Updated on January 27, 2013

High Chair

Feeding Baby

In the first few months of baby's life feeding on a regular basis helps you and baby get into a routine, although sometimes it is not as easy as it sounds.

Your daily routine may not be the same as baby's, shopping, housework, unexpected visitors, are all part of day to day life which can cause interuptions to any routine, but baby still needs to be fed when he/she is hungry.

There is nothing more special than holding baby in your arms, wheteher breast or bottle feeding, and looking into each others eyes.

Feeding a baby is part of the bonding process of both parent and child.

As baby gets older though bottle or breast feeding soon fade away to a distant memory as baby becomes a little more independent and begins joining the rest of the family at meal times.

This is when you know it is time to invest in a good High Chair that is not only safe for your child to use but easy to keep clean and germ free.

Is it easy to get baby in and out of the chair?

Is the chair going to be High enough for baby to join you at your dinining table?

Is it easy to clean the chair?

Can the chair be used for other reasons than eating?

      Great hub, Jimmy!

      We have the Chico Polly highchair and really like it. I love how you can adjust the height as well as the angle of the chair. Declining the chair when the baby is really young is very helpful. It also folds very compactly for a large high chair. We also have the Chico Caddy Hook on Chair that attaches to the table. Once your baby can easily hold themselves up, this is a great chair. I like how the child is actually at the table with you for meals.

      Thanks again for a great hub! Robin
