Suggestions on High chair?

Hi there, does anyone have suggestions/ reviews on high chairs ? I know most of US & Canada products are same but if anyone has particular suggestions for high chairs in Canada, would love to hear.

Thanks in advance

So I like feeder seats that allow the feet to touch the floor but then I do realize the product is on the floor. And sometimes the positioning still isn’t good. Most all high chairs are at the height of the adult ( which is nice for mommy and daddy) but not ideal for baby. Feet are often dangling with no support . All high chairs seem to have the piece for he feet to rest …but reality is that baby needs to be a toddler before they can sit grounded with feet on footplate . Having the feet grounded gives trunk control . Trunk control gives greater ability to swallow. Trunk control gives greater upper extremity feeding coordination. All therapists know this so why do we not have a better high chair ? Idk ? I will provide some pictures of a Tripp trapp chair that does have adjustable solid foot floor and fisher price floor high chair . I guess parents don’t buy the Tripp trapp chair because it’s not plush and comfy like our American high chairs . I have designed a floor seat with tray that can be used for eating, activities etc . I am waiting to get a child safety certificate before I make it available . It is patented bc it has a pull up bar to practice standing when tray is removed.

Love all of those suggestions!! Here is a post from my Instagram about finding the perfect highchair. I like the Keekaroo also and have some other favorites on an Amazon page I created (not trying to sell them, but it is a great way to see them all). Let me know if you want the link.

Hi,
That is such a great question. We have a blog post on what to look for in a high chair as well as some of our favorites with different price points here on our blog.

I’ve also found Yeah Baby Goods which has a great after market footrest that can be added to a chair that doesn’t provide great foot support.

Hope this helps!

I’m not sure the link posted correctly. Here’s the article for reference.
