TCT has compiled a list of top 5 comfortable highchairs that are currently available in the market. Now, teaching table manners can be a really easy job!
How do you know that your baby is ready for a highchair? And do you really need one? Well, I and my husband realized it the day we introduced semi-solid diet to Brat H. In any case, around 6 months is an ideal time to get your babies used to something of that sort. Very recently, I did a post on table manners where I did mention that to be able to teach good table manners to your infant/toddler, it is necessary to have them sit with you and explore the food, placed right in front of them. And, I know that kids can be really smart, perhaps not even willing to follow your instructions. Therefore, it becomes even more important to introduce something like a highchair in their lives early on.
So, here I am, back again with my highchair. Only, this time, I would like to talk about a few models currently available in the market and why I highly recommend a few of them to you.
TCT has compiled a list of 5 best highchair options that are available in the market at the moment. You may go on to do your bit of research but having a list of what’s already there just makes your life so much easier.
The ideal age when you can introduce a highchair to your baby is usually when he reaches the age of 4 to 6 months and starts having solid food. On most occasions, feeding food to your baby is a tricky and time-consuming task. Kids are notoriously messy eaters and require supervision and clean-up once they are done. They are also experimenting and trying to understand different tastes. Needless to say that at this time making them comfortably positioned in a highchair makes this task convenient for both, you, and your baby. As a result, you can ensure that your baby eats properly and once done, clean-up the mess.

5. Graco SimpleSwitch Highchair and Booster:
Disclaimer: My son has got so familiarized with his highchair that by now he can stand on it (if left unstrapped and unattended for too long). So, here is a piece of advice: Always use the safety straps on the highchair as its the most important feature that protects your child from accidents. Look for chairs that have a three or five point crotch strap.
