Perch and Dine: The Ultimate Guide to High Chairs

Every piece of your baby’s furniture in the nursery serves a purpose. Therefore, the purchase of each furniture item requires careful selection regarding quality and number of features. Baby high chairs are no different, and like the rest of baby furniture items, they also demand mindful selection. Your baby spends considerable time in chairs; hence, you need to ensure it's comfortable enough for your baby with room to grow with them.

Macklem’s Baby Store offers you a rich variety of chairs with a range of features so that you have good options to select from. If you are already in search of some good-quality chairs but are confused about their selection, go through this article. We have compiled a list of top-notch chairs with their features to facilitate your selection.

High Chairs in Canada

The right high chair selection can make mealtime for your baby a pleasant experience. When your baby starts solid food at around six months and also sits up without support, it’s time to add a chair to your nursery or kitchen. As high chairs usually accompany your child for around two to three years and can also pass from one baby to the next, hence, you need to look at them carefully for the following features:

  • Sturdy: A baby chair not only holds your baby but should be strong enough to withstand their playful activities without collapsing or giving away.
  • Safety: Babies barely sit straight; to ensure their safety, chairs need to have harnesses and restraint bars.
  • Easy to clean: You can’t imagine mealtime bringing the amount of mess with it. The best chairs are always easy to clean to ensure hygiene.
  • Locking wheels: Not all chairs have wheels, but if they do, there should be an option to lock them to keep the chair stationary during mealtime.
  • Growing with your baby: You can’t afford to buy your baby furniture now and then; the chairs are usually adjustable, allowing you to use them from earlier months until 3 years of age at least.
  • Taking less space: A compact foldable chair is a good option that doesn’t take much space on one hand and can be folded when not in use.

Keeping in view the above-mentioned features, let's go through the chairs at Macklem’s Baby Store.
