Choosing a high chair is something all parents have to do at one point or another. It can also be quite a hard decision as there are so many varieties to choose from and features that vary. In the past we have always gone with the basic plastic high chair, no frill no fuss. These were not only a hell of a lot more affordable than some but in the spirit of honesty, the real reason we chose them was because we wanted to be able to just take it outside and hose it off. Yes I know, how lazy can one person be right? But let’s be honest – who wants to be spending 30 minutes cleaning every nook and cranny of a padded reclining high chair when you could just simply wipe it clean, knowing there is no place for excess food and germs to hide.
The only thing that has let down the no frills high chair over the years is that it seems so easy for the ‘Houdini’ children of mine to climb out, even if they have been strapped in. The gap between them and the tray just seems too much. This is the reason I love the BabyBjorn High Chair so much. The tray/table can adjust to slide in and out to sit snuggly about your childs tummy, making it near impossible for the ‘escape artist child’ to get out. The table can be adjusted as your child grows. Poppet tries but is not even close to even looking like she can get a leg out. This quality high chair provides maximum safety for your child. It opens up so you can put your child in and take them out, this is done with a 2 step locking system. Simple for adults but inexecutable for a child. The BabyBjorn High Chair is suitable for children ages 6 months to 3 years.
The BabyBjorn High Chair is allows your child to sit in an upright position during meal time. This has more than one benefit in my opinion; children find it difficult to even try and stand which ultimately makes it harder for them to get out. It also promotes good back postures. As mentioned previously I love simple high chairs that can be cleaned with ease and the BabyBjorn high chair allows this but with the added benefits of it providing safety for my child. The smooth surfaces prevent food hiding anywhere and the removable tray makes for a very easy clean. The removable tray simply clips off and has the added benefit of being dishwasher safe, I think the tray clips off a little too easy though as Poppet can take it off but that is really the only downfall the BabyBjorn High Chair has. Featuring an innovative design this attractive high chair folds with ease to only 25cm wide which makes it achievable to store and transport. Costing a bit more than I would usually pay for a high chair, I can say with all sincerity – it is worth every cent! The safety features and ease to clean make the BabyBjorn high chair my number one choice.
