    Default High chair help!

    Hi guys,
    Im not sure if this is the right section but I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good high chair. I'm so disappointed, I got a wooden one for my baby shower and was so excited but there are heaps of problems:
    * it doesn't have a harness
    * it's not adjustable so it's very short
    * the back is also short so not enough back support.
    * the table part goes over DS' head
    * you can adjust the table if they need more or less room.
    I like wooden ones but would rather a practical option. I don't want to be spending heaps of money.
    Any suggestions would be great!

    Default High chair help!

    I was disappointed with mine too so I went and got the ikea one. It was cheap, sturdy and all plastic so I could wipe it down or hose it if it got food all over it- and it certainly did! Loved it! The tray detaches so u can use it or just push the chair to a table and they can sit with the family. Only thing is it can't be adjusted in hight but I found this didn't matter!

    Yep, I love our ikea one, it is onto our second child now, the legs come off so it easily packed into the cupboard for a year. It is all plastic so easy to wipe down, not height adjustable but most tables are made to a standard size. Sturdy, harness included and it is small so doesn't take up much room, no more than a normal dining chair so we never have to move it away from the table, bonus is it is cheap.

    Yep ikea all the way! $20 without the tray and $10 for the tray I love it!! So easy to clean has a bellyharness and you can pop the legs off if you need to travel with it.
    If your not near an ikea target sell one very similar

    Just be careful with it as I found it was easy for DS to push it over ( with him in it!) so don't leave them unsupervised - mum had one for him at her place and he used to rock it while in it to tip it over as it is very light weight
