  • 2018 Silver Best Highchair
Mother & Baby 2018 Silver Award Winner

At a glance:

Our silver award winner, the Peg Perergo Siesta highchair allows your little one to do just that, with its handy recline seat. The height can be adjusted to allow you to feed your baby at different levels and the bold colour looks great in most kitchens. That said, the tray, although being large, can be a little fiddly to clean.

What they say:

“The high chair-cum-recliner. A multi-purpose design, suitable for use right from baby's birth. The faux leather Siesta high chair accompanies your baby as he grows, from birth to three years of age. Versatile, multi-functional and ultra comfortable, Siesta is suitable from birth. It can be used as a comfortable recliner and, later on, as a chair when your child can sit at table with adults. The advantage of Siesta is that you have two products in one, so you have more room and the house is not cluttered by too many baby items.”

Tested by mum Kirsty Christofi for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would definitely recommend this highchair, as I think it will accommodate a child from birth until they are old enough to sit at a table. I would be happy to have my young baby sat in the highchair before weaning age so they can feel involved at family mealtime, and be level to the table. I love that the highchair can be lowered so I can sit on the floor and feed her, and it’s also really helpful that it can fold.

How did the product make your life easier?

I really like this product, and feel it really does make my life easier. My daughter is very comfortable in it and often falls asleep, so the recline feature is a great addition. As I have smooth flooring it is easy to move the highchair around the house so I can get things done when the baby is eating, or if she has a little sleep after her lunch.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product over a basic highchair, as I feel young babies would be more comfortable. It looks to me that the highchair would last from baby age through to toddler, so there’s no need to change chairs. The tray is also large enough for my baby to (mostly) keep her food on it, and prevents too much mess on the floor. It is also really easy to clean.

What changes would you make to the product?

The adjustable features of the highchair can be a little stiff, and it does take a little figuring out the best way to adjust. The main thing I would question is the harness heights, as my baby is young and though the harness fitted well, I think it would be preferable to offer maybe one or two additional slots for the harness height.

Tested by mum Lauren Morris for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Yes, I would recommend this highchair, as it was easy to fold away, super comfy, and looks great! We had the orange one, and it actually matched my kitchen perfectly! It was easy to clean, with removable trays and a useful wipe clean fabric seat. It’s also easy to move around because of the wheels, and can be adjusted to different heights depending on the size of the table.

How did this product make your life easier?

My boy loved sitting in the chair! The shoulder straps meant he couldn't stand up in it, which he often manages to do in designs with lap straps, meaning not only that he would sit for longer and would eat more of his meals, but also that less of it ended up on my floor! The high back and leg rest meant he was well supported, and super comfy!

Would you choose this product to win?

I think the fact that this chair can be used from birth is a great selling point, as it gives the product longevity. I loved everything about this chair apart from the price. I know a lot of people will spend large amounts of money for baby products, but I am quite thrifty, and love a bargain. It’s a definite winner in my eyes, but comes at a hefty price tag.

What changes would you make to this product?

The price. I loved it, but I could never justify spending this amount of money on a highchair. Although I may have felt differently if I’d have had it to use form birth, meaning I would have been able to make use of the different functions. However, at the end of the day, its main use is a highchair so for that reason, I do feel it is a tad expensive.

Tested my mum Kristie Riley for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to a childminder or a large family where more than one child may be required to use it, primarily because it is so easy to change between stages. My son prefers to be at the lowest level and sat at the most upright position. My young niece has used the chair to nap in on occasion, and she has slept soundly. I would also recommend this as my son will sit happily in it because it has wheels, where it's always been a fight to get him into a regular one.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product has made it easier for me as I can wheel it from my kitchen to the dinning room and living room and back, although it does move better across wooden flooring. This means I can sit my son in the highchair while I prepare his meals, and move him to other rooms when everything is ready. I also find it easy to change positions, especially when I am looking after my nieces and nephews who are younger than my son. I have found the harness to be great for an older child.

Would you choose this product to win?

I'm not sure I would choose this product for a child that is a similar age to mine (almost two) as he doesn't need to be laid back or be moved too much. However, I would definitely choose this is if I had a younger baby, as it would grow with them. The seat fabric is really comfortable and easily cleaned, however, this highchair is ideal for us as we can change levels to suit our breakfast bar, dining table and when my son is in the living room, he likes to be at the lowest level.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would say this highchair is perhaps a little wide and bulky. I have also found that it is a little stiff and sometimes difficult to adjust. I think the highchair table is awkward to get on with, especially considering little fingers are in the way when trying to attach it to the chair. Because the tray has two layers, my son likes to take the top one off so it could be attached more securely. Although the harness is a good height for my two-year-old, who is tall for his age, I do feel it may be too high to be comfortable for smaller children.

Tested by mum Helen Thomas for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

This is the best highchair I've ever seen. The quality of the materials is excellent, the chair looks comfortable for baby to sit in, the height adjustable settings mean that is adaptable and incredibly versatile, and the design and materials used mean that it is easy to clean and my daughter, who previously hated sitting in a highchair, has used this product without issue.

How did this product make your life easier?

The height adjust features make it an excellent addition to the household. During the testing process, I've used the product whilst sat at the dining room table, in the kitchen against a high breakfast island and also giving her snacks whilst sat at the same height as me on the sofa. The adaptability is a huge selling point for me. The product is sturdy and well built, meaning that when it is folded away for storage I don't have to worry about her leaning on it or pulling herself up to standing either near or on it.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would like the features it contains, however, I don't think any highchair should cost this much. As lovely as the features are, I think it is overpriced and that they have potentially priced themselves out of the market. For design, ease of use and quality, it should win, but I've also seen Chicco highchairs with similar features, that are a fraction of the cost.

What changes would you make to this product?

The tray for baby to eat from is incredibly fiddly to put in and remove. It uses shape recognition to attach itself to the chair and a pull device to release - both of which are awkward, and the arms fixed to the chair that the tray fixes onto are slightly off in terms of distance and lining up with the bars on the tray.

Tested by mum Stephanie Jones for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this highchair due to the ease of use, the simple, one handed recline, the removal of the tray, and the great design. I really like the bold colour and the height adjustment. The highchair is not as bulky as I first thought it might have been from the images. I love the ease of transporting the chair around, which is great when my child wants to sit in the kitchen and watch/help with meal preparation.

How did this product make your life easier?

The highchair makes life easier for parents because it appears to be comfortable, is easy to clean, and you can leave your child in it if they need a nap, but still have them around at the table with the rest of the family. The reclining function is a very simple, one handed action, and the tray is easy to clean compared to others I have used in the past.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this highchair above others at the moment, as I think it has a wide variety of uses. I like the bold colour, and it is so easy to clean. It’s nice and maneuverable, and the tray is large enough to hold food for my child, who likes to play with their food and often spreads it around before eating it.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing it would be to have more height options to suit a wider range of ages and table heights. There is nothing else at this point that I would change about the highchair.
