Ask the Mums: High Chairs « Mummy Knows Best - The hands-on mum's guide to cool kids' stuff

Hi,

I am looking for a foldable high chair for my 8 month old son. Please suggest some shops in lajpat nagar or in and around lodi road,New delhi and if possible the best brand in this category.

Hi Rohini

“Eat on-in-own” (on my own??)is what my 9 month old learnt when she got into her baby high chair and that’s what she started to say when she was just over a year old. A part of me believes the high chair got her into ‘on-in-own’ mode and that (much to mummy’s disdain) food can be all fun and games.

Thankfully high chairs come with detachable trays, washable PVC fabric and even straps and belts to hold the squiggly ones in. There is another variant called the ‘quick chair’ that you can fold and carry for restaurant and other out of the house meals. The quick chair can be fixed to the sides of dining tables and work just like high chairs except these are even more compact and easy to carry. My personal favourite is the Chicco 360˚Table seat, this attaches to the dining table and moves a complete 360˚ so that baby sees and talks to everyone during a family meal. The good thing about table seats is that you encourage your child to eat with everyone at meal times and get acquainted with the nuances of the dining table.

Few brands are available in India – Juniors, Sun Baby, Fisher Price, Graco, Chicco, Mothercare. Sun baby is a budget brand where a high chair is priced between Rs. 1500-1750 while brands like Fisher Price cross the Rs.5000 mark. Juniors is a good choice in terms of sturdiness and are mid range, between Rs.2000-2500. Places you can check out in south Delhi – Chicco Shop, F-36, 1st Floor, Select City Walk, A3 District centre, Saket, New Delhi, Mothercare, A-3 Select City Walk Mall, Opp. Khirki Gaon, Saket, New Delhi. In Lajpat Nagar specifically you can try – Winner, B-4, Lajpat Nagar 2, New Delhi, Ph: 9871863002. Though the choices for branded products are limited here, a better bet would Greater Kailash M Block Market.
