For this post, I have put together a collection of the best baby highchairs currently available. For more newborn buying guides, see my top picks for what do I need for a baby list.

MY TOP PICK:
My preferred pick for best baby highchair is the Chicco Polly Magic Relax Highchair as not only can it be used as a highchair, it can also be used as baby bouncer from birth or as a chair that fits onto the table.


A highchair allows your baby to join you at the table at mealtimes and is a secure seat where they can sit and enjoy their food. There are so many different types to choose from. Wooden, multi-use, ones which can be used from birth and others which grow with your child.

We’ve picked 10 of the best highchairs to suit all budgets and tastes. If your kids are a little bit older, check out our article on the best kids table and chairs sets.

What type of highchair?

There are various styles of highchairs to opt for, from traditional to contemporary highchairs and foldable to portable ones. It really depends on when, how and where you are going to use it. Will you just be using it in your kitchen at home or will you take it from place to place?

Will it fit in with your home decor?

There are options which look really stylish and won’t detract too much from your home furniture, or you may opt for something that is bright and eye-catching. It really comes down to personal taste.

How safe is it?

Look for the British Standard EN 14988:2006 safety standard mark. Make sure you get one which includes a five-point harness so there is no chance of baby slipping through the gap or falling out.

There are so many excellent options now which will seat your child from birth right up until those late toddler years. Some even last until your child is 10 years old. You may want to invest a bit more now to save you having to then buy children’s chairs in the future.
