All About Baby High Chairs

All About Baby High Chairs - An infant seat is not required for your child if he or she is under six months of age. Although some companies make them so that they can lie down for babies, it is not necessary until your child can sit up. The choice is yours.

Today's high chairs come with all kinds of features which are really more for the parent or caregiver than the child. Although the seat covers are soft, the seats are comfortable. Some high chairs have wheels to make them easier to move but this is not necessary. Some now come with height-adjustable mechanisms to accommodate your child's growth and to bring the baby closer to the table. There is also an adjustable footrest to accommodate your child's growth as well. Most now fold for easy storage.


The high chair can now be turned into a play table. Some of them have inserts that fit on the tray to give you a place to play for the baby. The feeding tray on many models comes with a cup / bottle holder insert and some models have an extra large feeding tray.

The pedestal of the high chair should be wide and stable to help prevent the high chair from tipping over. If your child leans to the side, the chair could overturn and injure your child. Then it is best to teach your child to sit all the time. Many high chairs now fold for easy storage.

When looking at a high chair several people express opinions about what a high chair is made of. There are all wooden chairs which tend not to be adjusted in height. There are metal-framed high chairs with plastic trays and there are plastic high chairs.

There are several things you can do to make a high chair a safe place. Never leave your child unattended to pick up bibs, food, or answer the phone. It only takes one second for your baby to have an accident. You must prepare everything before placing your child in a chair.

Your child should always be tied to a high chair without exception. The feeding tray will not prevent your baby from slipping under it and falling on the floor and possibly causing injury. If older children slip under the trays, they can get stuck and get hurt.

If your high chair is folded, make sure that when you open it, it is locked in the open position. If the chair collapses, your baby could be injured. This can be prevented by periodic inspections of all parts of the chair.

Do not place the high chair near where the baby can push it and accidents may occur. Also, do not place your baby's chair near the retractable cables. All cables must be out of reach.

When placing the food tray in place, pay attention to your child's fingers. They can be pinched or cut badly. Also make sure the lock is locked by pulling the tray gently. It will not hold your child in place but if it is loose or doesn't catch on, your child if not tied can fall and get hurt.

A worn high chair can be dangerous. If the vinyl cover on top of the foam tears, the baby may swallow a small portion of the foam. An worn locking mechanism can prevent the tray from staying in place. All belts and clips should be inspected for tears or tears. Clothespins for missing pieces or cracks. Cracked or chipped trays can cause injury or germs. This type of inspection should be done before buying a used chair as well.
