Meal times are important, if not sacred, for most families. That’s why it’s essential to have your little one sit down on the dining table and have a meal together with the family as soon as they start solids If you don’t fancy chasing after your child with a spoon during mealtimes, a well-designed yet practical highchair could be the solution.
With the varying range of highchairs in different designs, functions and budget available, it can be overwhelming.
We make it simple for you! Here are some of the things to look out for when hunting for the right high chair for your child:
- Size: If you live in a smaller home or apartment, you may want to get something that doesn’t take up a lot of space.
- Safety: Check the weight capacity. Does it have restraint straps to secure your child? If it comes with wheels, make sure they can be locked into place. Check the seat and tray to ensure that they are firmly secured and won’t pose as a hazard to your child.
- Style: Find a highchair that will either blend in or add a splash of color to the other furniture in your home.
- Storage: Can it be folded up easily for storage? This feature is especially important if you have minimal dining space.
- Adjustable: Is the height adjustable for your child to sit comfortably up against the dining table? Some highchairs also come with reclinable seats and adjustable foot rests for baby.
- Clean: Is the tray dishwasher safe? Is the seat removable and machine washable? Kids are not exactly the tidiest eaters, so you will want to find something that can be easily wiped and washed.
- Budget: Whether you’re looking at getting a standard or European-style highchair, hook-on, booster seat or chair harness, the prices can range from as low as to the high of RM. As it can be a hand-me-down item, do invest in a good quality one.
