You probably did not need a high chair when your baby was born, but now that your baby is starting to leave milk and gradually eating solid food, it’s time to buy a high chair.
The selection process goes beyond choosing cheap pink high chairs for girls and blue ones for boys. Nowadays there is a huge amount of models and brands of high chairs or eating chairs, each with different characteristics, which is why it is really difficult to realize which is the most suitable for your baby. But buying a high chair does not have to become a complicated and stressful situation; you just need to know what it is you are looking for.
As with all furniture, safety is a key issue when deciding which chair to buy. The most appropriate and safe would be to buy any type of chair that has a harness or a safety belt, preferably T-shaped, which will cross the hips and legs of your baby.
Some chairs also come equipped with a five-point seat belt, designed in such a way that it can firmly secure your baby so that he or she does not slip out of it.
On the other hand, you should also make sure that the tray latches are firmly attached to the chair and that the chair and tray do not wobble in any way.
And, of course, if it has sharp edges that protrude or attachments that hang; these could be extremely dangerous for the safety of your baby.
The easiest way to make sure the high chair meets all the necessary safety precautions is to look for one that has received the JMPA seal of approval.
JPMA is a national organization that has established safety standards for numerous products for children. If the chair has this seal of approval, it should be good to satisfy your baby’s needs.
