A booster seat is ideal for when your child no longer needs a highchair, but still needs help reaching the table. They can be used with most dining chairs, can help your child feel more grown-up and take up less space. You can choose a high chair booster seat that has a tray and cushions while others are essentially just straps. What works for you will depend on what age and stage your child is at and how portable you need the booster seat to be. Some can be used for babies from six months – just make sure it has a supportive backrest and harness. Avoid anything with nooks and crannies so you can clean the seat easily and lap belts are useful too, keeping toddlers more secure.
