This is the first factor to consider, and that is Safety! If the high chair is not safe for the baby, what is the purpose of buying such product? Check all the benefits and make a list of all the attributes which make it safe for your baby. Some of them include 5 point harness, locking mechanism in the wheels, etc.
Along with safety, the product must be easy on the usage part. Look out for less complex chairs.
Portability is a Must
Portability allows the user to easily move the chair from one location to another. Wheels help in adding this quality, and so wheels are compulsory. This will also help if you wish to change the room from a dining room to the kitchen table at any time. Also there must be locks present in the wheels, and this is one of the major safety features.
If you have any space constraints, then look out for the foldable chairs which would save a lot of space.
Features and the level of Adjustability
Many multi-functional units are trending nowadays. Such kind of high chairs can be used by the baby throughout his/her growth period. For example, one high chair comes along with a toddler seat, infant booster, and also with the young kid chair space. Therefore you can easily use this chair for your baby from the early stage till they are fully grown.
This quality of the chair which allows the babies to adapt the chair at different ages, is known as the Adjustability. So go for a quality chair for getting this adjustability feature.
Cost-Effective / Worth Your Penny
If you have a fixed budget, then it is easy for you. Simply look out for the best in that particular price budget. And for the rest of the buyers who don’t have any fix budget they can look out for the best unit among all the available high chairs (irrespective of the cost).

Say ‘No’ to second-hand chairs
We personally won’t recommend anyone to purchase a second-hand or used high chair. Main reason is that it won’t provide the right kind of protected as it is a used one. If you still get one used chair, then look for the manufacturing details provided on the product.
Check for the manufacturing date, and calculate how old is the product. If you don’t find the tag of these details, then no need to consider the product. Also look out for the Recalled High Chairs in the past.
Look for any certifications
It is definitely a good choice to go with certified products. In the case of high chairs, you will get one ASTM certifications, which stands for American Society for Testing and Materials. With this, you can trust the product that it will keep your child safe from any kind of trouble. You could be assured that the chair meets safety standards, and we recommend to look for such standards.
