The weaning stage is an exciting milestone in your baby's life which sees them graduating from drinking liquid foods, to gaining a seat at the grown-ups' table. What does that mean for you? It's time to invest in a highchair.

Now that your little one can finally join the rest of the family and become a part of mealtimes (bye-bye clean walls) choosing the right highchair is key, and surprisingly – there's a lot to think about.

Things like safety functions, portability and – let's be honest – the overall look play an important role when deciding on the right highchair. After all, it is a piece of furniture, and if it doesn't match that emerald rug, then it's a no-go.

Parents are perhaps among the busiest people on this planet, so we've created a handy guide to help you quickly navigate this highchair shopping business in no time.

Things to look out for when choosing a highchair

Age suitability: We suggest checking what age the highchair is suitable for. Many highchairs can be used from birth while others are only suitable from six months when they start weaning.

Space: If you only have a small kitchen or dining area, you'll want to choose a less bulky and more compact option.

Cleaning: Yep, your baby will smear every piece of food they get their hands on all over the highchair, so we suggest finding a highchair that can be easily cleaned.

Weight: Don't fancy an arm workout every meal time? It might be a good idea to get a lightweight chair or one with wheels.

Multi-function: Many highchairs can now be converted into different styles of seats, from rockers to booster seats, catering for children as old as 12. If you're looking for a highchair that will grow with your child, check how many functions it has.

Foldable: Yep, you can still go on summer hols when you've got a baby, so you might want to opt for a highchair that can be folded down when you're jet-setting.
