belts and attach tray and done. Tray needs to be attached immediately because baby/toddler is not secure with the belt staps at all.
I do not have any trouble attaching tray. Cleans very easily however, the straps are a bit more difficult since they do not detach.
Lots of grooves for food to get stuck in but just make sure to clean after each use and it is not an issue. Overall I could not be more happy with this seat. Saves space and does the job.” – Sexy But Classy

2.) EVENFLO 4-IN-1 Eat And Grow Convertible High Chair
Pro: It is practical. You can use it for yours since you can convert it to a table when your child doesn’t need to be in a highchair anymore.
Con: The way the legs of this high chair is spread out really takes a lot of space so if you want to save space, you may want to think and see if you have space for this one.

Okay, since it is four in one, you can use this product as an infant high chair, a baby dining chair and tray, a toddler stand alone chair, and a big kid table and chair. So many uses!

Learn how to properly use this product, if you decide to get this one with this video. I personally like this because I can still use it even if my baby doesn’t need a high chair anymore, maybe until school-age as long as he or she can fit.
“If it fits, I sits!” as the cat says.
Here are some pictures of the product:
Let’s take a look at some reviews about the product:
“This is a four star high chair that can easily be five with three simple mods. Experienced parent here so listen up newbies!…
1 – Toss the pad. It is a hassle, an extra germ habitat, and your baby comes equipped with padding.
2 – There is a recess in the seat about the size of two quarters that collects nasty and is very difficult to clean. Drill out the bottom.
3 – The tray has a green post that collects water in the dishwasher. Drill a hole in the bottom.
My wife is a change-averse skeptic. But she kisses me longer now that I made these mods!” – Renee
“I just got this delivered a few hours ago and got to use it with both kiddos. Might just have to buy another! Love it already!!! Son is almost 2.5 and daughter just turned 1 and absolutely love how I can use this highchair in multiple positions!!
(Also have a Fisher Price one that attaches to a chair.) This one is a great replacement for the massive Graco one we have and I am very happy with my purchase!
Seems super easy to clean and is very easy to change from highchair to chair and table.
Sidenote…..why the heck is the pink one like $20 more than the green one???? Geeeeeez :\” — Melissa B.
