I probably stopped using his altogether around 17mos. I also had the one that straps to a regular chair. He now sits in a regular chair at the table.

We ditched the high chair for my 2 year old about 4 months ago. It was his choice to sit in a big-boy chair so why not let him? We haven't had a problem with it at all.

I still make them sit in booster seats and a high chairs when we go out to eat somewhere....I can be responsible for a possible mess at my house, not someone elses place of business lol.

I moved both boys to a small table at around 2 and it sits right next to the big dining room table.  They behave so much better not strapped into a high chair!  However, my oldest son is almost 3 1/2 and my ex still puts him in a high chair at his house so that he doesn't have to watch him.

Ditched the high hair at about 18 months but still use the booster at the table cause we have a high top dining room table and she fits better in the booster. She's 22 months now.

I think my other kids moved to a booster at the table around 2.5 yrs.  My youngest is 2 and in her highchair but it attaches to a regular chair and she is pulled up to the table (though still using the tray).  I am personally not a fan of the separate little tables for kids because I think the family should all sit around one table for a family dinner.

Around 2. I don't like the idea of the kids sitting at a seperate table. I think a family should eat around the same table together.

 We have the space saver chair. When she can reach the table without it, she will sit at the chair normally.

we still use it with straps at 16 months. I will use the high chair till he is 2 and then move to a booster till he is tall enough to it at our table we only use one table
