How to choose a baby highchair?
Faced with the profusion of high chair models on the market, it is difficult to make a choice. However, there are a few important points to bear in mind before making a purchase.
The safety of the baby highchair. Falls are still a factor in too many hospitalizations. Before buying, make sure that the model of baby chair you are looking for has the NF standard, stipulating that it meets the standards laid down by French legislation. In particular, the backrest must be high enough to accommodate a child up to the age of two, and the high chair must have a 3- or 5-point attachment system.
Also pay attention to the stability of the baby chair and choose your model according to your child’s weight. Finally, check that there is no risk of pinching or cutting.
The comfort of the baby highchair Will your child be comfortable in the highchair? Are the seat and the shelf wide enough? Is it properly secured to prevent it from slipping or rocking too much? Do not hesitate to add a cushion if necessary to improve your child’s comfort.

Should I choose a high chair that can be upgraded? If you only want to use a highchair for baby’s first meals, go ahead. An evolutive highchair adapts to your child’s build, respecting his growth. The footrest, seat and backrest are often adjustable. The tray and harness are detachable. Some models of evolutionary high chairs accompany children until their adolescence.
