What high chair do mom's like?

My son is almost 7 months and I'm searching for a high chair for him. Probably something in the mid-price range since I'd like it to last for a long time! Any suggestions?

My mom bought one of those ones that you can take apart to use as a table and chair when the child gets older and it's great. She bought it used to have at her place when my sister and I bring our kids over.
I have had a couple of different things that I really like. When my son was about a month old I bought a Swing and Meals by Fisher Price and LOVED it! But your little one is a bit big for a swing. The only thing that I found with it is it's HUGE and I just didn't have the space for it when we moved, but I will never get ride of it, I'm storing it right now. The one I use everyday now is a Healthy Care Booster Seat from Fisher Price. http://www.fisher-price.com/fp.aspx?st=2... It's wonderful! I love that I can take it anywhere. My sister bought one for her first one, that is now 3. She used it, then we borrowed it for a few months until her youngest needed it. They are VERY durable! If there are local websites for used stuff, look for one there, you will save a lot on it.

I have a baby trend high chair. It wasn't expensive but I think it was built to last. I got it at toys r us... got it on sale for $60.00 but the regular price is about $90-100 I think. It is a big one.. but I wanted a big one and it has all the features I was looking for. Tray top that is removable and can go in the dishwasher, vinyl padding with a neutral design... safari them that is super easy to keep clean, large basket underneath to store thing, reclines, folds up ( although not very small).

I love my space saver/convertible high chair. I think it's fisher price. It straps onto a regular dining room chair and is easy to clean. It also turns into a booster when the babies are older.

I bought the wood restaurant high chairs and I love them. The look nice and are sturdy and very easy to clean. I had the fold up one with tray and all that previously but it was hard to clean and the coushion wore out from washing all the time. These are awesome and not that expensive. I got mine from a restaurant supply company.

Depending on your space and if you want to be able to take it with you or not depends on what you should get.
I have The First Years one from Babies 'R Us. It straps onto the top of a kitchen r dining room chair. It reclines and is good from newborn to toddler. It also converts into a booster seat when the time comes. It is easy to take off the chair to take with us and very easy to strap onto the chair. Fast, simple, affordable, compact. These are all the factors that pushed me to buy it and for $23 I have gotten my monies worth plus much much more... The covering over the seat easily comes off for throwing into the washer to clean and easily slips right back on after wards.

Here is the link to look at the seat I am talking about.

I like the convertable Space Saver high chair/ booster seat from Walmart 45 bucks I think. You strap into one of your kitchen chairs it can reclin for little babies and sits up with a try for older babies, then all the highchair attatchments come off to make a booster seat for toodlers. I have had mine since my son was 5 mos. and now he's 3 we still use it everday at the table it fantastic!!

I would consider uses...I have I large Graco, it reclines and adjusts up and down height easily. I also have a top of chair one...it also reclines. I like it because I can throw it in car when going to get togethers and family gatherings.

Yes, the room thing was a HUGE issue for me, since we have a tiny kitchen that barely fits the table as it is. So we got one that sits on top of a chair. It's the exact same size-wise as the high chairs with legs, except it takes up minimal space in comparison. I think it's Safety 1st brand...anyway, I love it! And since it doesn't have the legs, it's much cheaper. In Canada, I think it cost something like $40 and it's just as reliable as the other high chairs.

But whatever you get, I would recommend that you make sure there aren't lots of tiny little nooks and crannies for food to get stuck into. The simpler the design the better. It's just a high chair--it doesn't need to be an entertainment center complete with TV and speakers.

I would recommend a highchair with a tray that it is easy to remove for cleaning. The padding in the chair should be an easy to clean vinyl. Graco is a very good brand and we love ours. It folds easily for storage. Also judge the amount of space you have in your house because some high chairs take up more room than others.
