    With three meals a day and snacks in between, let's face it, your highchair will get a ton of use. We don't want there to be a love/hate relationship with anything that is supposed to simplify times with your little one, so this guide should help make any meal time more enjoyable!

    Space saver high chair

    Fisher Price: Space Saver

    $54.99

    This "Space Saver" easily straps on to a kitchen or dining chair. Perfect for small dining areas while not sacrificing big high-chair features such as 3 recline positions and 3 height adjustments. This seat, with its compact size, will be perfect for small space living or Grandma's house.

    Antilop high chair

    Ikea: Antilop

    $24.99

    Design doesn't get much simpler than this basic highchair, with a great price that all can appreciate. It is easy to disassemble for transport or storage and an additional tray can be purchased for $5.00.

    Tripp Trapp high chair

    Stokke: Tripp Trapp

    $249.99

    I love that this chair encourages your child to be right up to the table for close family interaction. The basic chair is $249.99 but the Baby Set is an additional $59.99. Seat cushion and optional tray are additional, but if you are looking for a fun pop of color this is the high chair for you with its thirteen color choices.

    Fresco high chair

    Bloom: Fresco

    $550.00

    In a class all its own with its futuristic design and high price point, the Bloom Fresco is sure to catch your eye. One may first fall in love with its design but later grow to appreciate the 360° swivel and adjustable height. It extends to kitchen island or bar height. We all know mealtime can be very messy so as a heads up this chair has small, hard-to-clean crevices.

    Tot sprout high chair

    OXO: Tot Sprout

    $250.00

    Style is a big plus for this mid priced high chair designed with a clean wood base and molded seat. As your little ones sprouts so will your OXO Tot Sprout, recommended use from six months to five years old. The "bigger child" position resembles a high chair but hopefully in your child's attempt to be all grown up, they won't notice.

    Signet high chair

    Svan: Signet

    $250.00

    A European bentwood chair that is ergonomic and beautiful. Designed to support your small baby to holding the weight of a 250 lb. adult with just a few adjustments. I have to say one of the best features is its overall size, comparable to a regular dining chair. This proves that to be secure and solid doesn't mean it needs to be bulky.

    Grow up high chair

    Mutsy: Grow Up

    $65.00

    The day will come when a parent may want to venture out to eat with their toddler in tow. This seat will make those times a little easier. Ideal for ages two to four. With the seat weighing under 4 lbs., your growing child will love a place at the table. Practical also as a booster seat right at home.

    Duodiner high chair

    Graco: Duodiner

    $139.99

    The Recliner of highchairs! The cushy padded seat will completely support your baby with its wide backrest and recline positions. Sounds comfy and who doesn't love a baby product on wheels!

    Fairview high chair

    Eddie Bauer: Fairview

    $99.99

    I love this highchair for its classic wooden style and a little vintage flair! Convenient features include the dishwasher safe tray insert and spot for bibs at arm's reach. All parents will love the discreet shelf for storage.
