Simple or Swank: Wooden High Chairs

Simple or Swank: Wooden High Chairs

Some moms try their hardest to have their baby's accessories fit in with their furnishings. The bright-colored plastic of the most well-known baby brands doesn't always complement their aesthetic. When a tot reaches the six-month mark and begins eating solid food, parents looking to blend their child's seating in with their own may turn to wooden high chairs to create a uniform look. These more traditional-looking chairs won't set you back a month's rent.

Simple: The Eddie Bauer Wooden Highchair ($120) is available in two wood finishes and features an adjustable tray table, rubber grips to keep it in place, and a three-point harness.
Swank: The Van Beek Kids Peek A Boost Chair ($350) is made of solid birch, boasts a five-point harness, and comes with a removable phthalate-free plastic tray. $50 from the sale of each chair is donated to one of eight charities benefiting victims of abuse and women and children in need.

I don't like wooden ones because they can't recline. When I first started solids, my boys needed to not sit straight up or they got mad. They had to be slightly reclined.I think I'll need it for my daughter as well. She won't start solids for at least a few more weeks, but she likes to lean forward when she's sitting straight up, which would be a huge "head bang into the tray" problem.
