The birth of a child is a delightful moment in the life of every family. At the very beginning, the newborn does not need anything, except caress, sleep and mother's milk. But every month the baby is growing rapidly and soon it will be time to buy special furniture. At the very beginning it is a highchair for feeding, then a set of furniture for creative work, and later for school.

Features and benefits

There is a wide variety of highchairs. We begin to consider options as needed data items for the baby. Baby chair has been specifically designed to facilitate the introduction of complementary foods. After all, when the baby is sitting next to the table, it is much easier to talk with him and offer to try a new product. Although all of them were created with the aim of placing the baby safely, their characteristics and features vary considerably. When choosing such a modern gadget for a child, it is important to compare the features of each model, take into account the age and weight of the infant.The size of the room where the highchair will be located, the aesthetic component, additional functions and financial limit are important.

This product is a hybrid combination of table and chair. Many models look like a table on high legs with a comfortable seat. In front there is a spacious hole in which the baby passes the legs. Some models have a removable tabletop, to facilitate washing of food debris and other contaminants. Modern models are represented by chairs - transformers, which, if desired, can be turned into a comfortable cradle and a practical table very convenient for drawing and games. At 6 months, the mother should feed the baby herself, but with proper nutrition, the baby will soon begin to eat himself from a spoon and fork with soft teeth.

The features of the high chairs consist in the materials of which they are made, the types and the various models. Consider the features of children's chair.

  • Comfortable design due to calculated sizes and dimensions. The design has the correct shape for the back of the child. Since the bones of the skeleton finally strengthened by the year, and posture is at the stage of formation, the back of the chair must maintain the correct position of the back of the child.Baby chair is equipped with special belts for child safety. It also has an anatomical insert, which is most often placed between the legs or the bottom of the tabletop, thereby preventing the baby from slipping down. The seat and backrest should be soft.
  • The chair must be stable, and the design as safe as possible. This applies to both chairs for children up to one year old, as well as older ones.

  • Chairs for children greatly facilitate the process of feeding. The child is fixed in one place and is in a comfortable position. Due to the special mounts, he can not slip and romp, so you can safely feed him.The main advantage of high chairs is safety and reliability. Baby, which is fixed with belts or bumper is easier to control.
  • As a rule, the stool is used not only for its intended purpose, but also as a “working space” of slightly grown crumbs. Behind the table top, the kid can freely play, draw, or get acquainted with the taste of kitchenware.
  • The main thing in the highchair is strict compliance with the age and parameters of the child. When choosing a high chair and table, parents should think how comfortable the baby will be for them. It is best to take the child to the store so that he himself will try the most convenient model.

Manufacturers offer several options for the type of chairs.

  • The chair is standard. Happens on high or low legs. The advantage of this model is thatthat it can be pushed to the adult dining table quite calmly. This model of chair can not be folded, which is an undeniable disadvantage.
  • The folding version of the chair is very popular. Due to the large functionality it is preferred by many parents. The type of construction has a convenient folding and unfolding mechanism. Some models due to the attached wheels allow you to move the design around the room. The disadvantage of this type of construction is rather large dimensions due to the large distance between the legs. But it is necessary for a more stable position of the whole structure.
  • Chair-table or combined design. Most often, this kind of model is made of plastic or wood. Quite economical option with a lack of free space. From the minuses we can highlight the fact that not all such options can be decomposed into separate elements.
