Hauck Alpha Grow With You Wooden Highchair £35.75 @ Amazon
Having had three kids I reckon I know a bit about highchairs - I've had the usual big metal-framed ones with the enormous plastic tray at the front and they were fine, except the occupant couldn't properly sit AT the table with everyone else as they were marooned in a sort of no-mans land; at the table once-removed if you will.
So I decided that for the youngest (4 next month, I can't believe it!) we'd get a wooden high chair like this so he could actually have his bowl/plate and cup etc ON the table and really be right there in the thick of meal times.
I bought another well-known make of highchair that's just like this one *wink* and it cost me the best part of £100. I didn't mind spending the money because they ARE awesome chairs and it did/does exactly what I wanted it to do, but if I could have got something pretty much identical to it for almost a third of that price I WOULD have!
So these chairs adapt as your child grows because you can move the seat and footrest up and down so it's a perfect fit for them between the ages of 6 months and 10 years old. Yep, you read that right - this chair could be with you for the next 10 years if your baby is a new one!
Being able to adjust both of these things to fit your child, rather than your child growing to fit the chair, they are widely accepted as being good for encouraging correct posture when sitting. It also comes with a restraining bar (my £100 one didn't, pah!) and a crotch strap to stop tiny ones sliding out underneath.
Amazon have reduced this from £49.99 to £35.75 AND because you're spending over a tenner, you'll get £2 to put towards an MP3 download; delivery is free too with the infamous SuperSaver deal.
