Unlike car seats and strollers, highchairs have to withstand a much higher “mess” rate. A highchair needs to stand all kinds of variables from your baby. Think about what your baby does within one single minute of being in their highchair. You have peas and carrots flying everywhere, mashed potatoes smashed beneath those little hands, and the full on dumping of a bowl of mac and cheese (the cheesy kind) all down the sides. Then of course you have the “I will not eat that!” kicking and squirming kind of beating that your highchair takes.
With all of the food spills abuse your highchair takes, you want a super highchair that has it all. You want comfort, affordability, safety, flexibility, and a chair that’s ascetically pleasing. Gone are the days of uncomfortable and unsightly wooden highchairs! In today’s world, there are a craze of different types, shapes, and colors! How ever will you choose?
With all of the mac and cheese flying through the air, you probably don’t have the time to research hundreds of highchairs in search of the perfect “throne” for your baby. You know the qualities you want in a highchair but how to find the right one….
