  • It depends on when you want to start using it. The biggest benefit to a high chair is that many of them have an adjustable back that can recline, which is good for babies who can't sit on their own yet. If you want baby to sit at the table with you when you eat even before he's actually eating, then a high chair would be good. Otherwise, a booster seat will last longer; and sitting is one of the recommended signs of readiness for solids.

  • High chair is easier for the beginning but once the kid hits around age 1, the booster is better, it's easier for him/her to be part of the family at the table.
    The ones that strap on the actual chair are great. No amount of wiggling will knock it down.

  • We got the space save high chair. It does both. It's a high chair and then as they get older it is a booster seat.

  • we have space saver high chairs that do recline. my 3 week old can sit in it, and so can my 2 year old! there is no need for the extra high chair taking up space, which is my favorite part! i think they are fisher price
