When did you start using a high chair

I have been using the bumbo or holding DD while I feed her solids. She's not really a fan of the bumbo. She sits in the tripod but can't sit up totally on her own yet. Just wondering when you started to use the high chair- I'm assuming once they sit on their own?

Re: When did you start using a high chair

  • Before she could sit up on her own, day one of solids. Are you using a regular stroller for your LO yet? You don't have to wait till they sit on their own to use a highchair. We tried the bumbo and she arched out of it.
  • The day we started solids we used the high hair. We wanted LO to associate eating solids with the high chair so we try to stick to that routine, even in restaurants.

  • If we had one right now, we'd be using it, but just for solids. I don't get why people will feed their newborns bottles in a high chair. It seems almost lazy...

  • Five months but she was sitting well on her own and we meeded a place for her to sit while we ate or prepared dinner.  She just started trying some solids this past week.  We got the keekaroo with infant insert and so far we love it!

  • We started one at 5 months. She can crawl like crazy but cannot sit straight unsuported and the high chair helps with that. She loves her high chair. I put toys on the tray and we play. She feels 'big' I think being at the table with DH and I

  • Depends on the type you have... We have a peg prego and she can sit in it easily and when she was smaller we just leaned it back the chair reclines.. We try at resturants but she doesn't have enough control to sit in them without a lot of blankets. I kn

    DD has been in her high chair for about a month now.  Like pp, she would arch back in the Bumbo and I knew she would get hurt if I didn't make the switch. We have the Chicco 360 chair and she loves that she can be a part of the table while she e

  • We put both in them before we started solids so they could sit with us at the table. So maybe around 3.5 months or so. They had good head control, but couldn't sit up. Now that we do solids they sit in their highchairs.

  • DS has been sititng in his highchair since he was 4 months old. We have the FP spacesaver so we could recline the seat until he was older and could sit up on his own. We wanted him to get used to sitting in the highchair before we started feeding him.<

  • I started putting LO in his highchair around 8 weeks. He hated not being able to see me well when I was in the kitchen or while DH and I were eating. 

    We haven't started solids yet, that will happen sometime in the next 2 or 3 months. He jus


  • DS has used the high chair since the first time I gave him solids (5months 3 weeks).  It is the only place I feed him because I want him to have that association.
