7 best high chairs, according to Aussie parents
Choosing the best high chair for your baby can help make the difference between a peaceful and chaotic mealtime. There are a few key questions you’ll want to think about when choosing your high chair: can it be easily cleaned? Is it comfortable for your baby? Do you want one that will easily fold away, or will it be kept out? Do you want one that will convert into a toddler chair later?
The Tell Me Baby community has rated the high chairs they’ve tried and shared their opinions on what has, or hasn’t, worked for them. (See the full high chair review pages.)
Here are seven top baby high chairs our community loves.
