Baby ready to start solids? Before you start posting adorable photos of your little one covered in mashed banana and avocado — you’ll need a high chair. Meg Collins, editor of Lucie’s List, a survival guide for new and expectant parents, rounded up her top seating options in which tots can eat and shared her list with Us:
IKEA Antilop ($20)
No need to break the bank. “The Antilop is unbelievably cheap and shockingly awesome,” Collins tells Us. “With no fabric or seams, this chair makes cleanup a breeze.”
Inglesina Fast ($69)
Perfect for a family with a high-top table, “the Inglesina Fast clamps on to any surface up to 3.5 inches thick,” says the California-based mother of two. It’s also ideal for road trips: “It comes with a carry bag for fold-flat, easy transport.”
Graco Blossom ($189)
Designed to grow with your child, the Blossom — which accommodates up to 60 pounds — can be used as a traditional high chair, infant feeding booster, toddler booster or youth chair. Raves Collins of the 4-in-1 model: “It also wheels easily from room-to-room.”
Stokke Tripp Trapp ($249)
The classic wooden chair from Norway adjusts to the height of your child. “It pulls right up to the table, which allows baby to eat with the family,” says Collins. Rachel Bilson is a fan!
This chair — which Collins calls “all the rage” — is the same one Tiffani Thiessen's 12-month-old son Holt uses when he feasts. One game-changing feature: “It has a unique magnetized tray that glides into place using one hand,” Collins tells Us Weekly. Magnets in the tray top help keep bowls and plates in place — minimizing spills!
Micuna OVO ($459)
Elegant and customizable, the seat from Spain “is the latest designer high chair to make a splash in the U.S,” says Collins. “It sits atop four solid beech legs and features fabric or leatherette straps to keep baby safe.”
