    Default highchair JULY 2008

    How did everyone pick their highchairs? I really need to get one but I am amazed at how much they cost. We will use some of our tax money to get it and her car seat. Going to babies r us any suggestions?

    I think mostly I want one that is comfy for Sadie.

    I prefer the booster chairs. They are a quarter of the cost, portable, take up less room, and can be used when the kid gets older. My older DD is 3 and she still uses hers.

    I absolutely hate my highchair. I got it for DS because "everyone" was getting it. It's called the Prince Castle and was pretty expensive. I can't get it clean, and the tray doesn't come close enough to dina so she endes up wobbling all over the place. It doesn't lean back and you have to use two hands to open and close the tray. It is small so it fits into a small nook in my kitchen. I would love to get the fisher price space saver - it's a full fledged highchair but it goes on a regular chair to save space. It reclines and everything. My sister loves it, but i just can't justify the price after spending so much money on the highchair just 1 child ago.
    What I would look for is easy cleaning, a tray that goes all the way in to the child, but isn't too high, and one handed control of the tray. good luck!

    We got the Fisher Price Zen, can't tell you how it is, it's still in the box!! I still feed her in her Boppy chair on the kitchen table - she sometimes uses the Rainforest Booster seat at my sister's house but she doesn't sit in it for long, not sure if it's just not as comfy b/c it's plastic or if she can't see as much - my sister feeds her in her lap also which I am not coordinated enough to do.

    We have the Fisher Price Space Saver and love it. We used it for my son and now for Esme. It fits on a regular chair, relatively easy to clean and not very expensive. Xavier used it until we needed it for the baby and would still be using it otherwise. When they get older just remove the cover and it is much easier to clean.

    Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.

    I have a Graco Contempo that I received at a baby shower for my 1st child. Now she uses a booster and Vivi uses the highchair and it's great because we can all eat around the table.

    I think you have to think of what your needs are, and search for a chair from that.
    If space is a problem then a booster type would be best for you....etc.

    I like the Contempo because: It has adjustable height, 5-pt. harness, nicely padded, cleans easy, reclines, and folds very compactly....oh and also has wheels and wheel locks so I can move it around easily. You can also attach toys to it but I never purchased those.
    It does take up a considerable amt. of space when it is set up though.
