People who have had babies, high chair

What is the age range, generally, to have a high chair as opposed to a booster seat. I have a 2 year old niece (turns 2 in a week) that will be coming over now and then and we want to get some stuff for her so her parents don't need to bring it all the time. Is 2 too old for a high chair? Would a good booster be better?

Get her the high chair. She's too young for a booster seat.

2-years-old is on the border, we have a 27 months old still in high chair and comfortable, but in a week or 2 she goes to a booster seat. She is a bit on a petite size though. If a baby is on a bigger side, get a booster chair for future use as well, high chair would not work for much longer

Two isn't too old for a high chair, but it's getting up there. She knows how to sit and eat with a spoon, so I would suggest a booster seat with a strap to keep her secure, and a plastic place mat.

Is there some strange unwritten parent law that says you must forever turn ages into months instead of years? I understand less then a year the months thing but really 27 months? Dude why not just say she is 2?

That's kinda of the way I am heading. The chair we are thinking of converts to booster so it can be both. Plus, if we have our own kids later we can use it for them. I just don't want to get crappy stuff that won't fit her.

Boosters are fine if they have the straps and the snap in tray thing...

I use one for my 8 month old. High chairs are just too clunky and take up space. The boosters are nice because the booster itself also straps onto my existing chairs. You can always take off the tray part and use it as a regular booster as well.

Booyah. There you go. Best of both worlds. Looks like Daddy is going to get Junior one of those.

If you had a kid you would understand. Their growth and development progresses almost weekly. Monthly changes are HUGE.

Yeah, this is how I used to roll! I agree high chairs take up a lot of space; man it's been a while since I used one for my two kids.

I usually don't but for this thread's purpose, I decided to be as precise as possible.

There are several options for convertibles out there-- Paul, go to babies r us or buy buy baby-- they heve huge selections. Just be warned-- do not go in there without some sort of liquor in your system. Even during the weekdays it can be murderous. You go in there unprepared and you might not have sex again for a year. Or more.

Buy a booster. If you buy a high chair she will be out of it very quickly. As others have said, just buy her a booster seat with straps. My daughter started using a booster seat with straps just after she turned 1.

Yes, but they wont take expired ones like BB&B will. Just an FYI.

I agree with Kruz the age in months thing, I'm hoping at age 2 to switch to years though.

A kid size table and chair works the best.

You turn it into months because that is the developmental stages you are looking at.

Thanks all. I think I found a good chair that also acts as a booster as needed... Graco Blossom High Chair
