    Default Chicco Jazzy or Valco Baby Genesis high chair?

    Can anyone tell me how far these chairs recline? How easy are they to clean? Looking for something simple I can put my 6 week old in so he can sit in the kitchen with me and chat while I cook dinner - and then obviously be easy to use later when the time comes to feed him solids. So it needs to recline and be padded enough to be supportive, but not so padded that it's a pain to clean. We so don't have a lot of space so looking for something that folds fairly compactly.

    Thanks!

    I think, most padded high chairs are a pain to clean for the many crevices they have. How about getting a baby rocker instead, and later on, get an IKEA antilop high chair when bub is ready for solid? You can buy padding for the IKEA highchair to support bub's back too.

    I know that space is limited but unfortunately, that is what I found. Padded and reclinable high chairs = hard to clean.

    ^^ this

    And the antilop doesn't fold but the legs come on and off quite easily so could still be packed away. I had a plain rocker when DD was little (none of this vibrating singing mumbo jumbo) that I got second hand for $15 and then the antilop for $30 all in all a pretty cheap venture

    Default Chicco Jazzy or Valco Baby Genesis high chair?

    Thanks girls. It really needed to be a high chair; we have a rocker and a swing but because they are so low to the ground it's not safe to have the baby in one of them in the kitchen while I'm cooking as its too easy for him to be tripped over or for something to be spilled on him. I had a look at both high chairs and ended up getting the Chicco because it reclines well and while it is padded there are very few crevice for food to hide in. It folds up really compactly and the legs pop off like the Antilop so really easy to transport. I had Ikea Antilops with my twins but this little man wouldn't be able to use one for ages, I need to sort this problem now!

    Thanks!

    We've got a Stokke trip trapp that we purchased the baby attachment for - looks a bit like a baby capsule. It reclines back and is up high - our DS was fine in it until about 7 months, so was worth the investment, and now we use the seat as our high chair.

    Btmac, our Tripp Trapp is actually my first DS' chair - he's now 10, so we just bought the baby attachment. Seriously the best money we ever spent. DS 10 used his at the table until he was 7 and then as a desk chair until we reclaimed it last year for our new bub. I couldn't live without it.
