What are travel highchairs?
Travel highchairs are exactly that, a travel version of a highchair to take with you for feeding baby away from home. It is more compact that a highchair as it doesn’t have the long legs, and often attaches to a standard dining chair.
Easy to transport wherever you are going and ensures your baby is safe and comfortable when eating away from home.
How much do travel highchairs cost?
Travel highchairs can cost as a little as £20, sometimes even slightly less for the basic models, but can go up to nearer £100 from some manufacturers.
What travel highchair options are there?
There are different types of travel options for feeding your child out and about.
Travel highchairs – Easy to travel with, they look very much like the seat section of a highchair but rather than sit on its own legs, it attaches to a chair.
Fabric harness – this is a very simple option that just wraps your baby to the chair. It covers the safety aspect so your baby won’t fall as it is only fabric. Your baby will be the height of the chair and not raised higher; it’s a handy option you can easily carry around with you for emergencies.
Foldable boosters – Extra travel-friendly as they are designed to fold and can be transported easily, and used in the same way as a normal booster seat.
Clamp-on seats –These are designed for your baby to sit at the table with you as they clamp onto the edge of a table, so wherever you are your baby can join you at mealtimes.
