What age did your child stop using their high chair?

My daughter is 2.5 and hasn't used it in a while- so i folded it up and put it in the shed last night and she woke up this morning and immediately said MY CHAIR MY CHAIR WHERE IS MY CHAIR I MISS MY CHAIR.

Hasn't mentioned anything since but got me to wondering, how long are kids supposed to use these things?

  • Depending on how big/small they are. I think my kids were all around 1 1/2 to 2 before they stopped using it.

  • I put my DD in a booster when we started babysitting a child 5 mos younger than her. She was almost 1 1/2 when she ate half her meals in a booster. She went to the booster full time when she was almost 2 1/2.

  • I never did a booster. I want to get a shorter table and chair set though. Ours are too high. Something with chairs that have arm rests. Always afraid shes gonna topple over.
