  • My daughter is 9 months old and has never used a high chair. She has 2 booster seats, one with a tray and one without. I don't think there is much of a difference in which you use. I don't use a high chair because I don't have anywhere to store it. So I think you can use a booster at any age.

  • We plan to switch my daughter over when she is tall enough to be at table height in just a booster OR she seems to be more comfortable in just the booster. Also she must be capable of understand that at mealtimes we sit and stay...but she seems to have that down already.

  • I went from a high chair to a booster after 9 months. As long as the child has good balance and can sit comfortably at the table I say go for it.

  • I bought my son one of those booster seats that you can strap him in. He was 18 months old. That way he can sit at the table with everyboy else, but you don't have to worry about him falling out of it.
