What we say:

Although it isn’t a purpose-designed nursing chair, this high-backed seat is a popular choice with mums for feeds. The covers are removable and machine-washable, so it’s easy to keep clean, and a matching footstool is available separately. It doesn’t rock or recline, but it’s an ideal budget buy.

Tested by Emily Nellist, from Newark, mum to Patrick, three weeks, and Noah, two. She said: 

This chair is a bargain, but the price tag means compromising on overall quality – you can instantly tell it’s not as luxurious as the other chairs we tested. It took some time to put together, but the instructions were straightforward to follow. Overall, I’d rather invest in a nursing chair that’s really comfortable rather than really affordable. 

Tested by Claire Thornhill, from Cumbria, is mum to Ollie, three months, Luke, four, and Erin, six. She said: 

No recline features, but the angle is well-designed – it’s upright enough to make feeding comfortable, yet I can lie back and relax while feeding too. The open arm rests are a real plus point, as Ollie’s legs can slot beneath them, meaning he’s less squashed. The price is fabulous and overall this is the one I’d most recommend for breastfeeding. 

Tested by Sara Neale, from Shropshire, is mum to Rupert, six months, and Ralph, 21 months. She said: 

Very quick to assemble. The shape makes it relaxing to sit in, but it doesn’t rock or recline, whereas the movement of some of the other chairs really soothed Rupert. There’s no padding on the armrests, which isn’t problematic, but I needed cushions for extra comfort. The open sides make this feel extremely roomy in any feeding position.
