When i went to mothercare to buy a highchair i didnt really think about the practicality's of it,been a first time mum i thought well all highchairs are the same as how can they be so different.Hmm big mistake i should have done my home work before going to buy one.
I bought a chicco happy snack highchair at first, boy what a mistake!
it was too high up to feed my little girl comfortably , it was'nt very comfy and poorly designed too.It was stuck on ebay a few days after buying it and i tried again
This time going for the mama highchair instead.
its a really nice padded seat thats easy to wipes down when baby has made a bit of a mess.
3 seat positions too so excellent for naps
a nice footrest that folds away.
adjustable seat height,
adjustable tray too which is great when baby gets a bit bigger or if little one is sat in there high chair to play for while.
wheels on the bottom so easy to move about but lock for when your feeding baby.
fully adjustable harness too which is great ,3 height settings for changing around as baby grows and the waist band is adjustable too so again excellent for both young and older children.
The folds away really well and its easy to do.
You press 2 red buttons on the sides of the legs and it folds flat to so great for storage when space is at a premium.
i love this highchair is just lovely. my little one always looks so comfy and very secure so no chance of escape either.a great highchair for alot less money than some other models on the market.
I love this chair. Was able to use it for weaning as the seat itself was padded and tilted back so that young baby was safe (even for a little nap). Straps are totally removable and able to go in washing machine. The chair folds away quite flatly against the wall - brilliant. I have two boys - both weaned and ate many a meal on this chair. We had to replace the seat cover recently due to my wild 16 month old having a good old ripping/digging/drilling session on the old seat cover. We were able to order a new seat cover for £35 from e-bay. It's a brilliant highchair. Especially for the cleanliness!!!!!!!!!! All the straps have been put in my washing machine many a time. It still looks good! Can't fault it. People say it's heavy. I don't think so. It has wheels for mobility. Folds away easily. LOVE IT....
As a first time mum, the time had come to face the daunting and if not somewhat messy task of weaning. Firstly, take one highchair. Ah! Need a high chair. Lets go and get one then. So off I went with one baby and one friend in tow to a leading baby shop. So many to choose from. Eventually, I decided on the Chicco Mamma high chair as I had heard that Chicco was a good make and I liked the look of this one. It was colourful without being too "In you face" and it looked sturdy. It was also reduced in price to just under £80 which swayed my decision enormously. Task Number one over with. Task number two, get it home. Good job I'd taken a friend with me. It is quite a bulky item however, it wasn't that heavy to carry, just awkward. On getting the highchair home, it was time to "play" to find out how it worked. I was suprised, none of this business about which way does it fold and what safety catch goes where. It was simple, straight forward and self explanatory. It couldn't have been easier. The hardest part was getting rid of the box it came in, my son didn't want to let it go as he had loads of fun playing with it. Cleaning the highchair was also easy as all of it is wipeable with a cloth, even the padded cushion. The only downfall came when I went to put my son in the highchair. Because the seat is quite big, he looked lost and could not see over the tray and the safety harness was not short enough. However, don't let this small hiccup put you off. I put a spare pillow underneath the back & bottom of the padded cushion which did the trick until such time he was big enough.
My daughter June purchased this highchair from mothercare during a sale for feeding her first child jordan in. She was very lucky to have a sale on reducing the price to just under £100. The solid framed highchair is quite heavy and her partner was a little puffed out having to carry it all the way from the local branch to our house ( they are all living with us at present, awaiting a place on own) Anyway on arriving home with a very heavy and large box thee opened it to see how it looked and worked. The highchair consisted of:- yellow stable feet Blue seat and rod supports yellow tray Aqua blue padded cushion spotted with "yellow dots and orange and yellow Turtles" red buttons at side and tray section Jordan loves his highchair and seems very comfortable with its 3 different positions and 5 point safety straps. He has just started on finger foods, so the slip on yellow tray has been attatched now. This glides on easy using the release button that is underneath the tray. The whole of the unit is washable and very easy to remove the cushion or wipe the whole of it down.Due to its overall structure it is very,very hard for it to be knocked over without alot of force, so you have the knowledge of your baby being safe, and secure whilst feeding takes place. The height adjuster is on the poles and easy again to use by pushing the red buttons either side where the yellow piece is attached to the pole and seat.This enables you to place the seat the height you want it say low for you feeding say sitting in an armchair to later sitting at a main table. To set up the chair put your foot on the back of the yellow feet support and push both sides on the red buttons and pull the leg pieces out and it will click into place.This is a very simple operation except when you have the child in your arms screaming for its meal and are trying to press both buttons with one hand
(anyone learnt to do the splits with your fingers yet?)It is not easy to move it far to see to the other side as it is a bit bulky.Bulky but folds neatly away to reasonable size Overall I do like this chair and can see it lasting very well for a few more years yet.Indeed for the next grand child. It suits an age range of approxiametly 5months to 36 months
I chose this high chair as it is so much safer than others. So many seemed weak and likely to topple over.I liked the fact that it had safety straps that are similar to a buggy and when the baby first uses it, (especially if they are small) you don't have to worry about them sliding about. A friend's son had a nasty accident in a high chair when he slid from the seat and became trapped under the tray section, fortunatley she managed to stop him doing any damage but he was left very frightened. I wanted a high chair that could recline if they fell asleep without their head falling into their diiner, also had safety straps, varied heights and easy to keep clean. This chair had all those. It is more expensive than a lot of other makes but the pros outweighed all of the cons. I would suggest a toothbrush to help clean the straps for bits of food that becaome lodged. I like the way that the varying heights allows the baby to sit at the same height as the rest of the family at the dining room table.The colours would suit any decor and athough it is heavy to move from place to place, it is ideal to leave at the table with your other dining chairs.
A sturdy easy to use chair suitable from your babys first solid meal. It has a soft washable cover that can be removed for a really good scrub down and a 5 point harness that is very easy to fasten. There are however two problems with the harness. Firstly it is very hard to clean, with grimmy bits of food often getting stuck in the holes and ridges. Secondly although the chair is suitable for even the youngest feeder due to the recline the harness doesn't really adjust small enough for some. It has 3 reclining positions and 5 hight positions which make it great for feeding when at a table or from a low chair. The tray stores on the back neatly and is a large size with a hole for a cup. The only problem I've found is that even at 11mths it is too high for my daughter to use even with toys on. It removes easy, wipes clean well and is very secure when on. It is possible to put the chair up when holding a baby but does require strengh and a great deal of skill so I wouldn't recommend it unless like me you had to! It does need regular cleaning and sterilising though because food does tend to store in any nook and crany. Folds up to a reasonable size for storage and although one of the more expensive chairs is worth the money.
What a find! We wanted to buy a high chair which blended in with our Dining Room as well as being functional - cue the Chicco Mama! It wasn't the cheapest option available but is packed with features. It has three seat-recline positions - so that when baby nods off half-way through dinner you can just tilt them back to full recline! It also has 6 height positions so is ideal for placing at your dining table so that baby can join in the family meals. Our little lady also uses it as a low chair and plays with her toys and watches Bananas in Pyjamas in it! Highly recommend it - oh yes and it comes in a very nice terracotta/yellow check.
5 adjustable height positions. 5 point harness.
