I have tried out many high chairs and have to say that my favourite is the mamas and papas prima, there are a few others that ahve very similar features with a lower price tag, such as one from mothercare. I am not trying to promote a brand, just give general things to look for in whatever chair you decide to buy, as it can often be too late once you ahve bought one. I found that the reclining ones are good, the child can then be positioned to suit them rather than be propped up uncompfotably, there are also some seats whih offer seperate boosters which can be used with smaller children for added support and removed as they grow. I liked the seats that are height adjustable, many tables can be at different height and you can then choose to seat your baby at various tables/breakfast bars etc, the removable trays I think are better than the fixed ones, easier to clean and get baby in and out, again adjustabe ones are good for the childs comfort as they grow, to allow for a snugger fit. If space is a an issue then you will need to take this into account as soem chairs can be very bulky even when folded, and some do not fold at all, but may turn into a little table and chair for example. Another key feature I feel is how easy the chair is to keep clean, many of the chairs have lots of nooks and crannys that food get stuck in and I prefer the seats that have removable harness as the harness can get very diry and can become very easily stained and then look awful and are obviosly neot hygenic for baby either. I would also ensure that the harness is up to standard, preferably the 5 point, some chairs have as little as just the straps round the waist which I feel is not at all safe. The materials the chair is made of should also be taken into account, the wooded chairs are lovey to look at but after covered in teeth marks can be a breeding ground for germs! Hope this helps a little.
