Im starting to look at high chairs & wanted some reccomendations pls!!
I want one that is height adustable & also reclines, as my bubba is such a wee lil man
I have a steel craft messina i LOVE it! It goes to all different levels and reclines.. I have been putting DS2 in there just to prop him up (refulx) since he was about 6 weeks old.
It also has a bar for between the legs so you dont need to strap them in constantly (has straps also)

I'm not bothering with a highchair until DS is on solids, but things I learnt ast time was to look for one where the tray comes off to clean, doesn't have fiddly edges to clean food out of, and has a relatively small footprint, as some of them have such wide legs for stability that in a small house you end up tripping over them all the time.
Do not waste your money on an expensive high chair!
I got a steelcraft one for $160 and it was difficult to clean, took up a lot of space and ultimately, you will want something that he can sit up at the table with you in.
We got an Ikea Antilop ($39). You can't find an easier high chair to clean, and you can buy a tray and an inflatable insert for when they need extra back support for an extra $10 each.
So much more practical and affordable.
I agree with not wasting money.
Though if you DO have to get one, I'd recommend one of the chair-top ones.
High and low: You can put it on the ground or on the chair.
Recline able if you get an expensive one but honestly if your bub needs to be reclined, I wouldn't be starting on solids just yet.
i wish i'd got an ikea one. i have got a steelcraft messina - and yes it is awesome, it does all the things you want however it is a PAIN to clean. food gets everywhere and there's levers and handles everywhere. and the leather cover has little holes in it that not even a hose could get the food out of (#$*&#($*&#@$(*&. your baby will get big within months and not want the reclining extras... you can feed him/her in the rocker meanwhile?
I've got the Ikea one & it does everything I need it too & it's easy peasy to clean
Just one for now
thanks guys, i like the steelcraft messina & the peg perego ones
im not starting DS on solids til about 6 months but will use it before then just for a seat & also because i always get things earlier than needed, just caused i get so excited
DS is a very tiny baby (almost 4 months & in 0000) so I need to get quite a padded comfy one with the bar in between the legs as well as the 5 point harness
I'd go with the type like u said the hight and recline adjust I have one with dd and love it, with ds I had a basic wood one like the euro ones good for the back ect. hated it.
Target have a sale on some this week $90 down from $180 I think, it's worth a look I got dd's for $80 reduced from $200 from target it's straps even come off to go in the wash which I love no more yuck straps.
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover you cannot eat money.
I have a peg perego something or other for DD. I hate it, its awful to clean, its bulky and awkward. Nobody likes it, not even DD.
Could you possibly rent one or borrow from a friend to try it out before you hand over that much mone for it?
