baby high chair or booster seat

When your child becomes able to eat in a seated position, you have a number of options open to you: a high chair or a booster seat. These two childcare accessories have many advantages in common, but there are a few differences. Which accessory should you choose between a high chair and a booster seat? Bébé2Luxe helps you compare the two and make your choice.


Booster seats: from what age?

A high chair or booster seat becomes essential at a certain age, around 6 months, when your baby starts to stand up straight. At this point, he or she wants to sit around the family table to share the meal, like a grown-up, and start to fully discover the world around them. This is an important time for socialising. 


Baby's high chair

Buying a highchair means your baby is growing up! He can now eat like you, sitting on a chair, and share convivial meals with the family.

Advantages of the high chair

Generally speaking, the main advantage of a highchair is its comfort. It allows the child to feel at ease and often has a shelf placed at the right height so that your baby can enjoy his toys before and after eating. As they grow, it will be easier for them to pick up food and put it in their mouths if they are at the right height.

The highchair also offers optimum safety, thanks to a practical fastening system. Last but not least, they are often designed and aesthetically pleasing to blend in perfectly with your home, while guaranteeing your child's comfort and safety at the table.


Disadvantages of the high chair

The main disadvantage of a highchair is that it takes up more space than a booster seat, so it's hard to take it with you when you travel, go away for the weekend or have dinner with friends.


The chair booster

A booster seat is an accessory that attaches to an existing chair using straps. It also provides good support for your child at mealtimes, as long as you choose a quality booster seat that's suitable.


Advantages of the chair booster

The chair booster is a practical baby accessory that's easy to carry because it's lightweight and folds up. So you can take it with you to restaurants or even on picnics. The harness keeps your child perfectly in position when seated. 


Disadvantages of chair risers

Unlike highchairs, some booster seats are not suitable for small children. Other booster seats lack comfort and do not have a shelf, forcing the child to eat on the table, which can be complicated. Finally, booster seats are often less stable than high chairs, so your child will need constant supervision.


Chair or booster seat: how do you choose?

As you can see, children's highchairs and booster seats are in fierce competition with each other in the homes of young parents. Each has its advantages and disadvantages.

When deciding between a high chair and a booster seat, it's important to consider your priorities. Parents on the move will prefer the booster seat, while those looking for comfort will opt for the highchair. In terms of price, the highchair is slightly more expensive than the booster seat.
