Think about where you will be feeding your baby and where you want to place the highchair when it’s not in use. A folding highchair is a good option, and check out the footprint of the highchair to make sure its fits in the space you had in mind. Many have storage solutions attached, or come apart to make it easier to store.
Do you want a tray?
Not having a tray means that the baby is sat at the table with you getting involved with meantimes, but having a tray can help contain the mess and also help if you move the chair away from the table.
Make sure that the chair is easy to wipe clean, it will get messy often so best to avoid anything that isn’t washable!
Are you sitting comfortably?
You will want your baby to sit comfortably while they are feeding and sometimes after, so make sure there is lots of padding and adjustable straps.
